Does anyone think that the boomerang is an enjoyable/sickening ride?

ABSOULETLY!!! Going up the lift hill out of the station makes you realise how bad you need those OSTR's. I don't know why everyone complains. They are an awsome experience! Going the a loop backwards is a blast!

My favorite Coaster is named after Poop, and I actually like Boomerangs! What is wrong with me?

I've been on one Boomerang (Knott's), and it was much more than I expected. It was smoother than I thought it would be, making for a very enjoyable ride. I don't know how all Boomerangs measure up to the one at Knott's, but if they are similar then yes, they are enjoyable.

i have been on 15 different vekoma boomerangs and believe me after one ride they are just not thrilling anymore. I usually skip them if i am at a new park, I think the only reason why most people go on these is to add to there track record.

First ride is great, but then after about 6 rides later, it gets very boring.

I rode the Boomer @ KBF 8 times during the day. Not once did it get boring. I mean being pulled up so high while only being held by an OSTR. Going through 3 rather smooth inversions in the blink of an eye, and then doing it again Backwards!. It is such a fun ride and I found it to be so much smoother than what I have heard from other Buzzer's. I mean I got more headbangin' in the Boomerang of Alpengist than I did during the Boomerang of Boomerang!

They are pretty good at first, butthey do get boring after a while, and of course they are everywhere. I did like the layout for the queue for the Boomerang at La Ronde. The queuq is in the middle of the coaster, so the trains are flying all around you while you wait.

They are good, but not great. Average is the best way to describe them. The GP loves them, obviously.

I enjoyed the boomerangs I have ridden, although I wouldn't praise them too highly. They are there for your entertainment, and that's what they provide.

I've only ridden a Invertigo (Face/Off PKI) and I wan't too crazy about it. It was really rough and uncomfortable, but the ride itself is pretty cool...I hope Deja Vu is smooth and comfortable...

I have probably been on boomerang at Knott's 100 times. While I agree that it's not the most intense ride out there, I find it to be quite fun.

The Mind Eraser (Boomerang) at the old Geauga Lake was my first -- great ride! It was the first time I went backwards, and while going forwards wasn't that much of a thrill, going backwards took my breath away. Gotta love it!

I find The Flashback at SFOT pretty cool.My fave is the backwards part, one thing it does have is a lot of headbanging, but I still like to though!!-------------

I've ridden Mind Eraser at SFWoA and FaceOff at PKI. I've enjoyed both of them. I also like the Screemin Demon at PKI.

No. They're rough and hurtful.
