Set to open in Westfield Mall of the Netherlands in Leidschendam, on the outskirts of The Hague, Peppa Pig World of Play, Indoor Play Centre will offer children a unique opportunity to jump into the world of Peppa Pig for an unforgettable adventure. Families are invited to join Peppa and her friends in jumping, laughing and playing in instantly recognizable locations from the hugely popular animated series ‘Peppa Pig’.
To celebrate the occasion, six Peppa Pig fans from in and around Leidschendam were joined by famous mommy blogger Bobbi Eden, Bart van Twillert, Unibail-Rodamco-Westfield Director and Attraction Manager of the Indoor Play Centre Vincent Pronk, by donning yellow rain boots and making permanent ‘muddy’ boot prints in special cement stones at the site to celebrate the first steps leading to the opening.
Little ones will be fully immersed in the world of Peppa Pig as they explore over 12 free-roaming play areas to ignite their imagination and turn everyday activities into a wonderful adventure. Peppa Pig World of Play, Indoor Play Centre includes facilities for the entire family to relax and play: a themed Campervan Cafe and Picnic area, an independent retail store and, needless to say, plenty of muddy puddles to jump around in. The indoor play center spans over 1500 m² and offers around two hours of fun for children aged 1 to 6 years.
