Subtropical Swimming Paradise
At the heart of every Center Parcs break, is our incredible water park, the Subtropical Swimming Paradise, heated to 29.5C all year round and decked in lush green tropical plants and trees, it’s positively balmy.
Access to the Subtropical Swimming Paradise during your break is through a pre-booking system only so be sure to pre-book and secure your place to take a dip in the pool, tackle the Wild Water Rapids, relax in our whirlpools and enjoy our exhilarating rides and slides.
You can pre-book your session from 12 weeks before you arrive.
Our rides and slides
The Subtropical Swimming Paradise is the home of thrilling water rides and slides, from our gravity-defying Tropical Cyclone (open from 11am to 7pm) to our family favourite Wild Water Rapids. Rides and slides vary at each village but you're guaranteed twists, turns and drops on each one.
Children's water play areas
Let your little ones dip their toes in our water play areas with little slides, spray fountains and a splashing pool for the little ones and for older children a family water play area with fun slides, giant tipping buckets and more if they're a little more confident in the water.
