I second that motion!
Still confused about why vekomas headquarters hasn't been burnt down by an angry mob of enthusiasts

Beware of the freeze-dried donkey!

^^Aw nice! I guess you were right in your Medusa POV when you said it needs some Rocky Mountain treatment.
Coaster Count: 10 wood - 46 steel

Since we were so blown away by Medusa today, and since I took hundreds of photos at Six Flags Mexico which is a lot of sort through, I decided for this update I'd just post some photos of Medusa! Enjoy! =) :airtime: :airtimer: :airtime:
medusa1.jpg
Climbing the lift hill you see this...you really don't have an idea of what's about to come next!
medusa_Rpov1.jpg
I love these reverse POV shots!
medusa_Rpov2.jpg
This reverse POV shot gives you an idea of the layout.
medusa_pov1.jpg
Coming up... AIRTIME!!!
medusa_pov2.jpg
Medusa serves up a perfect mix of twistyness, inversions, and airtime.
medusa_pov3.jpg
Everything about this ride seems perfectly paced.
medusa_pov4.jpg
It's just beautiful. I mean, look at that!
medusa_pov5.jpg
And the airtime is UNREAL!
medusa_pov_0.JPG
I *love* this shot of the first drop...and the drop is amazing! Would love to see this included in more RMC rides in the future!
medusa_rider1.jpg
This photo pretty much sums up our thoughts on the ride!
medusa_rider2.jpg
Oh, and Medusa does this to your hair!
medusa_rider3.jpg
The ride is just relentless! And oddly enough, with they nylon wheels on the train, it *feels* a lot more like a wood coaster than the RMC conversion projects in Texas do. I know it's consider a steel coaster (as it should be), but it has a different feel to it, and I like that.

Backseat POV!!!
medusa_Bpov2.jpg
This ride is worth a trip to Mexico for!
medusa_off10.jpg
It was hard to get good off-ride shots because it's just so damn fast!
medusa_off2.jpg
Looks like some happy faces!
medusa_off3.jpg
Airtime...
medusa_off4.jpg
airtime...
medusa_off5.jpg
and MORE airtme!
medusa_off6.jpg
This drop is just sick!
medusa_off7.jpg
Everyone LOVES Medusa!!!
medusa_off8.jpg
Check out that hairtime in the middle of the train!
medusa_off9.jpg
Seriously just an all-around KICK-ASS coaster! Blew us all away! You need to get to Six Flags Mexico to ride it!

It's amazing how much more Alan Schilke was able to do with less height, less speed, and less length. It's also amazing how the ride (from the video's I've seen) never loses the crazy pacing up until the breaks. This makes me much more excited for WC and TC! One day I will get to Mexico to ride Medusa.

95% of wooden roller coasters need some Rocky Mountain treatment!
