Green Lantern: First Flight Opens as Six Flags Magic Mountain’s 18th Roller Coaster
Magic Mountain recently unveiled their second new roller coaster in the same year as Green Lantern: First Flight opened as the park’s 18th roller coaster. At 18, Six Flags Magic Mountain has the most roller coasters of any theme park in the World. The strange looking ride is a 4th dimension roller coaster which features seats that can spin 360 degrees.
The Coaster Guy’s Coverage – A Different Ride Every Time
Back on June 30th friend of the blog, The Coaster Guy, attended Green Lantern: First Flight’s media day. He has some great coverage of the event and the new roller coaster. Green Lantern is an Intamin ZacSpin and unlike Magic Mountain’s other 4th dimension coaster, X2, the seats spin freely depending on the weight distribution of the riders.
The Coaster Guy and his riding partner were a good bit heavier than the kids sitting behind them. So, their ride included a lot of pressing against the restraints. It sounds like he liked the ride, but your ride could vary each time depending on gravity and the weight of the riders.
