Least Favorite Vekoma Boomarangs

Recommended Posts

I've never been on a Boomerang, but i have been on an Inverted Boomerang. That being said, my least favorite Vekoma Inverted Boomerang, (If that counts), is Invertigo, here at Kings Island. Invertigo is also the only inverted boomerang i have been on, making it also my favorite Inverted Boomerang.

My least favorite boomerang is Goliath, at Six Flags New England. Good lord Vekoma... Not only is the ride incredibly rough, it even manages to bash your head while going straight. Its probably the roughest steel coaster I've ridden.

I'm still recovering from the brain damage I received from Sidewinder at Hersheypark in 2011. Ugh. Never again.

That giant piece of crap makes Invertigo feel like Banshee.

The Bat at Canada's Wonderland. Though it really wasn't bad. It was just slightly less fun than Boomerang at Darien Lake or the Carolina Cobra at Carowinds.

For what it's worth, the Carolina Cobra is actually a wonderful coaster despite being a cookie cutter boomerang.

Invertigo is my least favorite. Boomerangs are all created equal (bad). I don't think I would have loved them even if I was young.

I loved Invertigo when I was young. It was one of my favorite coasters at KI at one point and I had no problem waiting in the long lines caused by its low capacity. Now though? No thanks.

Definitely Goliath at Six Flags New England. I chipped a tooth on that thing! Its probably the top 5 roughest coasters I've been on. The drop facing down is great, but after that, the ride is totally unbearable.

EDIT: Not to mention, the ride sounds like a F-16! The ride ops in the station have to wear ear muffs to deal with the sound all day!

The one at KI

Boomerang at Knott's is only just slightly better than Invertigo...not by much though.

Nearly all the Vekoma coasters I been on I don't really like anyway.

I have rode even more Boomerangs since my last post. My opinion still stands. I will say even though I thought Carolina Cobra at Carowinds was by far the best of the worst coasters.

I Rode Invertigo yesterday. Boy was it rough! Of course, the rain pelting my face probably didn't help matters.. ha! I think I've only got another few years left of my youth before that thing starts to tear my head apart...

They're not called Headbanging Vekomas for no reason. Most of their coasters, in my opinion, are rough. Except for maybe Rockin RollerCoaster Staring Arrowsmith and maybe not the aggressive Big Thunder Mountain Railroad.

I was not upset Stinger at Dorney was not running while we were there.

The only suspended Boomerang I've been on is Invertigo at Kings Island. There's a reason I've only ridden it twice over the years.

Like Lora, I rode Carolina Cobra at Carowinds a few weeks back, and surprisingly that was the most enjoyable Boomerang I've been on.

Andrew, not a fan of anything that is made in Vlodrop, Netherlands...

^ Perhaps a go on the Seven Dwarfs Mine Train, Rockin' Roller Coaster, or the newer iterations of Big Thunder Mountain Railroad would change your mind?

Yes. I have been on Rock N' Roller Coaster at Disney. That one slipped my mind. I actually enjoyed that one.

I have not been on Expedition Everest. Last I was at Disney was 2007.

In general, I'm not a fan of Vekoma.
