Boomerang Review

We're here at La Ronde to ride your Typical Boomerang. As you watch the train go through a cycle, you notice that the trains look in really bad shape. Knowing this, we brace ourselves for the worst. After climbing in the seat and pulling down the shoulder harness, you dispatch. Just hope that the harness does not pop open during the ride. Up the lift you go backwards. You get a pretty view of La Ronde and Montreal while going up the lift hill. And then, you drop. The drop is really fun and you get some nice speed. However, once you pull up into the sky as you enter the cobra roll, you brace yourself for the pain, but it's not there. It's actually alot of fun. Despite looking really old and being sponsered by French Canadian Chocolate Milk, it's actually smooth. After you navigate your way through the cobra roll with only mild headbanging, you go into a loop. The loop is fun and it pulls quite a lot of Gs. Then you climb up the second spike, as we climb up the second spike, you get a chance to recover, but then, you drop. Backwards you go. The loop is quite weird backwards. And then you go backwards into the cobra roll. While you smack your head a couple times, but it's still good for a Boomerang. And finally, it is over, You glide into the station. Despite it's old look, this Boomerang is actually smooth and fun. While this is one of the better Boomerangs, I would skip it until you have gotten the more important credits like Goliath and Vampire.
