Officials announced that the ride will be 154-feet tall and reach speeds of up to 63 mph. The coaster will offer a two-minute ride and will begin with a 45-degree vertical drop before rocketing riders through five loops.
"Six Flags is home to many of the biggest roller coasters in the world and Green Lantern brings a new dimension of thrills," said John Fitzgerald, park president.
"Green Lantern is guaranteed to deliver a smooth, white-knuckled adventure - but this time standing up while upside down," Fitzgerald said in a statement.
The new coaster is slated to debut in Spring 2011 in the Boardwalk section of the park.
