Six Flags Great Adventure’s Medusa Gets the X2 Treatment
Medusa opened in 1999 as the world’s first floorless roller coaster. Read more about floorless coasters. Now, Six Flags Great Adventure has announced that it will get the makeover treatment in the off season. This is a growing trend with Six Flags these days after this year’s X2 re-launch and next year’s (risky) Superman: Ride of Steel renovations.
According to the press release:
“The Medusa redesign will deliver a multi-sensory ride experience with all-new thematics and innovative, state-of-the-art visual, audio and sensory effects launching it into another dimension of thrills and excitement.”
“Six Flags Great Adventure continues to push the envelope — going far beyond traditional coasters to offer thrill seekers the exhilaration of a roller coaster combined with unique storytelling and high tech elements incorporating fire, fog, water and precisely orchestrated audio production designed to assault the senses for a world class “show” on a roller coaster. “
