Vampire operated here from 1990 to 1999.   Since 2000, it has been Flashback at Six Flags New England.  It was originally built in China in 1985 and operated as Boomerang at the Star Lake Amusement Park, but the ride was quickly sold to America.  The story floating around is that the Chinese were too scared, no one wanted to ride it, and the park couldn't make any money with the coaster!

The ride is a standard Vekoma Boomerang with three inversions.  It occupied the spot of land Road Runner Express later occupied.  The large building in the background is the Kentucky Exposition Center, part of the Kentucky State Fair.
