Hey peeps. I just wanted to see what everyone out there prefers more, Medusa east or Medusa west? whats the best coaster between the two?
<BR>
<BR>Mine has to definitley be medusa west! Its taller, faster and the new seas serpent inversion rocks! I also like how the dive loop turns you back towards the way you where heading! Oh yeah and the first drop is much better!:):)

west. the only reason people say medusa east is because either its the first or it the only one they rode. i mean medusa east has such a basic layout (the square, wow, thats original) and only inversions. but medusa west has an awsome drop, sea surpent, and more turns.

West. Longer, better, cooler. B&M took what they learned with East and improved upon it.

In my opinion, West, definately. I've never been on East, but from what I see on the Greatest Coasters DVD, it's not all that, save for the interlocked corkscrews, those look pretty sweet. West has the straight down, lift-your-butt first drop, along with probably one of the best camelbacks ever created. The sea serpent is awesome, and the whole coaster has great pacing. It's also one of the smoothest and quietest coasters around. I was there at SFMW for the season passholder's night on 5/8, and while I was leaving at around 9pm, it was still running and it was so quiet. All you heard were a few screams here and there, and a silent hum. Awesome. Anyways, just my opinion. Peace. <IMG SRC="/phpBB/images/smiles/icon_smile.gif">

havent ridden west, but all i can say is, if all of you say its better than east, it must be a damn good coaster, because medusa east is one of the best ive been on so far..

I have not ridden either... but West looks slightly better with the "sea serpent" inversion. I've incorporated this move on RCT many times and I'm glad they finally put it on a ride.

Medusa West looks like a lot more fun, but then again I haven't ridden either one.

West cause the straight non curving first drop and the sea serpent roll.

West has the better elements and design. You can feel west's first drop but not East's.

It's East, I was just at SFGadv yesterday
<BR>and Medusa was very smooth, and line was quick, its set in a nice posistion in the park, not like Medusa West.

West is better. B&M just made their old design better. It is the same principal as goliath and titan (but lets not get off onto that topic).

Medusa West. I'm sure East is great but you can't beat a one-of-a-kind inversion. The Cammel backs are also fun.

this is basically east vs. west. any1 from the east votes for medusa east. any1 from the west votes for medusa west. Therefore i guess i vote for east.

Well I'm gunna change that.. actually Ive been on Medusa East and it was very good, but Medusa West looks really good too could easily beat it if I rode it.

The Sea Serpent isn't all that it's cracked up to be. They're both good, but Medusa east has the better pacing.

I haven't been on either, but I would think West would be just a little bit better just because East appears to be all inversions.

East is more original with the name and color scheme the locations is perfect secluded in the woods next to the safari where you can view it from the top of the lift.West unoriginal copied name built on a parking lot while you can spot it from other coaster and the copied logo and color and they have trims after the roll but I like how that drop looks.

I would say Medusa East, Because of what I've heard about it, and seen TV specials and comments, I have never been on either of them!

in terms of trakck design smoothness and air west is better. but east is in a better location and it is a lot closer to my house. i like west more though cause it is just a beter meaner layout. I rode west 6 times and east about 35

Medusa East:

PRO: Nice Location
CON: Medusa themeing in western area of park??

PRO: 1st floorless
CON: layout is kind of copy of Kumba

Medusa West

PRO: Taller than Medusa east
CON: Location and themeing: not good

PRO: Sea serpent
CON: Rest of the ride copies most other beemers.

I guess it's just a matter of opinion.
