Fans of vintage Vekoma shuttle coasters will want to get their last rides in on Boomerang before Knott’s Berry Farm bids its final farewell to the ride on April 23.
Knott’s Berry Farm has announced that the final day of operations for the park’s veteran rollercoaster, Boomerang, will be on April 23. Riders will have one last chance to ride the reverse shuttle rollercoaster starting now and throughout the duration of Knott’s annual springtime Boysenberry Festival, which kicks off April 1-23.
The 27 year-old rollercoaster has been a staple in the recently renovated Boardwalk area, replacing the historic “Roaring 20’s Corkscrew” in 1990. Boomerang takes guests two minute ride forward and backwards on its 875-foot track.
No replacement for the attraction has been announced yet, but a statement from Knott’s says, “the park’s team will continue to assist in strategically advancing the park’s development as it continues to grow throughout the years along with our guests.”
