Brady MacDonald writes about theme parks for the Los Angeles Times, and he’s excited about the green movement at Six Flags

What I’ve dubbed the “most anticipated new roller coaster of the summer” has arrived at Six Flags Magic Mountain — and I’m already salivating.

Magic Mountain took delivery this week of the rocking and spinning Green Lantern coaster trains, which join portions of the emerald green track already on site at the Valencia amusement park. (Watch the concept video of the Green Lantern.)

Ground clearance is currently underway for the first-of-its-kind ride in the U.S., with vertical construction expected to begin in March in advance of a scheduled Memorial Day weekend unveiling. Crews still have to add the Green Lantern symbols and throwing-star designs to the sides of the five trains before on-track testing begins in late spring.
