If Flashback got some upgrades, it could be pretty cool. The Boomerang in Vienna with the lapbar-only trains and the tunnel between the cobra roll and loop was hella fun.

If they leave the current trains on it, they could find some heavy metal-type font for the logo, put some big guitars and amps around the station, build a giant hand doing the "devil horns" index-finger-and-pinky sign in front of the cobra roll, and call it "Head Banger"

They could play "Mental Health (Bang Your Head)" in the station.

It looks like Six Flags St. Louis accidentally leaked information about its 2013 addition...

http://www.sixflags.com/stLouis/info/MrFreezeReverseBlast.aspx

Six Flags St. Louis today announced plans to add a new steel coaster, Boomerang, to the park’s already extensive line-up of thrills. In 2013, Boomerang will become the park’s ninth coaster, bringing a new experience to guests with its unique combination of thrill elements. Six Flags St. Louis is currently home to more roller coasters than any other theme park in Missouri.

Boomerang combines a mix of twists, turns and loops unlike any other coaster experience at the park. The 28-passenger trains are pulled up 125 feet backward to the top of the first lift hill and then released to shoot out through the 1,650 feet of track at up to 50 mph. Guests will sail through a half loop, then into a right half cork screw, a left half cork screw and finally another half loop. And just when guests think they are done, the trains fly through a full loop before climbing a second lift hill. Staying true to its name, Boomerang takes guests full circle to where they began sweeping through the spirals, loops, twists and turns again.

“Boomerang puts a new twist, literally, on the coaster thrills at Six Flags St. Louis,” said Dave Roemer, Six Flags St. Louis park president. “We already offer more rollers coasters than any other theme park in Missouri, now we are adding new elements like the cobra roll and half loops to bring our guests new thrills!”

Boomerang is scheduled to open spring 2013 and it will be located in the Illinois section of the park.

Seems like they were describing an RCT coaster here...

What a very GP explanation of a Boomerang layout.

Hey, they're none the wiser and will eat it up. With any luck, they might give it new trains with restraints that don't make you feel like you're on the losing end of a bar fight.

Why do I still have a donkey title???

I'm really surprised they're actually calling it Boomerang, considering that Worlds of Fun has had one for over a decade now and calls theirs Boomerang. Worlds of Fun advertised the heck out of theirs when it was built, since that was the same year Six Flags built the Boss, so many of us in Missouri associate the name Boomerang with Worlds of Fun.

I wonder if they will go with the old train, or if they will upgrade to the new one. I haven't been on Carolina Cobra but I've heard it makes the experience much more enjoyable.
