Ive rode 1 BOOMERANG (now dismantled) and 2 SLC (one custom and one shenlin). Ive never rode the standard SLC rig. Luckily for me though the Shenlin was brand new at the time (kumali at flamingo land) and was very pleasant indeed. The custom was Jubilee Odyssey and even rode this brand new but can't really remember it well. However in the last 7 years or so Jubilee Odyssey is very bumpy and rattly and the trains dont seem to last 2 minutes.

Before I came here, I used to average 1 SLC every 4 years. Quite proud of that, I was. I ain't no ho. Same with Boomerangs - I only had 3 of each, see.
This year alone I've added 2 SLC's (Walibi Belgium & Movie Park Germany) AND 2 Boomerangs (Walibi Belgium and Walibi Holland). Not to mention another SFC (Movie Park Germany) and another junior Boomerang (Raik).

I feel the need to go and wash.

I seem to have only ridden boomerangs at parks beginning with W:

Wonderla Bangalore
Walibi Belgium
Walibi Holland
Wiener Prater

It's a shame I don't have the West Midland Safari Park one to add to the list! The Pleasurewood Hills one is the only "Extreme" coaster in the UK that I haven't ridden - I can't bring myself to go all the way to Lowestoft just for another boomerang. Plus it would ruin the W thing.
I actually can pick a favourite here - the trains on the Wiener Prater one are really nice and only have lap bars so that's a clear winner.

Standard SLCs:
Southport/Blackpool
Walibi Belgium
Walibi Holland (prototype)
Heide Park
Terra Mitica
Gardaland (extended)

  6. Zoomerang, Lake Compounce: Best looking boomerang
  7. Sidewinder, Hersheypark: ok
  8. Carolina Cobra: ok
  9. Zoomerang, Alabama Adventure: ok
  10. Boomerang, SFFT: not good
  11. Boomerang, Knotts: bad
  12. Flashback, SFNE: quite bad
  13. Boomerang, WOF: really bad
  14. Goliath, SFNE: absolutely horrendous; more painful than when I split open my leg and got 22 stitches

Ugh... that list we're not so keen to update.

It's all very well updating the B&M count, but come on, people, you have to update the sh*te as well. It goes with the hobby I'm afraid.

2 new Boomerangs - the one at Worlds of Fun and the one at Six Flags St Louis.
The one at Worlds of Fun was actually ok, the paintwork looked fresh and shiny and the ride wasn't too rough.
The one at Six Flags St Louis was gross though. Looked grotty, rode grotty and my word - the jolt when the second lift hill engaged? There's an uncoupling in that ride's future, swear to God.
That brings my total up to 7. Eww.

1 new SLC - T3 at Kentucky Kingdom. To be honest, I don't think they're that bad overall. Some are rougher than others, but in the grand scheme of things, there's much worse rides out there. This is the first one I've ridden with the newer vest restraints, and yeah, I think they're slightly better than the old OTSR's, but not much.
Brings my total up to 6.

Also got my first Invertigo - the one at Kings Island. Again, it was ok, no major issues with it personally. It's a Boomerang crossed with an SLC, what do you expect it to be like??

Got another SFC too - also at Kings Island, which I think brings me up to 4 in total.

The shame, oh the shame.

Seems mean lumping SFCs and Juniors in here with the general vibe of the topic, they ain't bad (except that awful one with OTSRs).

Got a small selection of other SLC manufacturers:
1. Soaring Dragon and Dancing Phoenix (Beijing Shibaolai) - Wanda Nanchang (alright)
2. Flare Meteor (Golden Horse) - Fantawild Shenyang
3. Twister (Beijing Jiuhua) - Quancheng Euro Park (awful)


Suppose I need to go get myself an Invertigo.
 
My heart always sinks when I realise I'm going to a park with one of these horrible creations. Still, a cred's a cred.
A few years back I read somewhere that the least horrible seats on a Boomerang are in row 7. Whether it's true or not I dunno, but that's where I've headed ever since.
Boomerangs
Speed of Sound - Walibi Holland (the only one that I've ever considered a second ride on. I didn't though, obviously.)
Boomerang - Hafan y Môr Holiday Park (the first large-ish coaster I was ever on. I don't remember it being particularly rough, but it was pretty new at the time. Now relocated from Wales to Baton Rouge of all places.)

Boomerang - Knott's Berry Farm
Boomerang - Six Flags Fiesta Texas
Boomerang - Six Flags Mexico
Boomerang - Worlds of Fun
Flashback - Great Escape
