Boomerang Coast to Coaster
A Round-Trip Ride for Warriors.
The boomerang was invented by ancient Australian tribes as the ultimate weapon. What’s the benefit of the boomerang over a plain old stick? When you throw it, it slices through the air and then comes right back to you. But what happens if you hurl a mega-ton steel train down 935 feet of track at nearly 50 miles per hour? And what if we threw in three mind-ripping loops to get in your way? You’re gonna fly through this monster and then return to the starting point.
First, you and 27 of your fellow passengers are going to pile into a long, sleek train which will waste no time in yanking you up to a spiking 120 feet in the sky. Hang out up there for a second, because you’re going to need all the momentum you can get to tackle this ridiculous flight path.
Then, just like that classic weapon leaving a proud warrior’s hand, you’ll be released powerfully forward down the track. You’ll take on a courage-zapping double inversion cobra roll. This cutting edge loop design flips you upside down, then traces a dip that looks like the head of a hooded snake, before flipping you over again. Now that you’re warmed up, how about conquering a 120-foot vertical loop?
You’ll get thrown through this so fast, you’ll be totally out of breath as the track curls up into the sky for a relaxing pause, hanging nearly straight up in the air. Sitting at the top of the rail, take a second to collect yourself, because now the Boomerang is going to live up to its name. You’re going all the way back to the beginning, the way you came—only this time you’re doing it backwards. That’s another vertical loop, and another double-headed cobra you’re going to take on as you fly right back to where you started. Then and only then will you truly be able to call yourself a proud warrior!
The greatest scientific minds in San Francisco have gone mad trying to understand a deadly and befuddling mystery.
Boomerang Coast to Coaster is one of the most popular rides in the park. What most people don’t know is that it hides a mystery so deadly and befuddling that some of the the greatest scientists in San Francisco have gone mad trying to understand it while others have simply died of fright.
Within the workings of this ride lives something so wretched and so elusive, not much more can safely be said. No one knows where It came from. No one knows Its demented goal. When it first arrived our best maintenance men tried to expel it. They’re all dead now. Or missing. Or zombified. Or retired.
This wicked invader raids the brain, melting and reconstructing the living tissue, replacing normal cells with the eggs of Its evil nature. The eggs hatch immediately and, repulsed by the pleasant thoughts and feelings they encounter, the hatchlings vomit up their disgusting essence. The foul liquid coats the minds of thrill riders and, by the time they reach the ground, the pain is so intense, the sound so loud, and the ideas so hideous, their original personalities are only vague memories.
Once-innocent riders – now possessed – are directed to mingle with unsuspecting friends and others in the crowd to spread their wickedness. We warn our visitors, but evil does as evil pleases.
