(3/23/19) Screamscape was able to get an official statement from Six Flags Magic Mountain’s Sue Carpenter regarding the fate of the park’s Green Lantern coaster:
The Green Lantern: First Flight roller coaster at Six Flags Magic Mountain is scheduled to be removed at a later, undetermined date to make room for future development. The park has no plans to open the ride before it is removed.
Six Flags Magic Mountain, the “Thrill Capital of the World,” continues to have an unparalleled world-class roller coaster collection. The park is open daily and will debut the world’s first dual racing launch coaster, West Coast Racers, later this year.
So there you have it… Green Lantern: First Flight is officially no more, and we will see the one and only Intamin ZacSpin coaster in the American continent removed. There are currently only three other such coasters, all located in Europe: Inferno at Terra Mitica, Insane at Grona Lund and Kirnu at Linnanmaki.


So it's official, Green Lantern at SFMM is no more. Not that it will be a massive loss for the park.

Good. I think I rode this once and never again. I remember braking upside-down, which was horrible, although I think it was a particularly brutal run. It's not so much the forces as it is the restraints.

I love these rides when they're unbalanced as F- :lol: The rides were at those moments so much more interesting as it actually does flips it wasn't calculated for. 8-)

This ride was so notably awesome that it wasn't even worth the effort to put together a press release to announce its demise. :lol:
