We love going to theme parks, however it is a rare occurrence due to our location. When we received a lovely Royal Invitation to the Peppa Pig Preview Event for two new rides, I just knew the kids would love it.
We have been to Peppa Pig world a few years ago, so I was excited to see the new expansion. Peppa Pig world is set in a four acre site with in the site of Paultons park. The two new rides are a brilliant addition to the park.
J is a big fan of Peppa Pig so this was an amazing experience for him, it brought everything to life for him. Especially getting to meet all the characters.
The two new rides that are in new area of Peppa Pig world are The Queens Flying Coach Ride and Grampy Rabbits Sailing club. They are both brilliant.
Grampy Rabbits Sailing Club
A brilliant boat ride with individual boats that go round a little river to discover pirate Island. This ride proved popular because we have a sounds book of the story of pirate island. Meaning both the children were familiar with it.
During the ride you go past a picnic, different characters and of course pirate island. The story is also told with the voices from peppa pig and characters. In my eyes, its the little things like this that bring Peppa Pig to life.
The children were very excited after the ride, before we ventured over to the other ride we had a little wonder. Saw a few more characters. George pig took E’s hat of her head and put it on his ear. As you can imagine the children found this very funny.
We decided to enjoy a drink and one of the complimentary cakes offered at the event whilst catching up with another blogger friend. The children loved the cakes. yummy pink iced cakes with different characters of Peppa Pig on top of them.
All of the children loved the cakes. E liked them so much she is now asking me to make some! She may be disappointed if they don’t taste as good! The children were desperate to test out the other next ride, so after finishing our drinks and cakes we walked over to it.
The Queens Flying Coach Ride
This very ‘royal’ ride is a monorail that travels around the new area and has fantastic views across Peppa Pig World. The Queens castle stands at an impressive ten metres and is the focal point of the new area. The ride is made up of individual coaches. As the coach goes round a story about Peppa visiting the Queen story is told.
The view from the ride is amazing and the kids loved seeing everything as well as listening to Peppa and The Queen talking.
We all really enjoyed the ride and went on it a couple of times.
What is great about the Queens castle is that Grampy Rabbits sailing boat ride goes round the bottom of the castle, it reminds me of a castles moat! Fantastically designed. There is a new food outlet situated in the castle called The Queens kitchen which sells an assortment of food and treats.
Alot lot of new characters have now been introduced in to Peppa Pig World. There is Gerald Giraffe, Mr Bull, the characters on pirate island and The Queen and Peppa jumping in muddy puddles.
Also with in the new area is a dedicated baby care centre. This has several changing mats and cubicles for feeding babies. There are also toilets situated nearby.
Having checked out the new rides, which by the way are awesome. We decided to have some fun in the rest of Peppa pig world.
Peppa Pig World now has nine rides making it the perfect place for any Peppa Pig fan.
