SFMW Medusa Construction Photos [1/22/00]

These were taken on Saturday, January 22, 2000. These were taken with an Epson PhotoPC 850Z digital camera.

I was very pleased not only to get some decent weather in the area, but also to see the progress they've made since my last visit! They've completed the lift, drop, vertical loop, diving loop, zero-G roll, and the Sea Serpent (a never before done B&M element!). I must say the Sea Serpent was smaller than I was expecting -- I guess I've been spoiled by Hulk's huge Cobra Roll!

I don't plan on going back very often since it's kind of a long drive. Keep an eye on Steve Silvas' great site, which is updated a lot more often than this one will be.
