History

In 2010, Six Flags Magic Mountain announced that Gotham City Backlot would be renamed to DC Universe. The new area would be themed to DC Comics and would feature attractions inspired by Batman and the Flash. There would also be a new coaster called Green Lantern: First Flight.

Green Lantern: First Flight opened at Six Flags Magic Mountain on July 1, 2011 following a press preview the previous day. Its opening was delayed by several weeks due to modifications being need to the station building. It was based on the DC Comics superhero Green Lantern.[2] The ride did not operate after late 2017 due to unknown reasons, and on March 23, 2019, Six Flags Magic Mountain announced that Green Lantern: First Flight would be removed from the park in the near future to make way for future developments.[3]

On August 29, 2019, it was announced that the ride would be relocated to La Ronde for 2020, where it would be renamed Vipère and placed on the former site of Super Manège, the park's Vekoma corkscrew coaster that closed in August 2019. However, the coronavirus pandemic caused Vipère's opening to be delayed to 2021.[4]
