How about THIS under Scream? Or something similar done to the pavement, underneath it.

I know I don't speak for very many people when I say this, but I will actually miss Green Lantern a little. Yeah, the other ones ran better and the ride was very uncomfortable and painful, but no other ride scared me as much as that ride did and that's a feeling I don't get on too many coasters anymore.

With that being said, I do prefer the S&S Free Spins since they are much more re-rideable. I would love to see Green Lantern replaced with one. Whether that's even marketable or likely is another discussion, but they could plop down a Joker clone in place of Green Lantern and I wouldn't complain a single bit!

I'm sure that we will see construction walls go up a few days before they start actually dismantling Green Lantern. I'm pretty sure it's gonna be announced next week as the new for 2020 attraction for La Ronde.

I keep putting on the surveys in the suggestions that they should paint the pavement under scream.

Honestly wish Scream was leaving instead, that hunk of junk has injured me much more over the years than GL.

What? How do you manage to get hurt on Scream? It's one of the smoothest rides in the park!

It's not even in the top 10 smoothest rides in the park, head banging, rattle galore. I'm was dumbfounded when I rode Bizarro at Gradv, butter smooth and enjoyable. Not sure where B&M went wrong with this one...

If the train rattles through the track, then that is normally a maintenance issue and not a B&M issue. If you get a shopping cart at the grocery store and the bearings are bad or dirty on one wheel and the whole cart rattles and seizes up when you try to push it straight, you don't blame the ground; you get another cart. I have had many smooth rides on this, so if it was a track issue, the ride would be rough all the time.
I love to roam where the wild things are.
