Six Flags Magic Mountain to Remove Green Lantern: First Flight

News broke that the Green Lantern: First Flight roller coaster will remain permanently closed until it is removed at a later date. Screamscape was able to confirm this with Sue Carpenter:

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.

Being one of only four ZacSpin models built by Intamin, Green Lantern was the only Intamin ZacSpin ever built in North America. Whether or not it’ll meet the same fate as another Intamin roller coaster on the other side of the country, is yet to be determined. Having been out of operation since sometime in 2018, it’s no surprise that due to its frequent downtime, low capacity, and low customer satisfaction experience, Six Flags has made this decision.

The good news is that it won’t be an entire loss for Magic Mountain’s coaster count as not far from where Green Lantern sits will be West Coast Racers that will be opening up sometime later this year.

    Weird that no one has responded to this yet, specially after the frenzy because of Volcano.

    About damn time. I rode this coaster once and it hurt my back everytime it dropped going down.

    This coaster was awful. Glad to see it’s getting removed.

    It was very different like doing acrobat stunts. It was only 35 mph. Obese people complain about it but it’s good to have another line to wait in for something else. I’m glad I came into town just in time to try it before it’s gone. I remember the ride Enterprise/Reactor before this one around in the 80’s and I wasn’t around until last year just in time to see all the action and changes happening like never before. I caught up to date with flying colors because of the 365 promotion. I think I’ll come back in year 2030 after you’ve had enough of the newer rides. I basically focus on the top four rides because they are the very most intense perfect rides. Most parks only have a top three but when they get the latest suddenly they act like they got it all. If it’s not hype complaints, it’s hype praise. Dirty competition and fake comments. Out of staters should get the Platinum Pass because it’s crowded now.
