Boomerang train about to descend lift hill.


Boomerang Coast-To-Coaster is a steel roller coaster of shuttle design currently in use at four different Six Flags & PARC themeparks. The ride has one train with a capacity of twenty- eight, two across in each row. When the coaster starts, the train is pulled backwards up the lift hill, then dropped through the loading gate through a cobra roll and then one loop. At the end of this cycle the train is pulled up the lift hill at the end of the track, then dropped once again allowing the train to go back through the loops backwards, hence the name " Boomerang Coast to Coaster. "

Originally the coasters had a teal track & white supports. As of 2008 Darien Lake's model is still the original colors; Six Flags Discovery Kingdommarker's model has teal track and yellow supports; The Great Escape & Splashwater Kingdommarker's model now has a yellow track & red supports; and Elitch Gardensmarker' model has a yellow track and purple supports.

This is the standard Vekoma Boomerang roller coaster design found at forty-three different amusement parks worldwide. It is currently operating at Darien Lake (PARC), Six Flags Discovery Kingdommarker, Elitch Gardensmarker (PARC),& The Great Escape & Splashwater Kingdommarker (Six Flags). Also, Carowinds just opened the ride March 2009. The ride from Carowinds features new cars that have never been activated before in the United States.
