Boomerang, the ninth rollercoaster to open at Six Flags St. Louis, opens exclusively for the park's season pass holders on Friday, June 7. The coaster opens to all park visitors on Saturday, June 8.
Boomerang features a 28-passenger train which is pulled up 125 feet backward to the top of a lift hill and then released to propel riders through a half loop, a right half cork screw, a left half cork screw and another half loop, according to a park press release. Riders have just seconds to catch their breath before flying through a full loop and climbing another lift hill, eventually taking the train full-circle through the rolls and spirals again. The dual lift hills of Boomerang takes riders up over The Screamin' Eagle's first drop, providing a unique view of the park. Boomerang is located in the Illinois section of the park. Riders must be 48 inches tall.
