Boomerang

A round-trip 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 938 feet of track at nearly 60 miles per hour? And what if we threw in two mind-ripping inverted loops and a corkscrew to get in your way? You’re gonna fly through this monster and then return to the starting point.

First you and your fellow tribesmen are going to pile into a long, sleek train which will waste no time in yanking you backwards up to a spiking 125 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 corkscrew and a vertical loop. Now that you’re warmed up, how does the number 5.2 sound? Because that’s the number of Gs you’ll take as you then conquer another massive 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. You’ve been through a lot, and there’s still more to come. 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 two more vertical loops, and another corkscrew you’re gonna have 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!
