Exciting world first water ride Tropical Cyclone has arrived.
Fresh from her triumph at the London Paralympic Games, Ellie commented, “Center Parcs Elveden Forest was where I first learnt to swim so it’s a really special place for me and my family. The new water ride is amazing and the drop really gets your pulse racing. I have lots of memories here at Center Parcs so it’s great to be part of the opening.”
The world-first Tropical Cyclone sees two award-winning water rides joined together for the very first time. Guests staying at Elveden Forest can experience a series of exciting twists, turns and drops in a four-person clover-shaped raft reaching speeds of up to 30mph. Take a look at our photo gallery and video for a first look at our new water ride.
In addition to our new water ride, a new child-friendly, family warm water Lagoon Pool also opens at Elveden Forest today. These exciting additions are part of a long-term investment into the Subtropical Swimming Paradise across all four Center Parcs villages.
