How To Use the Parent Swap Pass at Chessington?

Simply pick up a parent swap pass from Adventure Services in Market Square.  Parent 1 will need to join the main queue for each thrill ride whilst Parent 2 & younger child(ren) enjoy the park. As the first parent accesses the ride ensure the parent swap pass is authorised by the ride attendant, (you will be given an expiry time in which to use the ride pass that is often around the 30 minute mark).

Parent 2 can then access the ride via the fastrack entrance/ride exit, presenting your authorised parent swap pass to the ride attendants, who will load you onto the ride at the earliest possible opportunity.  A maximum of 2 guests, (parent & child), can make use of this pass that means both parents have a chance to enjoy the rides and the child picks up 2 rides whilst only queuing for 1!

    Hi, can you please let me know how I apply for a parent swap pass. We are visiting on Sunday.
    Many thanks

    • Hi Jolene, you can only pick a parent swap pass up on the day of your visit and cannot book in advance. Simply head over to Adventure Services, (guest services) in Market Square to pick up your pass.
