Knott's Boomerang roller coaster inverts thrill-seekers six times, three times while traveling forward and three times while going backwards, in just under two minutes. Designed by Vekoma, Boomerang has three inverting elements: a vertical loop and a boomerang, also commonly known as a cobra roll. Two 125-foot tall lift hills are located at opposite ends of the 875-foot long track. Since the track does not form a complete circuit, Boomerang is labeled a "shuttle coaster" since the train must travel both directions, shutting the riders away from and back to the station.
