Costa Rica News – For all of you that are looking for an adrenaline rush on the weekend, head over to Costa Rica’s Parque de Diversiones Amusement Park for your fix. Although it is no Six Flags or Space Mountain in Disney World, it will get your blood flowing.

The highest point of Boomerang, is 36 meters, which is equivalent to a 12 story building. Beside the rails are two stair cases of 175 steps each.
There are seven carts for up to four people secured with a belt and harness.
Huge generators inject enough power for cars “gain momentum”, which move the carts to precisely the highest point of attraction.
In seconds the seven carts will be fired at a speed of 80 kilometers per hour, curves and slopes to the other peak of the mountain.
Once up, the seven trolleys return to the starting point, but do so in reverse, so you will be traveling backwards through these twists and turns.
In total, it is 285 meters of thrills that lasts 120 seconds.
