Parent Swap

Do Alton Towers have the facility to parent swap? Coming with children aged 6 and 3 but with no other adult so not sure if i've made a mistake in booking! !

Your two wont be big enough for the majority of the rides, do you mean you want someone to look after them while you go on the rides? Anyone offering to do this would need a CRB check, not something Alton Towers would want ot be involved in I would have thought.

I'm not quite sure what it is either, but the answer appears to be yes:

Is parent swap not where one parent goes on a ride while the other waits with the kids then they swap over without the second parent having to join the back of the queue again? If so, I can't see how this is an option if you're going on your own with 2 kids??
