Medusa was a Custom Coasters International wooden roller coaster located at Six Flags Mexico in Mexico City, Mexico. The ride closed on August 18, 2013.[1] On August 29, 2013, Medusa Steel Coaster was announced, with an opening the following year. Built by Rocky Mountain Construction, it uses much of the supports of Medusa, and follows a similar track layout.[2]



From the top of the lift hill, the train performed a left-hand curve and dived towards the lift, veering to the right and pulling out of the drop. Pulling back up again, the layout doubled back and sent passengers around a right-hand turnaround. Medusa then traveled into another turnaround and reversed directions to begin retracing the coaster's layout. Flying back under the third curve, the coaster curved to the right and then dived back to the ground, climbing again to reverse direction and head back under the supports. Finally, after one more banked curve, the ride came to an end and a final brake run sent the train back to the station.


2 trains with 6 cars per train. In each car, riders are arranged 2 across in 2 rows, for a total of 24 riders per train.

Medusa used trains built by Gerstlauer.[3]
