I recorded this video tonight (4/22), just as the sun was setting at Knott’s. Tomorrow, BOOMERANG closes forever, so it seemed appropriate to see it riding off into the twilight.
Yes, the coaster is scheduled to close Sunday, 4/23/17. If you’re a fan, you have one more day to experience it.
As for me, I never rode it, but I did ride its predecessor, the CORKSCREW, which I loved as a kid. Today, I’m not a coaster fan, so in my dreams, this would turn into a cool dark ride, like my old favorite KNOTT’S BEAR-Y TALES. But alas, Knott’s is being tight-lipped about what’s in store to replace BOOMERANG. Word on the street says it’ll be another coaster. We’ll see…stay tuned.
