Boomerang, or Le Boomerang, is a steel shuttle roller coaster located at La Ronde in Montreal, Quebec, Canada. It is a Boomerang installation from Vekoma.


The ride was originally constructed at Tivoli in Spain. This park would eventually never open, and the boomerang would be sold and send to Montreal to start operating at La Ronde.

When the ride begins, the train is pulled backwards up the lift hill, then dropped through the loading station and into a cobra roll and then a vertical loop. At the end of this cycle the train is pulled up the other lift hill at the end of the track, then dropped once again, allowing the train to go back through the layout backwards.
