haha yeah I know that's why, plus they take up small footprints. I was just messing around. I love Six Flags, got 2 Deja Vu rides at SFGAm today. Just irritating when they think it's okay to run one train on popular coasters on busy days.
My A: They're inexpensive, They're fun to ride on for me (I can't hate going 5.2 G's and I can stand the head banging) and much of the GP. It goes forwards and backwards, and It's has proven itself 40 times to be a great ride for any small to medium size park (To low capacity for a large park). *** Edited 6/3/2005 8:07:06 AM UTC by Sawblade5***
Six Flags bought them for the same reason that lots of other people bought them. They provide inversions for a realatively low cost. They have a small foot print. Almost any park can find a spot to put one. And, they are popular with the GP. Less than 1/4 of the Boomerangs are at Six Flags Parks
Vekoma has built over 40 of these which is one reason why we enthusiasts don't like them. We like to get variety when we travel to new parks.
Invertigo's such as Two Face at SFA (by the way my ride count for the season on Two Face is up to 9 with no breakdowns!) are a lot better then the stander boomerangs. Hanging below the track going backwards disorients you, A LOT! seeing the spines of the track fly by you just makes your mind go crazy. and facing your friend if you choose face 2 face seats is also very fun. I remember my brothers face when we dropped backwards, it was insane! And also the Invertigos come relativly cheap and are not the most reliable, but they are VERY smooth compared to most Vekoma's!
