New indoor playground brings popular animation series to life in Leidschendam
The very first Peppa Pig World of Play indoor playground in Europe will soon open its doors in the Westfield Mall of the Netherlands in Leidschendam, on the outskirts of The Hague. Peppa Pig World of Play is a new indoor playground that takes toddlers, preschoolers and their families into the magical world of Peppa Pig. Young children discover the adventurous world of Peppa in more than 12 different play zones, all based on the well-known themes of this worldwide popular children’s brand.
To celebrate, six Peppa Pig fans from the area, along with Peppa Pig, attraction manager Vincent Pronk, mommy Bobbi Eden and Unibail-Rodamco-Westfield Director Bart van Twillert donned the iconic yellow wellies and together the symbolic first muddy footsteps were made in the run-up to the opening. The moment also marks the start of construction of the indoor playground.
Peppa Pig World of Play indoor playground has all the facilities to play and relax. There is a themed food truck for snacks and drinks, a picnic area with seats, a Peppa Pig shop and – of course – mud pools to jump in. The indoor playground is 1,500 m² and offers two hours of fun for children aged 1 to 8 years. Peppa Pig World of Play is operated by global leisure giant Merlin Entertainments Limited (Merlin) under a license from Hasbro. Peppa Pig World of Play indoor playground Leidschendam is the fifth in the world. For more information visit: peppapigworldofplay.com/leidschendam
