Medusa is a steel floorless roller coaster located at Six Flags Discovery Kingdom in Vallejo, California, USA. Opened in 2000, the ride was the third Floorless Coaster installation from Bolliger & Mabillard. This is one of the two (formerly three) coasters to be named "Medusa". The other coaster named Medusa is a Custom Coasters International, Inc. Wooden roller coaster at Six Flags México. The third Medusa was located at Six Flags Great Adventure, but has since rethemed and renamed Bizarro.
