This is a notable roller coaster since it was the first one of its kind ever manufactured. However, it was not the first to operate. Boomerang was shipped to Rafaela Padilla in Puebla, Mexico in 1982, but sat unused until 1984. After two years of operation it closed and was sold to Six Flags Mexico (then called Reino Aventura) in 1987.

Boomerang is a thrilling, looping roller coaster designed for a compact footprint (289 feet x 98 feet). This shuttle coaster has two lift hills, one at each end of the layout and three inverting elements – a double Boomerang and vertical loop. On Boomerang thrill-seekers drop over 100-feet twice and get inverted six times in just under two minutes.

Seated in a seven-car train the ride begins with the train being towed out of the station backwards, up the 117-foot lift hill. Reaching the top, the train is released dropping forwards through the station to begin the Boomerang, immediately followed by the vertical loop and then climb up the second lift. After ascending the second lift, the train drops, repeating the course, but this time traveling backwards.
