New for Six Flags St Louis Green lantern Chaos Coaster

 

I'm pretty sure I made a joke about this very thing happening in one of my first posts after signing up six years ago. Let's hope we didn't both have a premonition!

As long as they don't put in a Larson Super Loop in GL spot, almost anything would be an improvement. Maybe it will reopen later this summer? I am glad to see the extensive work being done on Apocalypse too actually. With Superman's "issues", the park definitely is refurb / build kind of year.

 

i'm still hoping for a shaded park bench and bringing back the lemonade icee stand.

What's the precedent for rides being SBNO for an extended period of time, then reopening?

 

Not saying a reopening can't happen... Just if it's starting to walk like a duck and quack like a duck....

 

I believe Freefall was closed for 2 years and then opened up again for a bit before going away (RIP best ride)

Man that is great to see some progress! But personally, I gotta say, I'm a little bit ashamed of myself.

 

I used to know SFMM like the back of my hand, I'd know where every photo was taken from, I used to know all the locations, but has it been...that long...since I've been to the park where I'm doubting myself where this photo was taken from?!

 

I don't know if anyone else will know but I'm gonna guess, next to where the SkyScreamer up-pay attraction was? And that building to the right is where they used to take the old timey photos that looked like you where in the Wild West? In my head that seems almost right, but I thought they demolished the old SkyScreamer area.

Green lantern is no more according to screamscape

 

Park News - (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.

Calling it now: It’ll be replaced by an s&s free spin under the same name

 

I could definitely see them getting a free spin although I bet they would want to differentiate the two rides a bit considering how hated Green Lantern was.

 

I still am holding out hope another park would want to buy it and run it the way it was intended.

What was the difference between this one and the spin ones at other parks (like the Joker at Great Adventure). I went on both and found them to be pretty similar

 

They're built by different manufacturers. If you looked at pictures of them side by side you can see that they actually look virtually nothing alike, although I tend to agree with you that they give relatively similar ride experiences (unpopular opinion!). Neither are rides that I particularly enjoy, although I will say Joker was a little more refined and not AS painful as Green Lantern.

So with all the horror stories I have read with Green Lantern, why are the other models around the world not having the same issues that SFMM has/had? Looks like this might be the shortest-lived coaster there at SFMM EXCEPT for the two rides in the rotation program, Bobsleds and Shockwave.

the biggest difference is the seating position. the S&S free spins rotate near your waist. this one has 4 people back to back and the rotation point is behind you. so when it rotates, it throws you into the restraints.

 

the free spins rotate similar to X2. alan shilke talked about the difference in an interview once and it made me understand what happened to my brain and body the one time i gave it a ride. LOL

 

intamin did show a video of the zac spin 2 which had seating and rotation the same way the S&S free spins do.

i think that there are what 4, in all the world says something. i'd guess the other ride the same. some good rides, some bad rides.

When I rode INSANE at Grona Lund, I knew exactly what I was getting into. A very intense, sometimes

strong forces ride. Which was awesome! And on one of the two tours TPR did there, that I took,

one guy actually got a nosebleed from riding it.

 

But - did he sue Grona Lund? No, he didn't. By some miracle, he took responsibility, and got taken care of.

 

Now, if that happened at SFMM....what are the odds, huh? So they dumbed down the intensity of it,

throughout the cycle, and upped the security, which also sacrificed a LOT of comfort on it.

 

I rode it back in Sept.2016. Glad it's going away. I rode it only for the credit. And that's that.
