I always though that Boomerang's color scheme was butt ugly, in addition it simply being a painful ride. At least they can address the first problem. ;)

It would be a shame to lose a shop name like "Perilous Paraphenalia." (Do items in the store attack you?)

I do hope that Riptide & Xcelerator's track get re-painted. Both rides still have their original paint on.

Hopefully Xcelerator gets re-painted, with a new color scheme. I wish they were getting something major, but anything is better than Perilous Plunge. I never rode it when I visited because of the cycle times.

I always love it when parks change the color schemes of rides as it is always good to have some change. I can't wait to see Boomerang with the new paint.

If the donkey is rockin, don't come knockin!

Odd... I never noticed that the tops of Boomerangs don't match up.

This is not 100% for sure. They removed that date from the website, so they could be expecting a later date. Or it could have been a human error

All those neon-colored paint jobs look especially crappy when they start fading and get dirty. Boomerang definitely needs some new trains. More than any other I've ridden, Knott's version left me unable to brace my head from a side-to-side assault. Hopefully the Boardwalk area will look less pavement-y in the coming months.
1. Intimidator 305 2. Maverick 3. Bizarro at SFNE 4. Millennium Force 5. Raptor
6. Batman & Robin: The Chiller (defunct) 7. Nitro 8. Apollo's Chariot 9. Afterburn (Carowinds) 10. Lightning Racer

I Love Donkeys!

Sorry to hear about Boomerang's new paint, they must be planning on keeping it for a while. I was hoping an El Loco would soon be in that spot. Also would much rather see Xcelerator completely repainted before worrying about Boomerang, it looks awful now.
