Park officials said the delay in Green Lantern's debut was not caused by mechanical issues but rather last-minute design changes to the coaster's loading station.
Crews have completed construction on the vertical, emerald-green track and continue to assemble the five throwing-star-themed coaster cars, with on-track testing expected to begin soon. A 10-foot-tall lantern icon near the ride's entrance will glow green at night.
