Test your limits on Tropical Cyclone, a two- or three-person raft ride (also available at Woburn Forest and Elveden Forest) with added audio-visual themes to choose from or try Typhoon, a one or two-person ride with an exciting personalised lighting element to enhance the fast-paced drops and swings.

Minimising traffic on the village - Updated 28th March 2017
We know that our focus on providing a safe environment with minimal traffic is something you really value. That’s why we need your help to reduce the traffic on our villages to protect what you love about Center Parcs: a place where little ones can run free and explore, and parents can feel at ease.
STA Swim Pups - Updated 7th August 2017
Unique to Center Parcs, STA Swim Pups is a new water activity designed for little ones aged 3 months to 4 years. The activity involves a structured swimming programme for mini swimmers to gain essential swimming and movement skills in a fun and exciting environment, through a series of enjoyable and stimulating games. Your little ones can cycle around the pool on a float, canoe on a pool raft and take part in an aquatic nature trail. As recognition of their achievement, they will be awarded with an STA certificate to take home.
Available at Whinfell Forest and Sherwood Forest. Coming soon to Elveden Forest, Woburn Forest and Longleat Forest.
