Well, SFMW Online has a pic of the sea serpent inversion. I don't think there is a video on the site.

Americacoasters.com just added a video of Medusa at SFMW, I believe its an off-ride video since most of their videos are on-ride.

The video is not there. Don't worry, I've emailed the webmaster - xbombman, about it.

I've also never seen the SS in action & am looking forward to seeing the video once it's up.

Not to burst your bubble, but I'll tell ya, it looks alot cooler than it rides. It actually feels more like a very streched out Arrow double corkscrew more than anything else. I would have much preferred the directional changing Cobra Roll instead, would have been much more exciting.

If they had made the rolls tighter and less spaced apart, it might have packed some g's or something. As it is, it's very forceless, and kind of a let down after the previous 4 kick *** elements. B&M can do better than this, I doubt they'll ever use this element again without some major modifications to make it more exciting.

Draco -
How can you think Medusa is "a very stretched out Arrow double corkscrew?" Medusa was built by B&M, not Arrow.
Medusa rides great. The floorless effect is the best I've seen since the inverted effect.

You don't like how SMOOTH the ride is?

Whatever...

I think the sea serpent isn't that much more stretched out that a cobra roll, because on the cobra roll you are changing directions. On the sea serpent it just seems longer because your aren't changing directions (lateral direction), so it seems like there is a little less going on. I agree though, while I like the sea serpent, I would rather have a greater variety of lateral g's, and a cobra roll is great for that.
On the plus side though, the Sea Serpent leaves you a lot dizzier and a little more dissoriented than a cobra roll.

Stealthmf5m3, the topic was about the Sea Serpent element on Medusa, not the ride itself. I realize it's a B&M ride and not Arrow. I was simply stating, that IMO, the SS element "feels" like a stretched out Arrow double corkscrew, which to me it does.

Besides bud, it's just my opinion, no need to get excited. Medusa is an incredible ride, one of my favorites. I was just a little dissapointed with the SS element, that's all :)

I also thought the Sea Serpent was a little boring. Maybe if the twist was tighter inbetween the inversions it would be more exciting. Medusa is still an awesome ride, one of my favorites.
