Let's see. I've copy your list and cut out the ones I've known I haven't ridden.

 

Boomerang - Knott's Berry Farm (Operating 4/6/1990)

Boomerang - Wild Adventures (Operating 1998)

Boomerang - Six Flags Fiesta Texas (Operating 3/13/1999)

Boomerang - Worlds of Fun (Operating 4/8/2000)

Carolina Cobra - Carowinds (Operating 3/28/2009)

Flashback - Six Flags Over Texas (Operating 1989)

Flashback - Six Flags New England (Operating 5/5/2000)

Head Spin - Geauga Lake & Wildwater Kingdom (- 1996)

Sea Serpent - Morey's Piers (Operating 1984)

Sidewinder - Hersheypark (Operating 5/11/1991)

Zydeco Scream - Six Flags New Orleans (SBNO 6/10/2000)

 

Holy Moly, compared with your list, I only rode a fraction of all the Boomerangs out there.

 

I must say that this coaster has to have the record as the most duplicated coaster in the world.

 

One last note: My first ride on a Boomerang coaster was at Hersheypark in 1992. After riding it, I was thinking that this coaster was much better than King Dominion's old King Kobra coaster.
