Green Lantern is a Bolliger & Mabillard stand-up roller coaster located at Six Flags Great Adventure in Jackson, New Jersey.[1] The ride was relocated from Kentucky Kingdom where it operated as "Chang".

All of these records were formerly held by Mantis at Cedar Point, and were later broken by Riddler's Revenge at Six Flags Magic Mountain. Before its opening, the title to be used for the ride was "Riddler's Revenge", but that name was changed for unknown reasons.

Green Lantern features a similar, but not identical layout to that of Mantis and Riddler's Revenge. The ride drops 144 feet (44 meters) into the former largest vertical loop in the world. Next, the ride goes into a series of elements including a dive loop, a diving turnaround, and an inclined loop. At this point, the ride travels through the mid-course brake-run. The second half of the ride features low-to-the-ground curves, and two corkscrews.
