Baelfael Posted August 25, 2016 Share Posted August 25, 2016 I rode the Boomerang in 2003. It was my first ordinary boomerang. It was fun, but nothing to write home about. It strangely had the longest line of all coasters in the park, for being one of my least favorite coasters there. Boomerangs are clone coasters that seem to be everywhere. I would only rate King's Island's Invertigo as slightly better . The giant boomerangs such as SFGAm's old Deja Vu, are the best Vekoma boomerang rides. If only one of those would have came to SFSTL. Boomerang, especially ours, has awful capacity. Part of it is normal shuttle coaster woes, but part of it is also the truly hilarious configuration of "we need the guests to be 3 feet back from the gates." Plenty of trains get held up as OPs yell at kids to stand back. I think the Giant Inverted Boomerangs have significant reliability problems. The wiki for them certainly seems to point to more problems than good old fashioned Boomerangs have. Combine that with significantly higher institutional knowledge of Boomerangs, and even setting cost aside, it's not hard to see why Six Flags likes them more. (The updated restraint system would be a nice surprise though). Oh, and please turn Mr. Freeze back around like it belongs! Just to counter-balance the other random opinions on this page: no plz don't tia. So, according to the SFStl's Pass Holder announcement email sent today, they are making an official announcement regarding a new ride for 2017 on September 1st. Let the speculation and b*tching continue New for 2017 in St. Louis - once a week we will put a B&M Hyper train in DC Plaza and allow guests to enjoy the new coaster smell. We will then launch the train into the parking lot lake using a half completed coaster, Roller Coaster Tycoon style. We just want you to know suffering. HAVE A SIX FLAGS DAY.
