“People often tell me the highlight of their family break at Center Parcs is time spent in the Subtropical Swimming Paradise and I get to spend my working day making sure everything is going swimmingly! From 10am to 9pm the huge pool area is swirling with activity; from the wave pool to the flumes and the wild water rapids to the scuba diving lessons – there’s so much to do!  And we’re set to make even bigger waves here at Center Parcs Elveden Forest this month as we open a new, unique family water ride; Tropical Cyclone. 

Over the past few months I have been lucky enough to see the ride take shape, from initial planning to testing the speed as the water was turned on! spinning round the whirlpool vortex and oscillating through the tornado funnel was a huge thrill! I’ve ridden a lot of water rides in my time but Tropical Cyclone is definitely a unique experience and I can’t wait to see families splashing down it for the first time!”

With the launch of the world first water ride later this month, Center Parcs wants to bring the element of ‘splash’ into your home, without too much mess! Let your family’s imagination run wild and work with them to paint a picture or build a model of their dream water ride. Take inspiration from Tropical Cyclone but show us what your own water ride would look like. We can’t wait to see which elements of Tropical Cyclone you use and the extra twists and turns you include too.

So get painting and sticking and show us the water ride your family would love to ride. When you’re done just send a tweet to @tots100 and @CenterParcsUK, linking to your blog post and include the hashtag #CPFamilyBreaks. This month’s challenge closes at 4pm on 30th November so make sure you get creative before then!  Enjoy the challenge.
