Zoomerang

Zoomerang

Head to Bristol, CT, for Lake Compounce’s daring duo of dread, the Haunted Graveyard and the Zoomerang -- a roller coaster version of a boomerang. The coaster hauls riders up backwards, suspends them 125 feet in the air, then releases them through 3 heart-pounding cobra rolls. Just when the ride comes to a stop, it sends its riders on a return trip backwards! 960 1280

LeVampire

LeVampire

Cross the border into Montreal, and strap into La Ronde's LeVampire, Quebec's first inverted coaster!
