    New Coaster for Adventuredome in Las Vegas ... Are you "El Loco"?

    World-Class, Record-Breaking Roller Coaster Speeding to the Adventuredome at Circus Circus Las... -- LAS VEGAS, Feb. 7, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --

    LAS VEGAS, Feb. 7, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Coming soon to The Adventuredome at Circus Circus Las Vegas, roller coaster fans get ready for negative G drops, gravity-defying turns and over-the-edge twists! Only the second of its kind in the United States, El Loco, The Adventuredome's newest roller coaster, will offer thrill seekers a unique and exhilarating ride experience in a custom and compact design guaranteed to excite all.


    The Adventuredome will begin construction on El Loco in the coming weeks and the coaster will be ready for screams and thrills in December.
    Designed by S&S Worldwide, Inc., the world's leading manufacturer of vertical and family thrill rides, El Loco roller coasters are famous for their record-breaking steep first drops and one-of-a-kind moves. With only five other El Loco coasters worldwide, the addition of the ride to America's largest indoor theme park will provide Vegas visitors an exclusive opportunity.


    "The addition of El Loco to The Adventuredome is a significant move in our efforts to entice a new generation of roller coaster lovers," said Tom Nolan , vice president of operations for The Adventuredome.


    Accompanied by a customized soundtrack, El Loco will deliver new and unique coaster elements that drop, turn and twist the rider in ways not previously experienced. Riders will ascend 70 feet before diving over and under in a backwards motion, delivering a negative 1.5 "vertical-G". The ride's unique elements, including a 45-degree outwardly banked turn, a greater-than-straight-down diving drop, and a 180-degree turn that races over the edge into a barrel roll, will provide guests with an extraordinarily thrilling adventure. Offering one of the smoothest rides in the business, El Loco's innovative, four-person cars feature an open design which will give riders the feeling of flying during the 75-second ride along 1,300 feet of track.


    The El Loco design pushes the limits of what can be accomplished in a small footprint, maximizing space with a soaring, eye-catching structure set to be the new focal point of The Adventuredome.


    While The Adventuredome says "hola" to El Loco, it waved "adios" to the iconic Rim Runner. The new action-packed El Loco will take the place of the Rim Runner flume ride, one of the park's four original attractions.


    "We are committed to reinventing The Adventuredome experience with fresh and exciting rides for new and repeat guests," said Nolan.

    I have watched the Adventuredome grow since its opening when it was known as Grand Slam Canyon. Though I cannot ride most of the attractions, the Rim Runner was one of the few I could. I remember one time, we rode it 6 times in a row! (I'm too old for that now ) Good thing it was summertime and 10 minutes outside dried us off!

    Sad to see one of the originals go, but it makes sense for the overall feel of the park.

    And another flume bites the proverbial dust. I'm sorry but this isn't enough to get me back in that place. The last time I went to Adventuredome there was a litererally a fight going on at every corner. Not what I call a pleasant enviorment.

    I've been on the one at Indiana Beach, and it was quite fun. Looking forwards to having one a bit closer to me.
    Does anyone even bother with signatures anymore?

    It's not awesome compared to real amustment parks, but serves a great purpose for the mass of LV visitors. It offers a lot more than the one ride diversions many of the hotels have or had. That is why Buffalo Bill's and the Stratosphere tried more rides and at one time MGM Grande too.

    The Adventuredome provides something for visitors with kids. LV may not be a kid place, but with tens of thousands of visitors there are plenty that need youthful stuff rather than slots and stage shows.

    From what it looks like, it will be like the Mumbo Jumbo roller coaster at Flamingo Land here in the UK. Below is a point of view:

    The new Star Wars plot summery:

    Episode 7: Luke discovers that Darth Vader is not his father, and goes on a search for his real father

    Episode 8: Darth Vader is resurrected and goes on Jerry Springer, claiming he is Luke and Leia's father

    Episode 9: Princes Leia is not Luke's sister, making him furious (we all know why...).
