Quick Boomerang Update from Six Flags St. Louis

The Boomerang is almost complete!  Since vertical construction started on Six Flags St. Louis' new coaster, aptly named Boomerang, the ride has gone up quickly.  That's to be expected, however, since these compact rides pack a lot of punch into a small amount of track.

The photo up top also shows off the shortened lift supports nicely, which I wrote about recently.  This view lets you compare to other Boomerang rides with ease.

I actually really like the look of the ride - sort of 'sunken' into the ground if you will.  The park utilized the landscape to achieve this, and although a somewhat small change it has altered the overall appearance of the ride in a unique way.

The ride is also set such that the eye-catching cobra roll element adjacent to the park's midway.  The vibrant colors they used are quite nice, too!
