A Peppa Pig theme park is opening in Texas complete with rides, forts and “muddy puddles.”

How many rides are there in Peppa Pig Theme Park?

It'll be North America's second Peppa Pig Theme Park. The first opened in Central Florida last year.

Merlin Entertainments and Hasbro revealed details and construction information that has already begun on the park, which will include five rides, seven themed play areas, and a splash pad that will offer up an "oinktastic" experience for kids.

Where will Peppa Pig Theme Park be located?

The Peppa Pig fun is set to come to North Richland Hills in 2024. The park, which will be just a few miles from the indoor play attraction Peppa Pig World of Play in Grapevine, will also have an aerial carousel experience with Peppa Pig’s Balloon Ride. Families can even set sail on Grandad Dog’s Pirate Boat Ride and explore Grampy Rabbit’s Dinosaur Park.
