    I went to Chessington park (so quite similar) just after the birth of my second son. I was at my heaviest of 15st 10, size 16/18 with a 38ff chest (thanks breastfeeding!!). I went on some of the big rides and fitted on no problem, they just squish 'em down!!

    If you are pointing ont he day i'd suggest going into a restaurant on site rather than eating at the fast food outlets. I think because Thorpe and Chessington are owned by the same people they will have similar food outlets, and we went into a pub/restaurant and had chicken kebabs, jacket potato and salad which were huge, filling, and didn't ruin the diet, instead of just grabbing a hot dog like we would do normally!

    Last time I was there they had a Pizza Hut (It's by the water rapids ride Thunder River?)~ if it's still called that lol). You could go for maybe a slice of pizza and loads of salad, or just salad!
    Stay AWAY from the hot donuts!!!!!
    Take some snacks with you, so you're not tempted by the goodies lol.
    The rides are quite big so I wouldn't worry to much! I don't go on the ones that fling you upside down I like Thundr River, the water log one and Mr Banana boat ride lol.
    I'm so glad now all I do is drive up to the entrance kick em out and wait to be recalled!
    It's great now they're 16 lol.
    Have fun, be good if you can't be good be careful, but above all have a fab time!
    Oh and the boat ride to the farm! lol
