Six Flags Mexico (SFM) Discussion Thread

Postby zburns999 » Sat Oct 08, 2005 6:19 pm

Hey everybody!

This thread is simple! Rather than having a million little threads about everything that goes on at Six Flags Mexico, this thread is designed to consolidate it all into one user-friendly thread. Feel free to use it to post updates, trip reports, questions, comments, and of course, general discussion. For pictures and videos of the park as well as past updates, see TPR's Park Index Page.

I was talking to a friend who used to live in mexico city and visited Six Flags Mexico many times. That reminded me of that totally forgotten hyper coaster which was new for this year (I think). Is it any good? I haven't heard of anyone who has actually ridden this.

Yea it does look awesome. Even though I know alot of people have put Morgan on the bottom of the list as a builder of hypers, I've liked what i've ridden. That includes Steel Force, Mamba, Phantom's Revenge and one not so hyper Quicksilver Express (which I also really enjoyed).

Personally I can't wait to ride next July when i'll be down there!

I talked to a couple people who have ridden Ultimo Escapo and they said the mid-course brake run was on hard - meaning the train almost stops. This was opening weekend. They also said Six Flags Mexico was toying with the idea of turnning off the trim.

Lets hope.

SFM is home to what I consider to be one of the greatest CCI layouts ever. Medusa looks friggin awesome...if only they ran PTC's and not those G-Trains.

But still, if it is maintained well, it could be an insane ride. Layout is very, very cool.

I was always impressed with the looks of Medusa, unfortunately I've heard from a few people who've ridden it that it's nearly unrideable and not being kept up at all.

I figure we'll get there eventually but there are a bunch of places I think I'd rather go first. I wish the parks were on the coast so I could hit them on a cruise!

^That sucks and that doesnt suprise me. However, it does look VERY intense. I had (may still have) a POV of it and it felt like it pummeled the camera man holding it. It just looks like a very classic example of CCI engineering something thats far too intense to be kept up at a chain park.

Shoot, it has two crazy nearly unbanked fan turns which Im sure tear you up along with some low, fast turns that I bet need lots of care.


Sucks. It looks so good too.

Mexico's Medusa was nearly unrideable. However, it recently went under extensive work (including a complete rebuild of the Gerstlauer trains). How it's running after all that, I don't know...

Stumbled across this rare POV, love the pre-lift bunny hops, rest doesn't look too shabbly at all either:

Which is something Ive never quite understood, I loved Mamba!

I was looking at pics of this coaster on RCDB and I was wondering about the layout.... it looks pretty sweet!

Its too bad they had the MCBR on so hard though (from waht you guys have said), I remember that completely ruining the second half of Mamba.
