NORTH RICHLAND HILLS, Texas – Construction on North America’s second Peppa Pig theme park is underway in North Texas.
A groundbreaking ceremony for the park was held in North Richland Hills on Wednesday morning.
An adorable construction crew in pink hard hats and vests dug into the pink sand to kick off construction for the theme park.
The new park will be located right next to the NRH20 Water Park on Boulevard 26.
“This central location will make it perfect for an amusement park of this type. It just fits,” said North Richland Hills Mayor Oscar Trevino.
The park is expected to open just ahead of Peppa’s 20-year anniversary in 2024.
Hiring will begin in 2023.
The park will have rides, interactive attractions, shows and more from the world of Peppa Pig.
The event organizers say, “The North Texas Peppa Pig Theme Park will provide a one-of-a-kind experience for children and their families, offering a vibrant and immersive environment where they can play, oink and splash to their heart’s content.”
The popular British TV show is geared to preschoolers.
The theme park will be operated by Merlin Entertainments, who is also behind places like LEGOLAND and SEA LIFE Aquariums.
The first Peppa Pig Theme Park in the U.S. opened in central Florida 2022.
