Peppa Pig Theme Park Reveals New Accessible Ride Vehicle and Will Open as a Certified Autism Center

PEPPA PIG THEME PARK REVEALS NEW ACCESSIBLE RIDE VEHICLE AND WILL OPEN AS A CERTIFIED AUTISM CENTER

Florida’s Newest Theme Park Prepares to be the Ultimate Theme Park for All Preschoolers with Enhanced Ride and Play Accessibility

The World’s First Peppa Pig Theme Park will open as a Certified Autism Center when the park debuts on February 24, 2022. The new park shared this commitment along with a reveal of its newly designed ride vehicle, which allows for increased accessibility for children with wheelchairs, to media at the IAAPA Expo today in Orlando. A full Accessibility Guide along with other longer term plans for continued updates are also in development for all the park’s oinktastic experiences, including its six rides, six themed playscapes and water play area.

NEW! PEPPA PIG THEME PARK ENHANCES RIDE AND PLAY ACCESSIBILITY

Whee! When the Peppa Pig Theme Park opens this February, little piggies and their families will ride to the sky to enjoy brilliant views from Peppa Pig’s Balloon Ride. Guests will enjoy the ride from whimsical baskets, crafted to look like a hot air balloon and are specially designed to allow children who use wheelchairs to roll on to the “balloon basket” without needing to transfer from their wheelchairs. Merlin Entertainments’ creative and project delivery team, Merlin Magic Making, along with the ride manufacturers at Technical Park worked closely to develop this adaptation to a fan-favorite ride to ensure more children could experience it safely along with a grownup, or adult companion. This is just one part of a larger commitment from Merlin Entertainments to develop attractions that can be enjoyed by all guests, of every ability.

In addition to this very special ride, the playful park’s marquee water play attraction, the Muddy Puddles Splash Pad has been developed with kid-friendly accessibility in mind. The ground will be specially graded for wheelchair use and several heights of water play elements are being choreographed for the enjoyment of all guests and all abilities. This includes a tunnel of water hoops that can be navigated in a wheelchair and additional interactive splash surprises at varying height levels.

Back on dry land, explorers and “little piggies” will discover additional fun adventures that are sized with these same guiding principles of accessibility in mind. Children in wheelchairs will be able to maneuver and explore the sensory-rich trail of Peppa’s Pedal Bike Tour without leaving their own wheelchairs. The enchanting, greenery-covered maze walls of George’s Fort have also been mapped out to all ADA guidelines and standards. Additionally, all the Fun Fair free game counters have been constructed at accessible heights to be easily enjoyed by everyone.

Oink, oink, look out grownups!  Ticket, Annual Passes and Vacation Packages are now available on PeppaPigThemePark.com/Florida.
