Boomerang Coasters at Various Parks
Boomerang Coasters are quite possibly the most popular coaster models in the world (there are 45 different ones). The first Boomerang to be built was built at a park in Mexico in 1982, although it wasn’t operated until 1984. By that time another one was already opened (this one is pictured below).
The ride starts with a slow lift backwards out of the station. Once the train reaches the top of the hill it is released and we drop forward back through the station. A cobra roll follows this and then a loop. We are then lifted to the same height as before on another lift. Then we are dropped through the entire course again backwards. This part is usually bumpy. We arrive back in the station moving backwards.
It seems like every major theme park chain has a Boomerang coaster. They are fun but rough (some parks are adding special trains so that they won’t be). I am giving all of the ones that I have ridden a 4 out of 10.
Have you been on a Boomerang coaster? What do you think? Please comment. Thanks for reading. 🙂
