Meeting the Queen at Peppa Pig World

We have been visiting Paultons Park since it first open in the 1980’s and its safe to say that it has changed quite a lot along the way.

In April 2011 Peppa Pig World was launched, which was perfect timing for my Peppa loving son Isaac who was 3 at the time and we have been big fans ever since.

Walking into Peppa Pig World is like walking straight into the animated series, complete with the infamous and annoyingly catchy theme tune, characters everywhere you look and rides based on some of the kids favourite episodes.

Peppa Pig’s popularity continues to grow and there have been many more episodes created since 2011, so this year, Paultons Park have extended Peppa Pig World to include two new rides and more of our favourite characters.

What can be found in the new area of Peppa Pig World?

There are two new fun rides:

The Queen’s Flying Coach Ride

A monorail that travels around the new area offering fantastic views over the whole of Peppa Pig World.

Grampy Rabbit’s Sailing  Club

Individual boats meander along a lazy river to discover Pirate Island.

Queen’s Castle

Standing 10 metres tall, its is a real focal point of the new area and houses the Queen’s Kitchen, a new catering outlet.

New Characters

The great thing about Peppa Pig is that they continue to introduce new characters and Peppa Pig World have done the same. See Mr Bull digging up the road to repair a burst water main.

The kids loved spotting the new characters and the new rides were a hit too. The views from the Queen’s Flying Coach ride over the park were simply stunning.

Views over Peppa Pig World

Peppa Pig World is aimed at children aged 0-5 as all the rides have been designed for little ones to be able to ride with their parents.

George's Dinosaur Ride

For those of you with older children too, the Lost Kingdom is a firm favourite with Isaac (now 10) and Eliza (7) as it has some slightly more thrilling rides aimed at children over 1m and the chance to meet Max, their friendly T-Rex.

Max T-Rex

This was the first year that Sebby has been over 1m and he absolutely loved riding the bigger rollercoasters, Flight of the Pterosaur and Velociraptor.

If you visit Paultons Park, don’t forget to visit the rest of the park as it has so much to offer all the family. The gardens are beautifully manicured, with birds and animals to see as you wander through.

There are plenty of rides throughout the park, with Cobra, Edge and Magma for the teens to brave. If visiting in the summer, don’t forget your swimming costumes and towels for the splash park and to dry off after the log flume.

Magma

Also new for this year is Little Africa which houses a number of animals native to the continent, including fennec fox, African crested porcupines, meerkats, Savannah monitor lizards and giant train millipedes, as well as one of the largest rodents in Africa, the Gambian pouched rat, and also the smallest, the African pygmy mouse.

Meerkat

The kids loved spotting the animals, particularly the ones in the dark house, who were actively scampering around their enclosures.

Behind Little Africa is the Water Mill which was built around 1860 and it is one of the few remaining working Poncelet Breast-Shot wheels in the UK. With there being so much water nearby we were also treated to 11 cute ducklings following Mum to the lake as we went to explore.

Ducklings

The Water Mill has been lovingly restored by the park and is now open to the public, with the display demonstrating how it works so you can actually see the whole machine in action.

Paultons Park offers a full day out for all the family and is one of our favourite theme parks for younger children. The facilities are well thought out and plentiful and the food is reasonably priced too.

Have you been to Paulton’s Park – what was your favourite thing to see?
