'Green Lantern' ride not for faint of heart

The "Green Lantern" ride at Six Flags Magic Mountain will open Friday, and it's not for the faint of heart.

Six Flags says "Green Lantern: First Flight" is the first rollercoaster with a completely vertical zigzag pattern track. Each car twists and turns as it swirls around the track.

Eyewitness News reporter John Gregory got a sneak peek of the ride Thursday, and he said it's two minutes of thrilling and stomach-churning fun.

Officials said the ride is designed to make you feel like you are falling off your chair at every turn. Riders are seated in eight-person vehicles - four abreast and back-to-back.

The coaster takes you up a 107-foot hill before spinning down through 828-feet of twisted vertical track, which includes 360-degree spins.
