I am going to Busch Gardens Williamsburg for the first time on Saturday. I will be a chaperon with a group of teens, but I am still young and want to have fun. I know nothing about this park. We will only be there Saturday, so what are the must see and do attractions, rides and shows?
Also, will the fact that I am plus size be a problem for the roller coasters?

Don't be afraid of being a plus size. The rides that may not fit for you have a seat that you can use to see if you can ride it. I have no "must see" suggestions because to be honest EVERYTHING there is a must see and do! Go, relax, have patience and have fun!

In no particular order:
Apollo's Chariot (any row)
Griffon (front row)
Alpengeist (front row)
Smokehouse
New show in Ireland (I'm guessing - I haven't seen it yet, but it replaces the best show ever.)
Have fun!
