The world's first floorless coaster, Great Adventure's Bizarro is still among the best of its kind. It's quite smooth, yet has some serious attitude. It also offers some good bursts of airtime.

Um, where's the floor?
Medusa offers a layout similar to its sister floorless coaster, Scream-Ride out Loud at Six Flags Magic Mountain in California. A follow-up coaster, called Medusa, at Six Flags Discovery Kingdom near San Francisco, is more or less a clone as well.
As the coaster goes through its paces, its open-air design offers an incredible sense of freedom. In addition to the look-Ma-no-hands pose coaster junkies love to strike as they soar through the air, Bizarro also inspires riders to extend their legs. (Over-the-shoulder harnesses keep everyone snug and secure.)
