There has been no official layout released by SFMM. However, from the looks of it, it might be pretty similar to Medusa East mirrored. First dip: Medusa- left, Scream!- right, First drop: Medusa- left, Scream!- right. There's the evidence so far, not to mention the brake run.

Well.. For some reason, Scream's drop looks to be a little steeper/banked more. But maybe its just the angle. Who knows. But I wasn't all that impressed with Medusa, BKF is better I think. So hopefully some modifications happened with Scream.

I totally agree about Batman: Knight Flight - THAT is how a coaster should be done. It actually has fun non-inverting elements. Not just loop loop loop, blah blah blah. Same witn FOF/Jinx/Poltergeist - I love them because they have inversions and lots of other good stuff.

Scream! is a mirrored version of the New Jersey Medusa coaster. I think it has been known already.

As for Batman Knight Flight, it was good, but not the best.

Medusa is awesome, but clones sometimes suck if you've been on the original. I'd bet it's gonna have a few differences that'll be worth while.

I believe this is some sort of a compressed layout. If you look at construction photos, the cobra footers are directly in front of the station, which isn't so on Mesuda East. Also, footer placement for the corks appears to be within 20-30 feet of the lift, whereas Medusa easts sprawl at least 70 feet out from the lift.

It is not a mirror of Medusa East! Yay, another original B&M. The statistics alone, 150 feet tall, 65mph, contrast with Medusa East. Also, it will have a unique zero-g roll, should prove interesting.

How is the zero-g roll unique?

It has been designed slightly different than the typical B&M zero-g roll, not sure if we will be able to tell while on the ride or not though. I think they designed the roll to be taken at slightly higher speed than their other coasters and thus "redesigned" it.

SF plays with statistics ALOT. Remember when MW's V2 was supposedly 150 feet tall? I remember WoA claiming that Serial Thriller had a bind blowing 7 inversions. I also recall SFMM's Deja Vu somehow being 197 feet tall, while GAms was 177 and OG's was 170. Simply rule- don't trust SF's stats.

yeah the drop already appears to be much sharper than Medusa's.... but the footers all seem to be very consistent with a mirror... although i cant say whether it looks compressed or not (like ThePhantomLives said). i bet it'll be pretty damned similar... but with a few noticeable differences.

I think I need remind all of you who are using the argument of the statistics stated in the press release of something...

Premier Parks Inc. is horrible with quoting stats correctly. They are the same company who claimed Serial Thriller at SFWoA would have 7 inversions (read: only the standard 5) and that Vertical Velocity at SFMW top out at only 150 feet tall (read: really 180 feet). :oP

well they knowlingly claimed that V2 at SFMW would only be 150 because that was the height limit for rides. they were authorized to build a ride 150ft tall, but they built one 180.

inevitably, somebody noticed that it was actually 30ft taller than they said, so they were forced to modify. they didnt get the stats wrong by accident.

That's true in certain instances. An exact clone is the same ole, same ole. A mirrored clone offers more. After riding a zillion Batman's the go off to the left at the top I was used to it. The first time I rode SFStL's version (mirrored for those that didn't know) I was totally freaked out. There was actually a point on the ride where I didn't know what to expect. You body gets in the habit of taking those corkscrews to the left then right, not vice-versa. It was cool. I'm looking forward to SFNO's mirrored version also. Even though it is the same old Batman, it still create's that sense of confusion.

According to Intamin, thats not the case. They said that the ride had been built with the intention of modifying it the 1st season all along.

I don't think so. Industry publications like AT talked about the height problem. Why in the world would they spend millions to change it after the first season on purpose? Can you back up your claim?
