Escorpion is a typical boomerang steel coaster with two lift hills, a vertical loop and double inversion boomerang element. Riders are towed backwards out of the station up the first lift hill. The train is dropped from 125-feet and speeds through the three inversions forwards before reaching the opposite lift hill. The train is then towed up the opposite lift hill and repeats the course this time backwards for a total of six inversions. Escorpion is also unique since it was the very first Vekoma Boomerang ever manufactured. The ride was shipped to a park in Puebla, Mexico in 1982 where it sat until it opened at Reino Aventura in 1988.
