EUROPE'S first standalone Peppa Pig theme park has been announced – and it's opening next year.

Last year, a Peppa Pig Theme Park opened in Orlando as part of the Legoland Florida Resort.

Due to its success, another theme park based on the famous kid's character is opening in Germany.

Unlike other Peppa Pig attractions, which are often contained inside larger theme parks, this one will be standalone.

This means it'll be separate from other nearby theme parks- the perfect place for young parkgoers who are obsessed with the beloved character.

The park will be set in Günzburg in Bavaria and will sit right next to the Legoland Deutschland Resort.

The new theme park will have a number of rides, attractions, themed playscapes, and shows.

Kids will also get to meet all of their favourite characters throughout the park too.

The huge new theme park marks another joint venture for entertainment company Merlin Entertainments, and toys and games company Hasbro.

Manuela Stone, who is the divisional Director of Legoland Deutschland, said: "The park is conceived and designed around the needs and abilities of preschool children.

"With the opening, we are thus also offering the young target group their own rides and the opportunity to get to know the world of family theme parks step by step."

While the boss of Merlin Entertainments, Scott O'Neil, added: "We are inspired to bring the magic of Peppa Pig to Günzburg, which will be our first Peppa Pig Park within mainland Europe.

"Located at Legoland Deutschland Resort, the new theme park will be perfect for families visiting the popular resort and will expand our entertainment offerings across Germany."

It hopes to open in 2024, although official dates and ticket prices are yet to be announced.

The UK also has its very own Peppa Pig World at Paulton's Park.

There guests will find Grampy Rabbit's Sailing Club, The Queen's Flying Coach, Grandpa Pig's Little Train, and Peppa's Big Balloon in the Peppa Pig World.

Kids can also enjoy play areas, as well as meet and greets with Peppa Pig and George Pig.

Peppa Pig World isn't the only attraction at Paultons Park, as there's also Tornado Spring, a world set in a midwest desert resort town in the 1950s.
