I am sooooooo excited about the latest Center Parcs competition over on Tots100. Anyone who read my review of our holiday there last year will know that I am a huge fan and would love to go back again.
Center Parcs have recently launched a fantastic new water slide at Elveden Forest and to celebrate ‘Tropical Cyclone‘ and also their 25 year anniversary, they are asking us to put on our thinking caps and come up with what we think would be our perfect water slide.
We put our heads together as a family and came up with what we think would be a pretty cool water feature. I give you…… ‘Treefall!’
We wanted this water feature to represent everything that we love about Center Parcs. You start your ride in the entry pool where you board your family dinghy which is actually designed to look just like a bird’s nest. The pool currents take you around the pool and into a lift area where your dingy is transported skywards using a technique similar to that you would see in a canal boat lock system. You are transported higher and higher up into the giant redwood tree passing some treetop creatures along the way!
When you arrive at your destination (an amazing treetop house), you choose which of the three slides you wish to go down by grabbing the ropes at the entrance to the slide and pulling yourself over the edge and into a super cool exhilarating ride. The slides each look like a tree branch from the outside so for anyone that has read ‘The Faraway Tree’ this will be just like the ‘slippery slip’!
When your ride is almost finished you will fly through some reed beds and finally, enter an underground cave where you can either depart the ride OR if you’re feeling brave, get right back on again!
