Green Lantern Coaster is a steel roller coaster at Warner Bros. Movie World on the Gold Coast, Australia. Themed after the Green Lantern, the ride officially opened on 23 December 2011. It holds the record for the steepest drop on any roller coaster in the Southern Hemisphere, as well as the second steepest of any coaster in the world.
The seven trains that are used on the Green Lantern Coaster double the capacity of the traditional El Loco ride from 4 seats per train to 8 seats per train.The trains are articulated in such a way that the first row of four riders moves independently from the second row.Each seat features a pair of stereo speakers in the head rest.
These speakers are capable of playing multiple tracks for up to 9 minutes on a single charge.Riders are harnessed in to the ride through the use of lap bars and seat belts.The front of each car features a pulsing LED Green Lantern logo while the back of each car features the Green Lantern oath.All of these operational and thematic characteristics are new for this type of ride and were developed specifically for the Green Lantern Coaster.
