Boomerang Review

We're here at Knotts Berry Farm. For today's review, we're going back in time to ride Boomerang. Nothing special, just an ordinary Vekoma Boomerang. After climbing in the seat and pulling down the shoulder harness, you dispatch. Up the lift you go backwards. You get a pretty view of Xcelerator while going up the lift hill. On this Boomerang, once you get to the top, you just seem to stop for 5 seconds. Once you're done hanging there, you drop. The drop is really fun and you get some nice speed. However, once you pull up into the sky as you enter the cobra roll, That's where the pain begins. After you slam into the restraint coming out of the 1st half of the Cobra Roll, you get slammed going into the 2nd half of the cobra roll. Then you go into a loop. The loop is not fun as there is alot of headbanging and shakiness. Then you climb up the second spike, as we climb up the second spike, you get a chance to recover, but then, you drop. Backwards you go. The loop isn't quite as bad backwards. And then you go backwards into the cobra roll. It really confuses you as it slams you backwards. And finally, after all the slamming is over, You glide into the station. Well, this Boomerang is now gone from Knotts Berry Farm. I'm not sure if it's going to get a new home. If it does, I'll remove the tombstone. But if it doesn't find a new home, it won't be missed.
