Riding Green Lantern!

In Spring 2011 New Jersey’s Six Flags Great Adventure will unveil a Green Lantern Rollercoaster.

This coaster allows the passengers to stand up through the whole 2 minute and 30 second ride.  The 15 story coaster is capable of reaching speeds of 63 miles per hour.  The ride starts out with 45 degree vertical drop and takes the rider through 5 inversions.  First the rider goes on a 121 foot tall loop, then a 103 foot dive loop followed by a 72 foot inclined loop,  finishing with a twisted double corkscrew.  This 154 tall ride sounds pretty intense.
