What are the Wild Water Rapids?
For the thrill-seekers and strong swimmers in the family, the rapids are a great part of any break at Center Parcs. Feel the current of the wild river take you along a thrilling series of dips and dives, as you journey through the outside of the pool and back into the comfort of calmer waters.
