Scream along a high-speed coaster track. Then do it backwards. Flashback features spine-tingling twists and heart-pounding turns. A cobra roll and outrageous vertical loop make up the majority of the twisted track you'll travel—in both directions.

This ride is fun, but you can find one of these at almost every amusement park in the USA. It gets old after a couple rides.
Flashback wins the award for the best boomerang I've been on. Granted that's not saying much, but I will go as far to say that this one is tolerable even in a non-defensive riding position.
Relocated from Kentucky Kingdom, Flashback stands out with its paint job, but I just don't like it for some reason. Anyway, lines can move slowly due to the shuttle nature of the ride, but they are generally pretty short.
My favorite seat like on all boomerangs is the back thanks to the first drop, which generally is the only reason I go on boomerangs. It gives a little free-falling sensation and is surprisingly fast. I came on expecting a bashing my first ride and found the first half to be glass-smooth. I was shocked, but could it keep it up during the second half? I was shocked and it did for the most part. There's some minor headbanging on the cobra roll, but other than that, none.
Thanks to the minimal headbanging, Flashback is easily my favorite of the Vekoma boomerangs I've been on. While not as good as many of the park's other coasters, it's worth checking out since it's a credit, and actually a decent coaster.
Favorite Seat: Back (7:2)
Favorite Moment: First Drop
Yet another Vekoma boomerang.
