Zydeco Scream is a steel shuttle roller coaster located at Six Flags New Orleans in New Orleans, Louisiana, USA. It has been closed since Hurricane Katrina hit the park in 2005 and is currently standing but not operating.
The ride first opened in 1990 as Boomerang at Parque de Atracciones de Montjuic. It left the park in 1998. It was painted white with green supports.
The ride was relocated to Six Flags New Orleans (called Jazzland at the time), where it opened on the June 10, 2000 as Zydeco Scream. It was repainted aqua blue with purple supports.
Hurricane Katrina hit the park in 2005 and Zydeco Scream was flooded. It has been standing but not operating ever since and it is now highly unlikely that it will ever operate again.
Zydeco Scream is an example of the much copied Boomerang. The train is pulled up the first spike, and released through the inversions. The train is then caught and launched backwards through inversions. It is then caught and brought slowly back to the station.
