Peppa Pig World Review: What’s Special?
- Peppa Pig themed rides – no size restrictions for little ones accompanied by an adult (except for one ride)
- Sophie’s favourite ride – George’s Dinosaur Adventure
- Meeting Peppa & George at Madame Gazelle’s School House
- We loved it & gave it a ‘thumbs up’ from Sophie’s Nursery & a double thumbs up from Peppa Pig obsessed Sophie!!!
Links to our themes:
We got to Peppa Pig World about 10.30 a.m. on the day of our visit. It was easy to find with parking no hassle at all & free!
As we could go in school term time most of the theme park was relatively quiet, although Peppa Pig World was much busier. Other pre-school toddler ‘owners’ had obviously had the same idea! We did some queuing for the most popular rides in the morning, but by the afternoon we got on with very little delay.
Sophie, initially overwhelmed by the amount of Peppa Pig themed rides & activities, soon got into her stride wanting to go on everything. However, she showed very non-British queuing traits by trying to sneak to the front of the line by joining other families!
She really enjoyed everything, but…
Visiting Peppa’s House with the pig family in their kitchen. She also loved naming the other large-sized characters from the Peppa stories placed around the rides. Sophie later met Peppa & George for real (well she thought so!) at the School House.
She loved steering on Daddy Pig’s Car Ride & singing on Grandpa Pig’s Little Train – the Peppa train version of ‘The Wheels on the Bus’ was playing throughout the ride. A current favourite of hers, especially the ‘… All day long …’ line!
We won a large Daddy Pig toy, who Sophie insisted went in her pushchair. We also had trouble resisting the toys in the Peppa Pig World shop – a Peppa teddy did come home with us! Plus we succumbed to a photo of Sophie with the Pig family in some muddy puddles!
We also had fun on other ‘non-Peppa’ children’s rides in the rest of the park, such as the Trekking Tractors, Rio Grande Train & Viking Boats.
We ate at the main restaurant – rather busy, but with a reasonable selection of food & drinks for us veggies.
All the staff we encountered were very friendly & helpful.
We didn’t explore the whole park, but the grounds & gardens saw were very pleasant & the topiary very clever.
We’re not fans of caged birds & hadn’t realised there were a few aviaries. Some of the enclosures seemed small for some large birds e.g. vultures. However we had no opportunity to find out anything about the set-up so can’t make a balanced judgement.
We had no issues using our own pushchair in Peppa Pig World & leaving it at the rides as necessary. If you don’t want to take your own apparently strollers can be hired at the Park – great idea!
