In 2021 a new Shuttle-Family-Coaster by Gerstlauer Amusement Rides opened in the australian amusement park "Luna Park Sidney" with the name "Boomerang".
Right after the individual restraints close, the twenty riders can expect the first surprise of the rollercoaster. The train starts to move backwards and climbs the first hill slowly. From up there all riders will have stunning views of the whole amusement park and the beautiful landscape surrounding it.
After a few seconds of thrilled waiting, the train rushes down the hill, past the waiting guests in the station and enters a wild course featuring banked curves, airtime and sudden changes of direction. At the end of the course the train climbs a second hill, slows down and stops one more time. This time the riders will see nothing but the end of the track and the sky.
The following part of the roller coaster ride is unique in the history of Gerstlauer Amusement Rides. The train travels the whole course to the station – backwards! There, fail-safe magnetic brakes stop the train full of happy riders.
