Center Parcs... Need Help!

13
Found 5th Jun 2008
There's a group of us planning to go away in July, we looked on Center Parcs at the late deals and found one that was perfect.

I went to book it and at the last page there's a box you have to check to say you're 21. I rang up and they said one of you on the trip has to be 21 to go there. I'm the oldest of the group and i'm short of 21 by 3 months!! Pathetic... I flew to Italy and could stay in a hotel with my gf when we were 18 but we can't go to Center Parcs!

Anyway... we need to find something similar to this. I've been looking a bit at Sunparks in Belgium but I think it's a bit too far. Want something in the UK really!

Any ideas anyone? Want something in a similar price range, it was only £350 for four nights (4 of us going)

Well yeah that's another option really, I'm not sure if they would check. Does anyone know?
I'm not saying that you should ignore their terms & conditions but are they really going to check ? As long as you don't cause any trouble while you're there why would they even bother ?
cant rmbr them checking when we went......
They might only check when they don't think you are 21 though, like i.d'ing.

I'll wait to see what a few people say from past experience.
I wasn't I.D in any way shape or form when I went. On the other hand I'm clearly over 21!!! when we went though some of our party clearly weren't and none of them were I.Ded. MAke yerself a year older than you are when they ask at the point of booking. You'll be fine just don't cause trouble or draw undue attention to yourself and give them cause to Id you

Yeah, that could work. Did you need to take any I.d with you or anything or just fill out forms?

It's only one of the group who has to be 21 by the way.

Booked online added all details to their online registering site didn't have to sign or fill out any hard copy.

i know it only has to be one of you but when your wandering round the park how would they know what over 21 you were with?

They wouldn' t :-D

What did you do to register when you got there then? Just gave your name?
Just change your d.o.b by a year, they dont ask for I.D.

Just in case, dont change the ID of the driver, and then whoever it is can say they dont have ID on them.
Hmmm just been browsing and it seems they are strict and wouldn't let a group with the majority between 16 and 21 stay anyway!

Looking for another option but similar sort of thing!
