Yes, I'm a SFM fanboy but after seeing the Goliath POV, I really think Medusa is going to be THE RMC coaster of 2014!!!

It does look great. And those videos we saw were with empty trains!
The Mr Freeze coasters should have speakers playing the sentence: "Let's kick some ice!" right before each launch

What does one say after riding a Batman clone?

I'm a little disappointed that I was there a weekend ago to see family considering I can only go once a year. Oh well, at least I passed it on the highway and got a glimpse of it. Can't wait for a POV.

It appears that there was a fire at the park (games section) today according to Informador.

No damage to rides or injuries, and the park has posted to Facebook that they are open for business.

CIUDAD DE MÉXICO (08/JUN/2014).- Un aparente corto circuito en una bodega donde se guardan peluches y botargas del parque de diversiones Six Flags, ubicado sobre la carretera Picacho-Ajusco, en las inmediaciones de la delegación Tlalpan, provocó un incendio la mañana de hoy domingo que en cuestión de minutos fue controlado por elementos del Departamento de Bomberos de esta ciudad, sin que se registren lesionados.

Sin embargo, la columna de humo alcanzó poco más de 10 metros de altura, lo que provocó alarma entre vecinos y asistentes que desde las siete de la mañana estaban formados afuera del edificio para poder ingresar. Estos fueron los que alertaron de las autoridades del incendio, mientras que en el interior, los empleados trataban de sofocar el siniestro con extintores, lo que a decir de los bomberos, evito una situación mayor.

Raúl Esquivel, director general del Heroico Cuerpo de Bomberos de la Ciudad de México, informó a través de su cuenta de Twitter que para sofocar el siniestro en esta bodega, donde el techo se vino abajo, pero que afortunadamente no dejó lesionados, participaron 50 bomberos de las estaciones Tlalpan, Álvaro Obregón, Xochimilco así como del módulo 1 con 12 carros bombas y ocho carros tanques.

Hasta el momento, las autoridades de Six Flags México no se han pronunciado sobre estos hechos a pesar de la insistencia de los medios de comunicación en obtener una versión oficial de los hechos.
