Boomerangs in Pop Culture: Six Flags Malfunction Edition

Posted by Jessica

I don’t know how I missed this story: On August 19th, SFGate reported that the Boomerang Coast to Coaster ride at a Bay Area Six Flags was stuck in the “up” position for about an hour with 26 people on board (mostly children.)

True: a person who finds a “nerve-shattering” ride appealing – one that takes you through all the terror of a roller coaster, and then again, backwards – might not be daunted by chilling upside-down on a ride for an hour.  From what I can tell, the most serious “injury” was dizziness, and everyone received a free funnel cake for their troubles.  Whether or not they had the stomach to eat it was left unreported.
