Six Flags Great Adventure announces revamp for Medusa

Published: October 23, 2008 at 9:51 PM

Six Flags Great Adventure's Medusa, the world's first floorless, looping coaster, will be the next to get a make-over.

Following the script of this spring's relaunch of X2 [link added - Editor] at Six Flags Magic Mountain, the Medusa redesign will add fog, fire and music elements to the ride. The new version of the ride will debut during the 2009 season.

"This redesign will take one of the park's most popular attractions to the next level," Mark Kane, Six Flags Great Adventure Park President said in a statement. "A similar transformation of the X2 coaster at Six Flags Magic Mountain in Los Angeles has received widespread acclaim and we expect the relaunch of this ride to shatter that response. It will be a must-ride experience."

I am really looking forward to this one. As Great Adventure is my home park, Medusa is something I have ridden each year for the past ten 9 or ten years now. In the last few years it became rather rough at times and even went as far as to end a few trips because of how bad it beat my head up during the ride. So I think it will be not only awesome to see what the park does in the thematic rehab on this ride, but also see what may happen with the trains and if it makes the ride more enjoyable from a physical aspect, and not just a sensory one.

I looked on the website, and it said nothing about them re-doing Medusa. I went to the national site, then SFGAdv's site, then to the medusa ride. Nothing on this...

Thanks, Robert.

Yet again, six flags was just trying to save money, like X2 and superman, at SFNE. I was very surprised when they announced Terminator at SFMM, just maybe they have a contract with GCI.
