Six Flags Great Adventure 2009

Six Flags Great Adventure has announced that for the 2009 season their Medusa roller coaster (B&M Floorless coaster, circa 1999) will be receiving a 'transformation.'

"The Medusa redesign will deliver a multi-sensory ride experience with all-new thematics and innovative, state-of-the-art visual, audio and sensory effects launching it into another dimension of thrills and excitement."

The press release also mentions that the transformation will include fire, fog, water, and on-board audio. This treatment is similar to what X received at Six Flags Magic Mountain this year, and what Superman will receive at Six Flags New England next year.

Part of the release really caught my eye though: "Guests can take advantage of the last chance to experience Medusa's original Greek mythology theme during the remaining days of Fright Fest. Compelling details of Medusa's multi-dimensional ride transformation will be revealed as Spring 2009 draws near. "

What Greek mythology theme is there to experience now? There's the very, very loose 'mine' story going on, but not much else. I'm highly anticipating the "compelling details" that are still to come!
