As an intergallactic tale that takes viewers from the skies of Earth to the alien streets of planet Oa, "Green Lantern" is loaded with fantastical elements that fans will want to escape to. Sadly, airlines aren't currently booking roundtrips to Oa, but "Green Lantern" enthusiasts have a solid alternative in a new roller coaster ride at Six Flags theme park.
A new "Green Lantern" roller coaster is hitting California's Six Flags Magic Mountain in the summer of 2011, according to the theme park's official website, boasting "a never been done before completely vertical zigzag pattern track."
"Fearless riders will brave the ride sitting in eight-person vehicles four abreast and back-to-back, each rotating independently," the site describes of the roller coaster. "The two minute thrill begins with riders going up the 107-foot left hill before spinning their way down through 828-feet of twisted vertical track, featuring three, 360-degree head-over-hill spins."
In addition to the "Green Lantern" ride, Six Flags have announced "Superman: Escape from Krypton," reconverting the Man of Steel's old roller coaster so that it can run forwards and backwards. The ride is expected to premiere in 2011.
Information is all well and good, but when it comes to roller coaster rides, it's best to experience the thing for yourself. While Six Flags can't help you on that front just yet, they're offering the next best thing with a video teaser that simulates how both the "Green Lantern" and "Superman" rides will operate.
