Im a big fan of Vekoma Boomerangs. This is a pretty good one, but isnt quite the best one that I have been on. The backwards portion is very intense and is the best part of the ride.
It is sad that this is the second best coaster in the park and second most marketed.

I think this boomerang coaster actually works well at Great Escape. It takes up very little room in a corner of the park where there certainly isnt room for anything with a larger footprint. And it is also I guess the biggest, wildest looping coaster in the park, so if youve never been on a boomerang before, this could be an impressive ride. Now, I realize that most of us have ridden many boomerangs before, but this one stood out as well by actually being quite smooth. So the ride was really more intense than rough, the way it should be.

Not as rough as some boomerangs, but Im not a big fan of these coasters in general. This version did nothing to change my mind.

this boomerang was pretty smooth. i liked this one better than the one at sfne. almost the whole ride is very smooth with a very small amount of headbanging. the roughest part of the ride is going up the cobra roll backwards. but overall, i liked this ride a lot more than steamin demon. and this is one of the best roller coasters in the park, with comet being first.

In this park it deserves an 8 because there isnt much else besides the comet. The Great Escape need a serious face lift. Ive been giong since I was a toddler. It was great as a kid, but not much fun for the adult.

I love these rides they are very thriling with the hills and i dont know what you are talking about with this ride wasting space because this is the only thriling ride that takes up so little space and there is never a linre at night so you can ride it agin and agin and you get a diffrent ride in every seat this ride rules

Smoother than other Boomers Ive been on, but it doesnt hold up well to other coasters, even at the same park.

Yet another Vekoma bommerang. However, this one had the worst capacity out of any of the boomerangs ive been on thanks to the dumb loading process and slow lift hills. I wasited well over an hour for a ride that probably deserved no more than a half hour wait.

A little smoother than other boomerangs. The OTSRs didnt smell as they do on most of the clones, so I gave it an extra point.
