Do the large coasters have test seats or is there any posted maximum weight/size resrictions? I'm concerned about my size and fitting into the seats. Any larger people been here and have any problems?

I haven't been to this particular park but other SF parks tend to have a seat out front by the que line to see if you fit before getting in line. Someone who's familiar w/this park can tell you for sure but generally they do. B&M coasters usually have larger seats. Medusa, you shouldn't have trouble on Medusa. Superman UF might have a weight limit, I don't know since I've never ridden a flying coaster. Nitro I think has a lap restraint like Apollos Chariot from what I've heard. I don't know about the others. I'm sorry I couldn't help more. You might wanna just call the park & find out. Someone who wks in the office, I'm sure, will be happy to let you know.

El toro might be a problem as well as chiller. Everything has a test seat beside chiller

Today on El Toro they were giving out a flyer stating that very tall or larger people might not be able to fit on the ride and that even if you wait in line they can turn you away. There is a test seat at the entrance though. Superman has a test seat, I believe most of the coasters do and as another poster said chiller does not.
