After this summer's trip, I'm now at seven (listed from best to worst):

 

Boomerang Coast to Coaster (Darien Lake)

Zoomerang (Lake Compounce)

Boomerang Coast to Coaster (Great Escape)

Carolina Cobra (Carowinds)

Bat (Canada's Wonderland)

Boomerang (Knott's Berry Farm)

Flashback (Six Flags New England)

 

I've also seen two boomerangs that I couldn't ride due to them being closed all day (Six Flags Discovery Kingdom and La Ronde), and I've been on one invertigo (CGA's former Invertigo) and one Giant Inverted Boomerang (SFMM's former Deja Vu).

Somehow, on my last coaster trip I managed not only to only get one new Boomerang credit, but also to successfully only ride ONE Boomerang? Go me! (Then again, I did ride two Zamperla Volares that weren't even new to me, so...)

The only one I've been on is Boomerang @ Wild Adventures.

 

That was this past March. I wasn't all that fond of it; although I did ride twice in a row since there was no line. I was fine going forward, but going backwards through the cobra roll was not a pleasant feeling. Of course this one still has the old restraints too; not that I think it would have been better with the new ones...it is a Vekoma after all...lol. I love going backwards on coasters normally. I loved Viper (when it was at SFOG), Thunder Road and Rebell Yell when they had a backwards train, and even the backwards portions on Expedition Everest and Revenge Of The Mummy (USF).

 

The next opportunity to ride another one will be when I go to Carowinds next season (hadn't been since '08).
