S.L.C. is short for "Suspended Looping Coaster". That's a standard 'inverted' coaster model that Vekoma offers as a sales product. So, yes SLCs are carbon copy coasters, but there are a few instances where a few are slightly modified to fit a park's needs.

Umm, according to your track record, you have ridden SFNE's Mind Eraser. That is an SLC.

A boomerang is a sit down shuttle type ride that has 3 inversions going forwards, and the same 3 going backwards. Here is a picture of a boomerang. An SLC is a full circuit suspended 5 inversion ride. Here is a picture of an SLC. Both are made by Vekoma. To confuse things, Vekoma also offers an inverted variation of the boomerang, commonly known as the invertigo. Here is a picture of that.

http://www.rcdb.com/installationgallery746.htm?Picture=7 is a picture of Vekoma's variation to the Invertigo.  These are new to this year.
Actually I think the model is called Super Invertigo and the production is GIB.
