Six Flags Magic Mountain suddenly closed Green Lantern: First Flight in 2017 without explanation. This roller coaster remained standing until it was removed and relocated to another Six Flags park in late-2019.

This was the first roller coaster of its kind in the United States. DC Comics Super Hero Green Lantern took form as an Intamin "4th Dimension" Zac Spin coaster with a unique vertical track layout. Riders spun their way down through 825-feet of track on unique trains that make three, 360-degree spins. By most accounts, this was a dreadfully painful ride and regarded by many as one of the "worst roller coasters" out there.
