This summer, Center Parcs is launching two new innovative rides as part of Longleat Forest’s revamped Subtropical Swimming Paradise.
The highly-anticipated adrenaline-fuelled waterslide additions, named Tropical Cyclone and Typhoon, both feature thrilling light and sound experiences, offering immersive nature-inspired themes for the rider to select ahead of a truly bespoke experience.
The colossal Tropical Cyclone is the largest interactive four-person raft ride in Europe. The unique ride features a cyclone with a spectacular diameter of 15 metres, which is the perfect canvas for the projections, lights and sounds displayed from the innovative AV technology. Riders will be given the chance to choose from themes such as the forest, nature, jungles and waterfalls before heading into the exhilarating ride.
Lasting an unforgettable 45-60 seconds and boasting a top speed of 40km/h, the ride offers 142 metres of twists, turns and sways with the giant cone drop tipping riders at an angle that gives riders a zero-gravity experience for a second before propelling them down the tube to a splash pool.
Thrills and spills don’t stop at the Tropical Cyclone, the Typhoon also offers an exciting light and sound experience which is sure to delight.
A single or two-person ride, Typhoon whips riders through tubes and cones for up to a minute of drops and swings, reaching a top speed of 40km/h along its 140-metre length – giving the rider a truly multi-sensory experience which will make the Typhoon an unforgettable ride to try.
Venture Bay and Venture Harbour
There are also two new areas included in the Subtropical Swimming Paradise revamp – a family water play area and a toddler pool. These new areas will see families whizzing down brightly lit tubes, spraying each other with spouts and having fun in the water from the hidden giant tipping buckets, amongst much, much more.
The Subtropical Swimming Paradise is the most popular place at all Center Parcs villages for families to spend a day of their break, with more than 90% of guests visiting the water wonderland to enjoy slides, a wave pool, Wild Water Rapids and toddler water play areas.
