Earlier this year, Universal announced the launch of the new Universal Kids theme park in my neck of the woods in Frisco, Texas. Now, another theme park geared to kids is opening in North Texas soon!
Peppa Pig Theme Park
A new Peppa Pig Theme Park will be opening later in 2023 in North Richland Hills, Texas. The park, which is owned by Merlin Entertainment, will be situated on 14 acres next to the family waterpark NRH20. Merlin also runs the nearby Legoland Discovery Center and Sea Life Aquarium in Grapevine.
This will be the 2nd Peppa Pig Theme Park in North America. The first location, adjacent to Legoland Florida Resort, has a handful of rides and play areas. See this article for more information.
In the next few years, Dallas is going to be a hot travel spot for families with young children! In addition to the new Universal Kids and Peppa Pig theme parks, the DFW area already has a Great Wolf Lodge, Legoland Discovery Center, Sea Life Aquarium, NRH20, Epic Waters, Dallas World Aquarium and two decent zoos.
My kids are a bit too old to enjoy these upcoming theme parks. But, maybe our grandkids will enjoy them someday.
Are you excited about this new Peppa Pig Theme Park?
PS–Disney, when are you coming to North Texas?
How does my family travel so much? We use miles and points from credit card bonuses. See my Travel Hacking 101 post as well as current credit card offers here.
Nancy lives near Dallas, Texas, with her husband and three kids. Her favorite vacations include the beach, cruising and everything Disney.
Actually, 2 decent zoos is a very sad statement. We have 1 decent zoo and the other is an amazing, world class zoo.
@nagyfunds Which zoo is your favorite?
What DFW needs is more resorts and preferably kid friendly ones. Great Wolf Lodge is gross, my assistant got a yeast infection from taking her kids there. Gaylord is old with crap rooms but we have no choice but to go there. The former Four Seasons Las Colinas was nice, but now new management sucks. Sapphire Bay’s supposed Hyatt resort probably will never happen. The Drover has cool bunk beds for kids but the place itself is tiny.
@Hal I agree! I think a Disney hotel would do well here.
I know what our mother-daughter trip will be next year!
