It is unlikely as you already have an airtime based coaster (ghostrider) and the land is long and thin. I could imagine a mack ride like lost gravity being built there.

The answer to every question about Knotts is Ghostrider. You come off and count your head, just to be sure. Magnificence in wood and now even better with the steel track.

So today is Boomerang's last day of operation. I doubt anyone is particularly gutted. :P

I've been wondering what'll happen to the ride. Seeing as the only reason it's being removed is space, could it be relocated? I can see them shipping it somewhere like Valleyfair to make one of these parks look less deprived.

The last major thrill coaster to be added at Knott's was Silver Bullet in 2004. Hopefully something good replaces Boomerang.

I doubt that a major thrill coaster will replace Boomerang, its in quite a small area. The only possible thrill coaster I could see in its place would be a Gerstlauer Euro Fighter/Infinity Coaster or a Mack Big Dipper. I personally think a new flat ride will go in its place.

As for its new location, its most likely be a Cedar Fair park. I'm placing my bets on ether Valleyfair, Michigan's Adventure. But they could just give it to Cedar Point so they can get to the most coasters in a park title.

I can't see Cedar Point getting it, they'll have RMC mean streak for 2018. The other parks need it more (even if it is a second hand boomerang).

As mentioned above, there is a little more space than it initially seems, as a nearby flat and restaurant have gone. This is what they have to work with:

Plenty of room for something if they get creative. Space is so scarce at Knott's, I can't exactly see them removing a perfectly satisfactory coaster and flat ride to replace them with a single flat.

I can't see the Boomerang going to Cedar Point. Not only would location be an issue, it would just be so out of place and unpopular there. I would agree that it's most likely between Valleyfair and Michigan's Adventure.

RMC are currently manufacturing a Raptor coaster - I wouldn't be surprised if that's what replaces Boomerang...
