Didn't get to ride this B&M creation as I wasn't tall enough.

If your at the park you can't miss this ride! Yes it looks a little lame because of the parking lot below you but the thrills are far above the themeing!

This is the best ride in the park. It was smoother than I was expecting and they were running 2 trains. We went during Spring Break and I pretty much walked right onto the line, so that added to the appeal. I was surprised at how fast it went!

A very fun floorless. The layout is great. Surprisingly, this coaster has not aged well. There were a few moments of headbanging and shuddering. The straight first drop on this is pure bliss, and from the front it is flat out freaky! The backseat actually gives the better ride, but the front seat view is without a doubt worth the wait. The hang time in the vertical loop is amazing! In fact I really love the first three elements - the vertical loop, immelman and zero g-roll. The sea serpent element was nice, but its main allure is the fact that its just different. Compared to the other elements its not particularly memorable. The second half of the ride is nearly as enjoyable as the first, with plenty of directional changes and some actual airtime in the dips! Although the ride is great, I take off a few points because of horrible theming. This coaster is plopped in a parking lot. Other than that, medusa is very fun, albeit a bit shaky.

Yeah, I know this ride is pretty much the mirror image of Scream! at Six Flags Magic Mountain, but Medusa was made first and since Scream! was my #2 ride, Medusa takes its place due to originality. I loved this ride!

An outstanding B&M floorless coaster, and the first on the west coast. This Medusa outshines its eastern counterpart as well as Scream down south at Magic Mountain by having a straight drop as opposed to a twisting, curved drop. I much prefer that. Other than that, they are all pretty similar, except that this one has a roll over rather than a cobra roll (you enter and exit the inversion in opposite directions here). My favorite inversion on this coaster and all B&M floorlesses is the zero-g roll, which flips you pretty forcefully and then yanks you out of it. This ride is constructed out over some old parking lot, so there is not much theming, but it makes for a great-looking welcome to Marine World.

semi over-rated, but still a blast.

No doubt the best roller coaster I have ever ridden, Top Gun is my other favorite.

Very fun ride. I rode it 8 times in one day because I liked it so much. It went through the inversions so perfectly, and has a great zero-g roll.

definatly the best ride in the park. they should scrap kong at get a real inverted off b&m. then it would be a good park and being close to parramounts great america knotts berry farm and majic mountin dosnt help it very much. it would be a nine but b&m deserve a good review because they are clearly the best
