Breakfast like a king

After a well-deserved lie in, get off to the right start with breakfast at Café Rouge. Treat dad to Le Grand Plat, with two free range eggs, two sausages, bacon, black pudding, beans, mushroom, tomato, hash brown and sourdough toast. There’s no better way to start the day!

Dive right in

Head to the Subtropical Swimming Paradise and wallow away the time in our wave pool, tackle the Wild Water Rapids, make a splash in the water play areas or relax in our whirlpools. Why not surprise your deserving dad by booking a private family cabana in advance, so he can put his feet up and relax in style on the comfy seats with complimentary soft drinks and your own TV?

A sugar rush

After hours of splashing good fun in the Subtropical Swimming Paradise, dad can refuel and refresh at The Pancake House. Delight his sweet tooth with a Banoffee Stack – layered with banana and topped with whipped cream, banana, toffee and chocolate sauce and crushed Flake.

An action packed afternoon

The whole family could compete at Laser Combat, tackle the Aerial Adventure or watch your little ones behind the wheel of a mini 4×4 in Off-Road Explorers. If you really fancy a bit of family competition then try nine holes of Adventure Golf, navigate the obstacles, avoid the pitfalls and see who can achieve family bragging rights with an almost-impossible hole in one.

Catch the football

You needn’t miss any of the games, with Sports Café showing the lot on the big screens. It’s the ideal place for the whole family to relax for a couple of hours; enjoy a snack, get refreshed after your activities and watch a game – little ones will love the indoor play area too. There’s back-to-back action that day with Costa Rica v Serbia at 1pm, Germany v Mexico at 4pm and Brazil v Switzerland at 7pm.

Finish with a feast

Transport dad to the Deep South and book a table at Huck’s American Bar and Grill. He can gorge on Californian flavours like our prawn tostadas, smoky New Orleans-style ribs or a steak cooked just like they do in Texas, yum.

Last minute gifts

Don’t worry if you’ve forgotten to pick up a little something for dad to open on the big day – we’ve got you covered. There are great gifts in Time For Shade, with sunglasses and watches from big brands such as Oakley, Ray-Ban, and Henry London. If he’s got a sweet tooth, then head to Treats for some handmade fudge or retro sweets.

As Marketing Manager at Center Parcs, I’m lucky enough to hear all the amazing stories that come from our guests and the insider knowledge from our villages. As a dad of two myself (age six and three) I'm a regular Center Parcs guest - we love the family time we get together when visiting. I'll share everything I know with you here.
