Seven inversions? Seven? Impressive...........................or is it? Make no mistake about it, Medusa is certainly a crowd-pleasure and definitely has its place in Six Flags Great Adventures crowded thrill ride line-up. But in my opinion, companies 30 years ago could make a ride with one or two loops that created more of an amazing inversion series than this 9-year-old monster. This is really the first time I will have to accuse a B&M of being "forceless." The drop was sweet, the overall pacing and speed were great, the smoothness was spectacular. But it was a ride where your head, feet, torso, and everything else experienced no memorable sensations whatsoever. Epic blandness made good. I will admit that I only got one ride, in a middle row, next to some complaining, tipsy "guests." Still, I was under whelmed by the great Medusa, and the old-school B&M thrill I was promised. I actually thought that the most intense part were a few turns following the block brakes.
Ah well, I will no doubt be back to Great Adventure, and she is definitely worth another spin!
