We went to Center Parcs for a special treat. Mummy and Daddy were very nice for giving us such a special treat. It cost a lot of money...
When we got to Center Parcs the first thing we did is go straight to the sub tropical swimming paradise. We were all very excited... We went into the upstairs pool but I call it the practise pool because lots of people practise there. It’s always very busy there. At Center Parcs you are not allowed to dive.
There is a secret pool that is a pool that very few know it’s there. The only part you see of it are the stairs. But I know it very well. Me and my brother S__ like to play a game called “Swim away from Dad”. The game is where Dad is the shark and Me and S__ are the little fish. There are little seats around the pool and they are what me and S__ call den. The aim of the game is that Me and S__ swim from den to den trying not to get caught by Dad. If you are quick enough you can get away.
There are four slides at Center Parcs and they are all fast!! The first one is called the Slide it’s a very fast slide were you go straight down and at the end you make a big splash!!! When you go on the slide it makes you feel like you are going on a roller coaster ride!!! On the slide there is water coming down so you go extra fast!! The slide is no ordinary slide it’s two slides stuck together so two people can go at the same time.
The next slide is called The Flume. When I go on The Flume I lie on my back. At the end of the ride I scream!!!! The Flume is the fastest slide. The flume is two tube slides side by like a long ride when you go on the flume it feels fast and it also feels like a long ride when it’s not. Like the Slide it’s got two slides so two people can go at once. The green flume slide is very bright and is never too dark. It’s the fastest flume slide . The purple flume slide is the dark and you think you are going faster than the green slide when you are not. At the end you make a big splash!!!
The third slide is called Canyon Ride because it’s a big slide. At the end of the slide its 1.2 meters deep that at the end of the slide you feel as if you are going to drown when you do not. When you go into the Canyon Ride it starts of as a tube and then it goes out into the open and at the end you end up in an outside pool!
The last slide is called the mini slide. It might not look like a fast slide when it is. Like all of the other slides at the end you make a big splash at the end of the ride. The mini slide is a short version of the slide but it’s not a double slide. When I go on the mini slide I go on my back!!
When you go into the sub tropical swimming paradise the first pool you will see is the big main pool. The main pool is the biggest pool of them all the most people go in the main pool because it’s the biggest and there is a lot of room for everyone!!!! Usually you see a lot of people there.
In the main pool there are sometimes waves. When the waves are on everyone goes bobbing up and down. When I went to Center Parcs I couldn’t swim very well so when the waves were on I had to stay in the shallow end. “You could drown!” my mum and dad said to me every time the waves are on. When the waves are on I am not allowed to go too deep.
A rapid is fast moving water in a circle shape. There are 2 rapids at Center Parcs one is fast and one is slow the fast one has boosters and makes you go very fast so fast that you go under the water. After the third booster you go under water. At the end there are currents that you get sucked in and you are forced to go on the rapid again. The slow rapid dose not have boosters but that rapid is in a cave. It goes in an arch shape and when you go inside it’s a bit dark. I really like the rapids. They’re just so fast and exciting and excellent.
The Spa is a hot pool that you sit and you get all cosy and warm. You are not allowed to play in the spa pool because you might disturb the children and grownups who are relaxing in the spa pool.
The baby pool has slides like the flume and the slide just smaller. The baby pool is another small pool and I’m not allowed to go in the pool. The baby pool is for aged 4 or under that age. It has another small baby pool at the top where the start of the slides are so you can go down.
When you have finished having a good swim you go back out into the Village Center (that is where the sub tropical swimming paradise is). There is a mini rainforest that has Tropical trees and it has a cave that has water going down like a waterfall. The cave has a toilet in. There are rain forest plants and there is a stream with loads of mini waterfalls .The stream has no fish in it. There’s loads to look at in Center Parcs
At Center Parcs there is a house called a lodge. A lodge is a type of house were you stay in when you are at Center Parcs and it has beds, a kitchen, a table, washing machine all the types of things you would find in a house. Lodges are made out of wood. Center Parcs is a big place.
