Newsplash: A World First for Center Parcs!
Center Parcs is set to make even bigger waves this year as a new, unique family water ride takes shape at Elveden Forest. This will be the first of its kind to be created anywhere in the world, costing approximately £4m to build.
A sneak preview of this exciting ride will be revealed at http://www.centerparcs.co.uk/newsplash on Wednesday 30th May. Further details, visuals and tasters will be announced on Tuesday 3rd July to mark Center Parcs’ official 25th birthday. Watch this space...
The water ride, which is due to open in late November 2012 is part of a longer term investment programme in the swimming pools across all four Center Parcs UK villages.
