This ride would be alot more fun if it didnt throw you around in the harness as much. Its a pretty rough ride but the loops and drop are fun to, plus it goes backwards. I really kinda liked the new trains/harnesses alot more comfortable then the old ones. The drops are really fun If you sit in the back because you go the highest but you barly go up when it goes backwards same for sitiing in the front. Still a great boomarang coaster.

Sidewinder is a black vekoma boomerang. This ride goes up to 48MPH. When I frist rode this it seemed the restraints were playing pin ball with my head. It&#39.s a good ride nothing compared to it&#39.s next door negibor storm runner.

a solid Vekoma boomerang, it actually appeared to be in good condition unlike most boomerangs I&#39.ve been on, it certainly rode like a Vekoma though.

Decent Vekoma boomerang, but not much more. The first drop on this one had some good zip to it and was pretty thrilling. Also, the elements on this one werent that rough and going backwards through the cobra roll was disorienting and had some strong Gs.

Im actually a big fan of the Sidewinder. I love doing the ride backwards. The only thing is that it tends to jar you a big.

Eh.. I rode Wildwoods boomerang and was like "hey this is kinda fun... why do people bash these?" I rode this one and was like "eh... I get it now" i guess riding my second one in a diff location, it was just boring, not sure if its this one or maybe Wildwoods is better because of location, but it was slow and rougher then I remember Wildwoods being, and going backwards with some headbanging gave me a headache... an OK ride, but I didnt repeat...

This was my second boomerang. I was just begining to think that it was just a bit better than my first, (Tidal Wave at Ocean City, MD) and then I simply got "popped" onto the second lift! It sounded like an explosion and absolutely bashed my entire body! After that, the backwards trip throught the cobra roll was even worse than the first time. I am a bit ashamed to say that I partook in the post ride sigh-of-relief that was train-wide and the ride-opps were cracking up at! Sidewinder is basically an awful, rough coaster with a horrible paint job that's smack in the middle of a great amusement park.
