Medusa at Six Flags Discovery Kingdom
Medusa is a floorless coaster at Six Flags Discovery Kingdom.
The ride starts with a quick trip up the 150 foot lift hill where you get a nice view of what you are about to experience before you dive down the drop. A vertical loop happens to be the first inversion, up and around you go then into the dive loop. Dive loops are always fun, and Medusa’s is no exception. A zero-g-roll is the next treat in store for you, this is one of the ride’s more intense elements, although it is quickly forgotten because the deadly Sea Serpent (roll over) double inversion is next. This is a lot like the roll over on Rock ‘n’ Roller Coaster at Disney’s Hollywood Studios except that the Sea Serpent has less of a roll in the middle and more of a corkscrew. A short incline leads to a mid-course brake run. The train dives around a turn into a corkscrew and then a small helix. A second corkscrew is hidden in the bushes and then this monster takes you up to the final brakes.
Medusa was fun and, since it was floorless, it feels like your feet are about to be chopped off by the track because it is right there. This feeling seemed more apparent on Medusa than all of the other floorless coasters that I have been on though. I am giving it an 8 out of 10.
