Magic Mountain Trip Report Green Lantern problem

MM was more crowded than expected on 092013. Wait times for Tatsu, Apocalypse, and Green Lantern were 1-half hour to 2 hours. Some people had Flash Passes. I enjoyed the scenery and the rides for the most part. One exception was Green Lantern. The actual ride cycle was fine with high thrill value. As it is a vertical plane free pitch kind of ride as it would happen we wound up taking the large turn near the bottom on our heads. Imagine taking 3 negative Gs. Blood rush to the head. It made me sneeze. That's not the problem. Both my seatmate and I had trouble boarding the ride because the seat were too high. Ride-op didn't help either of us. I had to grab and climb. I'm not sure how my seatmate finally got in, but when the ride ended she complained of a medical issue. The ride manager came over with a step stool, so I know that there was some help available. I got out fine with out it. She needed medical assistance so an EMT arrived shortly.Green Lantern is a suitably intense and short ride but the height of the seats concerns me. My ride on Scream was thrilling and best part, I only had to wait 25 minutes. I passed on Full Throttle and its hour long line and opted for shopping at Flags and Looney Tunes store.

Seats on certain Intamins are often pretty tough to get into for people who aren't tall, never been on a Zac Spin before, though, only inverted Intamins. I have trouble getting into the seats on the Volcano and impulse coasters, and my friend who is 4'10", has a really hard time.
