4 Injured When Six Flags St. Louis Boomerang Coaster Suddenly Stops


Note the train in the photo looks as if it has come off the track.

The Boomerang roller coaster at Six Flags St. Louis had an incident today involving guests on board when the coaster suddenly came to a stop mid-ride.

The incident happened at around 11:30 a.m. Friday. Guests were able to safely exit, but four guests were examined further.

The park was closed to the general public and was open for a special event involving elementary, middle and high school choirs for a Six Flags Music Festival.

Here is the official statement from Six Flags about the incident:

Boomerang did not complete its normal ride cycle causing it to stop at a mid-point location where all guests safely exited the ride. Our First Aid staff responded immediately and three guests were transported to a local medical facility as a precautionary measure. The safety of our guests is our top priority and the ride will be closed for a thorough inspection before re-opening.

The attraction has been updated on the parks website as “Temporarily Closed.”
