UK leisure retreat group Center Parcs has announced plans to build a new £4m (US$6.2m) water ride at its Elveden Forest park in Suffolk.

Inspired by some of the world’s greatest forces of nature, Tropical Cyclone is to replicate the experience of rafting along three rivers – South Africa’s Zambezi river, Japan’s Naruto Whirlpools and the Iguazu Falls in South America.

ProSlide Technology, SDC and Water Technology are working alongside Center Parcs on the creation of Tropical Cyclone, which is due to open to guests in November.
