I was talking to a friend who used to live in mexico city and visited Six Flags Mexico many times. That reminded me of that totally forgotten hyper coaster which was new for this year (I think). Is it any good? I haven't heard of anyone who has actually ridden this.

Yea it does look awesome. Even though I know alot of people have put Morgan on the bottom of the list as a builder of hypers, I've liked what i've ridden. That includes Steel Force, Mamba, Phantom's Revenge and one not so hyper Quicksilver Express (which I also really enjoyed).

 

Personally I can't wait to ride next July when i'll be down there!

I talked to a couple people who have ridden Ultimo Escapo and they said the mid-course brake run was on hard - meaning the train almost stops. This was opening weekend. They also said Six Flags Mexico was toying with the idea of turnning off the trim.

Lets hope.

 

SFM is home to what I consider to be one of the greatest CCI layouts ever. Medusa looks friggin awesome...if only they ran PTC's and not those G-Trains.

 

But still, if it is maintained well, it could be an insane ride. Layout is very, very cool.

I was always impressed with the looks of Medusa, unfortunately I've heard from a few people who've ridden it that it's nearly unrideable and not being kept up at all.

 

I figure we'll get there eventually but there are a bunch of places I think I'd rather go first. I wish the parks were on the coast so I could hit them on a cruise!

^That sucks and that doesnt suprise me. However, it does look VERY intense. I had (may still have) a POV of it and it felt like it pummeled the camera man holding it. It just looks like a very classic example of CCI engineering something thats far too intense to be kept up at a chain park.

 

Shoot, it has two crazy nearly unbanked fan turns which Im sure tear you up along with some low, fast turns that I bet need lots of care.

 

 

Sucks. It looks so good too.

Mexico's Medusa was nearly unrideable. However, it recently went under extensive work (including a complete rebuild of the Gerstlauer trains). How it's running after all that, I don't know...

Which is something Ive never quite understood, I loved Mamba!

 

I was looking at pics of this coaster on RCDB and I was wondering about the layout.... it looks pretty sweet!

 

Its too bad they had the MCBR on so hard though (from waht you guys have said), I remember that completely ruining the second half of Mamba.

Well as for Medusa...Heres a horrible POV of it, probably of how rough it was.

 

 

The ride actually looked pretty smooth. The camera wasnt shaking that much, it was just tilted 90 degrees..... what a horrible camera man!

^Good Call, that guy should NOT be in possesion of a video camera, worst - filming - ever.

PLUS, he was holding on to the hand rail on the lift hill......?

 

Loco, thanks for the link, Medusa looked like pretty good coaster to me, maybe a bit rough, but it was hard to tell.

 

Superman looks pretty good too, i'd like to get to this park one day, but like Elissa said, theres plenty more to do before this one.

I checked out the POV's last night and "Superman" has a good layout, I like the small humps at the start of the ride before the lift hill, that's very Rollercoaster Tycoon 3 ish

 

With Medusa's POV your looking sideways for most of the ride, anyone else got a POV of it..?

^^ Thanks for the video, that other supposibly 'worst video on earth' one wouldnt work for me

 

As for Superman, It looks like it has good layout and a lengthy ride, I wonder what the atual ride is like?
