A 'boomerang' style rollercoaster. Three loops forward, three loops backwards. 47 mph and 105' high. Very exciting.

I rather enjoyed the view at the top. I also enjoyed yelling at my niece to open her eyes and look at the view. She was terrified! - Tia Carly

No where near as bad as i thought it would be. Good forceful ride 7/10 - Bob Miller

Now here is a forceful ride that delivers every time you ride it. The Boomerang was probably the most intense element in the park. A definate MUST-RIDE! - Dakota S

Typical boomerang seen in every other amusement park. I you like these types of coasters you should ride I guess. Or you can just get on it while the line for Storm Runner gets shorter. If not, skip this. - Derrick O. Foreman

Never been on one quite like this. Got very dizzy after riding it. - Scott Sanders
