Paultons Park in Hampshire, England is running a competition for the chance to attend the grand opening of Peppa Pig World in April 2011.

The park is giving away a limited number of "Golden Tickets" for the exclusive opening event, which will take place on April 2, 2011 - a week ahead of the public opening of the new land on April 9. The competition is aimed at children, who can enter via the official Peppa Pig World website.

Peppa Pig World will feature child-friendly attractions themed around characters from the hugely successful Peppa Pig television show. The park claims to have secured an exclusive license with owners E1 Entertainment, meaning that it will be the only theme park in the UK and Ireland to host a Peppa Pig land.

The 7 rides in Peppa Pig World will be themed versions of established "kiddie" attractions, including the Peppa Pig family car, Miss Rabbit’s helicopter, Grandpa Pig’s train, George’s dinosaur, a Balloon ride, Danny Dog’s car, George’s boat and a ride in the "clouds" around Windy Castle. Kids will also be able to splash in muddy puddles and take a tour of Peppa Pig's house.

The deal to license the Peppa Pig characters is something of a coup for Paultons Park, with the show having proved a smash hit in the UK since its 2004 debut. Sales of merchandise based on the series reached £100m in the UK last year, and it has now been shown in 180 countries worldwide.

The Peppa Pig cartoons revolve around the life of the eponymous pig, as well as her family and friends. Aimed at pre-schoolers but popular with many parents for its humorous elements, it has sold over 3 million DVDs in the UK to date.
