Green Lantern: First Flight Construction Update #3 At SFMM

By on 02/01/2011

The construction of Green Lantern: First Flight continues to move forward at Six Flags Magic Mountain. Last week we saw that all of the concrete paths from the old Batman: The Ride queue had been removed. This week we see that the heavy machinery has been moved in and lots of dirt is being moved around.

This first picture shows the area just to the left of where the main construction is occurring. It was covered by heavy brush and plants just last week. I specifically remember that because there were a couple of young Japanese girls trying to hide their backpacks in the foliage so they could go on a ride. Looks like it may be used as part of the queue area:

There is now a marker in the middle of the giant planter that once housed the Gotham City statue and three large trees. Since the planter has not been removed, I’m inclined to believe that it will remain and somehow be incorporated into the new ride, perhaps as part of the queue area:

I spotted this marker on the concrete walkway just to the left of the planter:

Lots of earth being moved around in the actual construction area:

The section in the middle is looking fairly level with some markers being placed:

Continuing to pan to the right, you can see the bad boys that are doing all the heavy lifting:

Panning to the right again, you can see lots of markers that have been placed:

Here is an aerial shot of the construction site I took from the Sky Tower. That’s the Tidal Wave lift hill you see in the foreground and you can just make out the entrance to Batman: The Ride behind the trees in the upper-right corner:
