If the trains are themed like NTAG and IRAT, I think it would be cool to see a Stone Medusa head or something on the front (should the Medusa theme continue). This will be an interesting project; can't wait to see the layout!

The funny thing is that Medusa wasn't 'terrible' in comparison to some others. Not that it was going to be in my top 10 or anything, but I think it could have been a good ride with some minor tweaking. I won't complain though if it turns out to be anything like New Texas Giant or Iron Rattler based on what others have said about them.

It’s official. Coming in 2014, Six Flags Mexico will introduce a brand new coaster experience, the first hybrid coaster of its kind in the country. Medusa will be transformed into the new innovative Medusa Steel Coaster, featuring a slick steel track atop a wooden base and this giant beast will feature impressive heights, astonishing speeds, stomach-tightening inversions, and an adrenaline rush like no other with its steep drop, extreme turns, and twisting inversions.

This technological innovation will combine the classic thrills of a wooden structure, with a new modern track and rails constructed out of steel, providing a ride that’s fiercer and smoother than ever before. Riders will elevate up to touch the sky atop the 98-foot lift hill. Then, you’ll whip over the peak and conquer the heart-racing plunge downward at an unbelievable 58 miles per hour. You’ll reach the bottom of this gut-wrenching slope before you even have time to scream.

You’ll then thunder around 3,000 feet of non-stop action, tackling surprising over-banked turns, sliding around dramatic curves, and twisting through outrageous inversions, flipping head-over-heels through a winding coil. Medusa Steel Coaster will feature two newly-themed trains topped with a mythic eye-catching Medusa head, which will run simultaneously to deliver continuous thrills and screams.

The renovated, first-of-its-kind roller coaster is set to debut in summer 2014. Are you ready to take on the rip-roaring Medusa Steel Coaster?

^Agreed. The layout looks so good. There is an insane amount of twisty airtime hops and drops all over the layout among the heavily banked turns and barrel rolls!
