 Review of Boomerang @ Knotts Berry Farm

First off I would like to say that I am only 5 5". I am rating this ride based on how it felt to me, and I understand that taller people my have issues. This was also my first boomerang so I am going to rate the boomerang mainly as the design because I have nothing to compare it to. With that out of the way Ill give the review. I waited in line for only about 15 minutes. The line moved pretty fast and there were very many cars which made loading move the line pretty fast. I got on and when the restraints were released I pulled them over and fount they fit just fine. My only concern at the time was that the sides were pretty hard and banging my head on them would hurt. Going backwards on the lift, this has got to be the slowest lift I have been on. It adds some fun to it in a way, but I think it should be faster. Release was fun, and I must say I found the forwards drop pretty nice and floaty. The cobra roll element was also pretty fun, though as hard as I tried to brace I still managed to hit my head on the side of the headrest pretty hard. The loop was nothing special but had pretty great gs on it. Catching on to the backwards lift gives an enormous jolt which hurt a little. The drop backwards was very fun and I felt like I was light as a feather. That soon changed on the loop which once again had high gs, although for some reason Silver Bullet- which usually is said to be forceless- seemed to have more on the first that day. The backwards cobra roll was also pretty fun if not a little forgettable. The brakes were fine at first but gave a nasty jolt at the end before we moved to the original positions. All in all, I find Boomerang to be a pretty fun and a somewhat smooth ride other than the brakes and second lift hill. It seems to be a sort of underrated ride to me, but then again I have not ridden one before. This ride is recommended, but I would not wait more than 25 minutes for it.
