History[edit | edit source]
Originally located at Knott's Berry Farm in Buena Park, California, USA under the name Boomerang, the ride opened on April 6, 1990 and is 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 was then shipped to the Netherlands where it was refurbished before being relocated to Indonesia.
In January 2019, it was announced that the ride would reopen at Trans Studio Bali in Indonesia.
