Are they both the same or are they different?

I think Medusa East is a hair shorter(in height and length), has a curved drop and a standard cobra roll.

Medusa West has a straight first drop, East doesn't. Dive loops are angled differently. East has a cobra roll, West has a "sea serpent." West has a flatspin directly after the block, East has a helix. West doesn't have interlocking flatspins, East does. West has two helices, East only has one.

I think that's about it, anymore questions, I'll try and answer 'em. :)

Legendary nailed it. Medusa west also has "pea gravel" in the supports to silence it. It is dead quiet which is really weird for a B&M!

I also believe that Madusa east and Batman Knight Flight are the same design?

Medusa E drops to the left, Knight Flight to the right.

No two B&M coasters (with the exception of B:TR clones and that Raptor clone in Japan) are alike.
