Six Flags Magic Mountain Announces New Rides To Reclaim Roller Coaster Title (Video)

Looking to reclaim the title of "Roller Coaster Capital Of the World", Six Flags Magic Mountain has announced two new, ground-breaking roller coasters scheduled to open in the Spring of 2011. The LA Times describes the forthcoming Green Lantern ride, the first of its kind in the U.S.:

Upon boarding a train that straddles the track, eight riders per car face in two directions, forward and backward. A chain lift carries each car up an inverted curved section to a height of 107 feet. From there, the suspended trains rock back and forth on the straight-aways and rotate head over heels as the cars plunge over freefall drops.

Watch the stomach-churning concept video below.
