Boomerang: Coast to Coaster is a steel roller coaster of shuttle design currently in use at five different Six Flags & PARC theme parks. The ride was designed and manufactured by Vekoma, and is considered as one of its boomerang models. Each coaster has one train with a capacity of 28, two across in each row. Unlike Vekoma's suspended trains, "Boomerang: Coast to Coaster" operates a sit-down design. When the coaster starts, the train is pulled backwards up the lift hill, then dropped through the loading gate through a cobra roll and then one loop. At the end of this cycle the train is pulled up the lift hill at the end of the track, then dropped once again allowing the train to go back through the loops backwards, hence the name "Boomerang: Coast to Coaster."
Design and operation [ edit ]
Originally, the coasters had a
teal track & white supports. As of 2008 Darien Lake's model is still the original colors; Six Flags Discovery Kingdom's model has teal track and yellow supports; The Great Escape & Splashwater Kingdom's model now has a yellow track & red supports; Elitch Gardens' model has a yellow track and purple supports; and Six Flags Fiesta Texas' has teal track and orange supports.
This is the standard
Vekoma Boomerang roller coaster design found at forty-three different amusement parks worldwide. It is currently operating at Darien Lake (formerly PARC), Six Flags Discovery Kingdom, Elitch Gardens (formerly PARC), Great Escape (Six Flags), and Six Flags Fiesta Texas (Six Flags).
