A Round-Trip for Warriors.
The boomerang was invented by ancient Australian tribes as the ultimate weapon. What’s the benefit of the boomerang over a plain old stick? When you throw it, it slices through the air and then comes right back to you. But what happens if you hurl a mega-ton steel train down 938 feet of track at nearly 60 miles per hour? And what if we threw in two mind-ripping inverted loops and a corkscrew to get in your way? You’re gonna fly through this monster and then return to the starting point.
First you and your fellow tribesmen are going to pile into a long, sleek train which will waste no time in yanking you backwards up to a spiking 125 feet in the sky. Hang out up there for a second, because you’re going to need all the momentum you can get to tackle this ridiculous flight path.
Then, just like that classic weapon leaving a proud warrior’s hand, you’ll be released powerfully forward down the track. You’ll take on a corkscrew and a vertical loop. Now that you’re warmed up, how does the number 5.2 sound? Because that’s the number of Gs you’ll take as you then conquer another massive vertical loop.
You’ll get thrown through this so fast, you’ll be totally out of breath as the track curls up into the sky for a relaxing pause, hanging nearly straight up in the air. Sitting at the top of the rail, take a second to collect yourself. You’ve been through a lot, and there’s still more to come. Now the Boomerang is going to live up to its name. You’re going all the way back to the beginning, the way you came – only this time you’re doing it backwards. That’s two more vertical loops, and another corkscrew you’re gonna have to take on as you fly right back to where you started. Then and only then will you truly be able to call yourself a proud warrior!
Most people don’t know that Boomerang hides a mystery so deadly and befuddling that some of the the greatest scientists in San Antonio have gone mad trying to understand it while others have simply died of fright.
Within the workings of this ride lives something so wretched and so elusive, not much more can safely be said. No one knows where It came from. No one knows its demented goal. When it first arrived our best maintenance men tried to expel it. They’re all dead now. Or missing. Or zombified. Or retired.
This wicked invader raids the brain, melting and reconstructing the living tissue, replacing normal cells with the eggs of its evil nature. The eggs hatch immediately and, repulsed by the pleasant thoughts and feelings they encounter, the hatchlings vomit up their disgusting essence. The foul liquid coats the minds of thrill riders and, by the time they reach the ground, the pain is so intense, the sound so loud, and the ideas so hideous, their original personalities are only vague memories.
Once-innocent riders – now possessed – are directed to mingle with unsuspecting friends and others in the crowd to spread their wickedness. We warn our visitors, but evil does as evil pleases.
The minimum height requirement for Boomerang is 48″.

What Our Guests Say
"The Boomerang is two exciting rides built into one! A forward facing ride that launches you one way; and a backwards ride that leaves you with a surprise!"
"I love the anticipation of this ride! Knowing you get to re-live it again once you go backwards is fantastic!"
"The ride was smooth with just the right amount of speed, power and shifts to keep you wide-eyed. It was my seven year old son's first major roller coaster ride and he enjoyed it so much we road twice in a row."
"Singing through the air, unpredictable ups and downs, swirling around and upside down, true excitement!"
