Boomerang was a steel shuttle roller coaster located at Knott's Berry Farm in Buena Park, California, USA. Opened on April 6, 1990 the ride was a Boomerang model from Vekoma. The ride replaced the former Corkscrew.
On March 17, 2017, Knott's Berry Farm announced that Boomerang would close on April 23, 2017 at the end of the park's Boysenberry Festival. The process of dismantling the ride began almost immediately after it closed. It has since been shipped to the Netherlands where it will be refurbished.
