Six Flags Unveils Absolutely Ridiculous New Superman and Green Lantern Roller Coasters

Considering how pocket-draining expensive it is just to park at a Six Flags, let along actually go inside and perhaps even buy something to attempt to eat, it’s not always so exciting to attend the amusement park.

To keep their customers coming back, Six Flags likes to build crazy new attractions, especially roller coasters for all of those enthusiasts out there who are addicted to the thrill. The problem with that is that these days it’s really hard to figure out a way to keep making them bigger, faster, and more extreme than has ever been seen before.

With that, Six Flags would like to introduce us to their new coasters at Magic Mountain: Superman: Escape from Krypton, and Green Lantern. Be sure to click on over to the other side to see a cool video that gives you an idea of what riding these attractions will do to your equilibrium. Hint: it’s not good things.

The new Superman coaster, while completely and utterly nuts, is not all that new of a design. The new Green Lantern, on the other hand, is one of the most preposterous roller coasters I have ever laid eyes on, and it’s a mystery as to how this thing is going to work. You couldn’t pay me enough to get on that monster.

  1. I’d only get on the GL ride if I had a real working power ring. Know what I’m sayin’?!?

  2. Green Lantern rollercoaster looks absolutely GENIUS! Would love to know which crazy mastermind came up with this idea! My only problem at this point is living on the east coast (NY). Magic Mountain is sooo far away… =(

  5. That’s just fabulous! Just watching this clip gave me a fever. I’m 58, wish I knew someone my age that still loved going on those things. 40 years, yeah, I’ve rode on most of those coasters. Maybe I’ll take on the Green Lantern on my sixtieth birthday… even if I have to go alone like I did in Las Vegas. LOL!!
