give the kid a dummy and put it in a pram
#2
Are you serious?
#3
Do they really need to know her age your probably get away with it for another year or so.
#4
My kids' ages (& their heights) varied, depending on which theme park we were visiting & which rides we were trying to get on:whistling:
#5
I just asked this because under 4 free in altontower.we attended the Gulivers park there they measure height and my child couldnt cross the barrier (although he was under 3)so we have to purchase a full ticket for him .Same in this case if they have such criteria then i will purchase his tickets from lastminute .com so we can save £ 7 there.
#6
If the park has a age limit height should not come into it for entry.
#7
Take a pushchair with you and keep your child in it till you get past entry and they won't likely charge.
Last yr when we went to Chessington on Clubcard deals,we going for 2days and I had 8 entry tickets there its free entry under 1 meter.My daughter was 4 in the March but she small and it was touch or go depending on floor level. Some heights charts we measured her up was at 1 meter and some was just under. I had a entry tickets for her for 2 days but when I went to counter I just handed over 3 and then shown the 3 tickets at the other gate and no1 said a thing. I sold the her 2 on eBay and got back a bit more than they worth instore.
Personally If your going be paying on the day you might aswell try and get away with it.

Also if Altons Towers is anything similar to Chessington,you will find there are many rides your 4 yr old won't get on. My 7yr old last yr didn't get on everything in Chessington and there was even more the 4yr old not get on which he could get on.
I don't go out of town without a pushchair as I don't expect my daughter to walk all day as she gets tired more so than my son did and likes a nap and she was 5 other wk,so I def take a chance,take the pushchair and I think you should be ok.Stick a blanket on too,my daughter will want a blanket on even if its really hot if she wanting sleep.

Alton Towers criteria is age only. Once they reach their 4th birthday, they pay.

DO NOT commit fraud like suggested above, it would be silly to end up in Holloway prison for the sake of a few £'s. :)

The only problem is if they start asking you to prove age.

trust me, if you say they are 4...they believe u. They dont ask for proof and its not a height criteria. When I bought my tickets from Alton towers I was given a ticket for my daughter even though she was under 4....just so she could get through the turn stiles. However I know plenty of people who say there 6 year old is under 4 and theyve never been asked to prove it. How could you prove it anyway...."oh yes, Mr Alton Towers representative hang on whilst I get out my childs birth certificate..lucky I always have it in my bag!!!"


lol

Not likely manay people will carry round their passports/birth certs anyway with amount of pickpocketing going on,specially in Theme parks all them ques,very easily for wallets and such to be gone!

It was a joke. :whistling:

If what I say drives you to follow me around being disgusted, put me on "Ignore", navigating the forums will be less upsetting for you. :)

Just watch your child doesn't land you in it.

We were going on the train today and I told her she didn't need a ticket as she was free, and she said "she was not free, she was four!!!"

lmao
