The Staffordshire theme park will offer entrants wrist bands containing tiny Radio Frequency Identification chips.
Guests would be watched as they use the park and will be filmed on rides, which the creators say would also cut crime.
At the end of the day they would then be given the option to buy the footage in a personalised DVD.
Alton Towers said work is still being carried out on its system but it could be available next year.
Experts at Venue Solutions, the firm behind the project, say the tags can also be used to track lost children and cut crime such as break-ins and vandalism.
The system called Your Day could also be introduced to Busch Gardens in Florida, and Disneyland Paris.
Al Page, from Your Day, said: "It will involve cameras being strategically placed along the paths of rides and at prime photo-opportunity locations.
"The cameras will be used to track and video park visitors while they experience the park's attractions."
But Liz Greenwood, from Alton Towers, said the security aspect was secondary as the wristbands would not be compulsory.
"If people don't want to take part that is their choice," she said.
"Only the people who opt into the scheme will be filmed so if a child is lost, for instance, the system will only track the child if his/her parents have opted in."
