    I don't think having all of the Six Flags discussion in one topic is really helpful so I've decided to start a new topic for Six Flags Mexico and their plan to give their wooden roller coaster Medusa so RMC treatment.


    I'll start by reposting about the park's recent addition...



    Now I'll move on to Medusa...

    The latest Iron Medusa update from Screamscape is that Medusa will be closing on August 18th but the park haven't released any details about what RMC have in store for the ride. Some Medusa fans have created a layout for what they'd like to see:

    Why must they all have the hideous orange track?

    Am I the only one who takes a disliking to these types of coasters? There's something about them I really don't like, the structure in particular.

    However, if we were to get one over here, I wouldn't turn it down.

    Yup. Woodies are ugly enough already without doing this to them.

    I think these things look gorgeous, but I'd love to see one with a different colour!

    I too find these hideous compared to regular wooden coasters.

    Some beautiful new photos on the TPR forum, even compared to other RMCs, this thing is turning into a monster!

    It looks like it'd deliver more of a zero-g sensation than Smiler's rolling drop, with the lapbar trains I bet this'll be awesome!

    This thing really does look like it's going to be ridiculously good fun! RCDB shared a photo on Facebook of the first inverting drop:

    I hope a European park goes for something from RMC soon; I'm getting really jealous of America now! :p They're hardly an unsafe bet, if you look at how long they've actually been in the industry, and the number of other rides they've worked on. Nearly 30 coasters across America!

    Those supports look VILE...

    How weird is it that these hybrids look so aesthically awful in comparison to normal wooden coasters?

    It's been a while since anything has been posted in here. The ride is now testing and is scheduled to open on June 14th which is now less than a week away! Here is what appears to be the best testing video so far:



    A lot of the views are obstructed by trees but it looks to be carrying some good speed. Hopefully there will be a POV soon!

    :)
