This is going to be random but there's this guy I see EVERY time I go to WOF, and I'm curious if you guys know who he his. He's looks over 6 foot, I think he's ginger but I forget, but what makes him stand out the most, is he wears short shorts. My family has seen him so many times that we've started calling him shorts guy. Anyways I'm curious if you guys have seen him or if you know if he's a manager of some sort or what. He's just a strange guy and I see him every time I go.

OMG, I think I saw that guy last year. Were they like gold or silver short shorts?

Most waterparks recycle most of their water. It's not like they're going through hundreds of thousands of gallons a day.

Today the Vice President of the park was actually in the park with the GM, measuring and surveying the shops right in front of Boomerang. I also noticed new orange tags on trees along the route to Prowler. I also heard some murmurs about something taking the spot of Dino’s from a manager. With all the technical difficulties that Boom has had these past couple of seasons I won’t be surprised if see a final ride date pretty soon

^ I thought it was odd the Boomerang was down most of Memorial Day (and from guests apparently it was down the day before too). Short of a random valley, the boomerangs I've come across are usually fairly reliable.

It's especially weird since this isn't one of the older ones.

An RMC Raptor like Railblazer at CGA, or a Gerstlauer like Hang Time at Knott's, would be a good fit back there in place of Boomerang, and would seem like a reasonable expenditure for WoF as well!

I for one would celebrate the demise of Boomerang, but I would love for it to be replaced by something with a height limit lower than 48". Currently all that younger kids can ride there is Spinning Dragons and a wacky worm.

The Boomerang was my first coaster to go upside down, so it will always have a special place in my roller coaster lineup, but I do agree it is time for it to go.
