If you are looking for the most fun under one roof, The Adventuredome at Circus Circus has long been the place to go to enjoy rides, games and the circus! The Adventuredome is taking fun a new speed with the opening of El Loco, a new world-class roller coaster is now open and invites thrill seekers of all ages to experience a 72-second, adrenaline-pumping adventure complete with G drops, gravity-defying turns and over-the-edge twists.
Designed by S&S Worldwide, Inc., the world’s leading manufacturer of vertical and family thrill rides, El Loco’s soaring eye-catching structure offers a unique and exhilarating ride experience in a small footprint. Reaching a maximum speed of 45 mph, El Loco, which debuts February 18th, pushes the limits with unique coaster elements that drop, turn and twist riders around 1,300 feet of electric yellow track for a thrill-a-second adventure, including:
• 90-foot ascent followed by a high lateral G hairpin turn and a greater-than-straight-down diving drop producing a negative 1.5 “vertical G”
• Lateral floater that transitions into a 45-degree outwardly banked curve and doughnut roll
• 180-degree turn that races over the edge into a barrel roll
• Reverse 240-degree roll that zooms into an inverted drop before coming to a sudden and complete stop
Making this roller coaster experience truly unique, the El Loco small four-person cars give the passenger the sensation of flying with the innovative open-carriage design that allows the vehicle to make tighter and faster turns. Each seat also has a surround-sound system built in so riders can enjoy a custom soundtrack.
“El Loco offers our guests something they have never experienced before and is the perfect addition to The Adventuredome,” said Tom Nolan, vice president of operations for The Adventuredome. “This is the first place in the country where El Loco can be experienced indoors, which makes it even more exciting. Riders enjoy El Loco’s twists, turns and drops in such close proximity to our other rides that for an instant, they get the sensation that they may run into Canyon Blaster or even touch the top of the dome creating a truly thrilling experience.”
The new centerpiece of The Adventuredome, El Loco is the only indoor coaster of its kind in the United States and the second indoor El Loco coaster in the world. El Loco roller coasters are famous for their record-breaking steep first drops and one-of-a-kind moves. Worldwide, El Loco coasters can be found in Indiana, UK, France, Australia and China.
El Loco is included in the purchase of a $29.95 Adventuredome Premium all-day ride pass or a $10 single ride ticket. Passengers must be at least 48 inches to ride.
