Specific Type: Boomerang
Located right as park visitors come into Six Flags Fiesta Texas, Boomerang stands out pretty well with its light blue track and orange support color scheme. This attraction can be a first coaster of the day for many people as it is literally jumping out of them right as they enter through the turn styles coming into the park for a fun filled day. Some guests may choose to hit up Goliath, as it is just to the left of the park entrance. Guests will enter Boomerang's queue just by walking straight towards it, but the queue takes them all the way around the back end ofBoomerang and up the ramp to the loading station.
Being a popular Vekoma design that many park visitors have likely seen at several different parks in different color schemes,Boomerang is a good fit for this park and has been in operation since 1999. This coaster reaches a maximum speed of around forty-seven miles an hour and reaches a maximum height of almost 117 feet. It takes about one minute and forty-eight seconds to complete a ride on Boomerang which consists of going frontwards, and then backwards through the same set of track. With just three inversions, riders are actually turned upside down six times due to this repeating process through the ride.
Once all loaded up in the ride's only operating train of seven cars and maximum capacity of twenty-eight riders, they are hoisted up backwards up the reverse lift hill. Once at the top, the train is released, and gravity takes over for the first half of the coaster. The train rushes back through the station it was moments before and future riders hear nothing but loud screams and thundering from the maximum speed of the train passing through. Once the train has passed through the station, it immediately enters the cobra roll, where riders go through a half loop and half cork screw, two different times. Following this, they go through the third and final inversion of the track, which is just a standard loop. Once through the loop, the train catches onto the lift and is hoisted up again higher and higher. It is then released backwards, and gravity once again takes over. Riders then experience the loop backwards, through the cobra roll backwards, then finally rush back through the station and partially back up the original lift hill from the very beginning of the ride. The train is finally lowered slowly back into the station and the train unloads for the next set of riders waiting in line.
