Rides and slides

Every Subtropical Swimming Paradise features rides and flumes suitable for all ages. At Woburn, Elveden and Longleat Forest you’ll find Tropical Cyclone, a two or three-person raft ride with a gravity-defying drop. There’s also Typhoon, a two-seater ride with drops, swings and speeds of up to 45km/ph. At Whinfell Forest you’ll find Canyon Ride, while Sherwood Forest is home to Grand Cascade, both are exciting family water rides.

Wild Water Rapids

For thrill-seekers and strong swimmers, the rapids are a great part of any Center Parcs break. Feel the current of the wild river take you along a thrilling series of dips and dives, as you journey through the outside of the pool and back into the comfort of calmer waters. It’s not for the faint-hearted, but we guarantee it’s great fun that you’ll want to try again and again!
