Six Flags Mexico announced the closure of Medusa in 2013, so it could be retrofitted into an all-new steel roller coaster. The following year Medusa Steel Coaster opened.
This roller coaster was unique since it was designed to fit a compact site at Six Flags Mexico to avoid both below and above above ground utilities. Medusa was a wood roller coaster, designed with a "twister" layout that included five large drops, including an uncommon 53-foot drop near the finale. Because of Mexico City's history of earthquakes, the roller coaster was engineered with special techniques as a precaution for potential seismic activity.
