Prior to Six Flags Kentucky Kingdom's closure in 2009, the park confirmed that they would be removing Chang for what they called a "waterpark expansion". Shortly after, the entire park was no more. However, one man's trash is another man's treasure! And Six Flags Great Adventure in New Jersey swept up the former park's crowning jewel, Chang. In preparation for the new ride, the Great American Scream Machine was removed in July 2010 to make way for the new, old ride.

In September of last year, Six Flags unveiled plans to install the new coaster on Great American Scream Machine's former location. The coaster would also be tied to the famous DC Comics character, The Green Lantern (which just happened to have a movie come out around the same time the ride would debut). The changes were to be minimal with the track painted green along with black supports; the ride layout itself was to remain unchanged.

And finally, this weekend marks the first weekend that Green Lantern: Stand Up to Your Fear has been open to the public. From rider reviews, the ride had no problems with the move at it is still one of the best Bolliger & Mabillard stand-ups on the planet. While it may not have quite the airtime like The New Texas Giant or the amount of effects as X2, it is still a solid coaster. And best yet, the area below the coaster received gravel so it doesn't look like it was built directly on a parking lot.
