Cleaners took to the inside of one of Longleat Forest’s new rides as finishing touches are applied

Workers at Center Parcs Longleat Forest had a huge task to complete as they embarked on the final cleaning of the village’s newest addition – the largest AV-enabled raft ride in Europe.

Armed with a multitude of different instruments to make sure they could reach spaces both high and low within the colossal cyclone – which will provide riders with a zero-gravity experience when the ride opens on 16th August – the ride cleaners had a difficult job on their hands.

The final polish took place ahead of the launch of two new innovative rides coming to Center Parcs Longleat Forest as part of the revamped Subtropical Swimming Paradise, which opens following the successful launch of Tropical Cyclone and other water play areas at Elveden Forest

The adrenaline-fuelled waterslide additions, named Tropical Cyclone and Typhoon, both feature light experiences, offering nature-inspired themes for the rider to select ahead of the experience.

Colin Whaley, Marketing Director at Center Parcs, said:

“We are always looking at ways to keep building on the great family experience we offer families and are very proud of the new features that will soon be opening at Longleat Forest’s Subtropical Swimming Paradise. We believe we have the best water experiences in the UK, across all of our five villages and we know, from what guests tell us, that what we have is special. We hope that these additions will thrill families and play a big part in their adventures whilst on a short break at Center Parcs.”

Tropical Cyclone

The colossalTropical Cyclone is the largest interactive two- or three-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 AV technology. Riders will be given the chance to choose from themes such as thunder, underwater, coral reef and waterfalls before heading into the exhilarating ride.

Lasting an unforgettable 45 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 don’t stop at the Tropical Cyclone, the new Typhoon also offers an exciting light experience which is sure to delight, with riders able to choose from one of five light experiences including treetops, seasons, Atlantis, rainbow and Aurora Borealis.

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 amazing visual experience which will make the Typhoon an unforgettable ride to try.
