Six Flags Magic Mountain has confirmed that it will remove its Green Lantern: First Flight coaster, which has not run at the park for the last couple years.
Here's the official statement from the park:
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.
The Intamin ZacSpin coaster opened in 2011. Here's our ride from opening day:
The Magic Mountain installation was the only one of its kind in the United States. Three Intamin ZacSpin nstallations remain in Spain, Sweden, and Finland. After the debut of Green Lantern, Six Flags turned instead to rival S&S Free Spin models for this type of coaster, installing them as Batman, Joker, or Wonder Woman rides at seven other parks across the United States and Mexico.
The removal of Green Lantern leaves Six Flags Magic Mountain with 14 "grown up" and four children's roller coasters, which will go to 19 coasters overall when West Coast Racers opens. No opening date on that yet, in case you were about to ask.Tweet
