Flashback to just over two weeks ago, we have some updates regarding these two parks, and a couple of the rumors that we addressed.
Magic Mountain Green Lantern Update
Good news to some, bad news to others, crews have been spotted finally working on Green Lantern's structure. The ride has been down for several months now, and rumors of its demise began to swirl around.
Park regulars are speculating that trim brakes may be added to the ride to help make the ride experience smoother and entice less flips. Parts were likely ordered from Intamin, and took a while for manufacturing and shipping overseas. It's hard to find many people who actually enjoy Green Lantern's previous ride experience. The restraints were tight, uncomfortable, and the ride threw you around uncomfortably.
I'm satisfied with this move, because as bad as Green Lantern is, it's better than the park removing it, and merely replacing it with a Free Spin coaster next year. That decision would totally be a "Six Flags thing" to do.
Six Flags over Texas could Reinstall Troika
We also reported on the removal of the Crazy Legs/Harley Quinn Spinsanity Troika ride. Some reports indicate that this may be for a wider scale refurbishment of the ride, so it can be reinstalled at a later occurrence.
While the ride was just refurbished two seasons ago, that was only for paint and retheming into Harley Quinn. This project could see the ride's mechanical system and ride vehicles see more attention. This is just a light rumor at this point, but is definitely a possibility considering the longevity of troika ride lifespans.
