    'Scuse my ignorance, but what does "Switching off provided" mean? The footnote explaining is missing!

    I've ridden most of these rides myself, but can't work it out.

    It means Child Swap. One adult can stay with a child who isn't riding, then the other adult has their ride without waiting in the queue again.
