El Loco roller coaster debuts at Las Vegas' Adventuredome
Written by Robert Niles
LAS VEGAS — We returned to The Adventuredome at Circus Circus in Las Vegas for the first time in a long time today, for the debut of the indoor amusement park's new El Loco roller coaster, from S&S Power.Tweet
At just five acres, Adventuredome's a tight fit compared with the outdoor theme parks we typically cover here at Theme Park Insider. So don't look here for rides with a massive footprint, and El Loco's no exception. But while the coaster might look at first glance like just another Wild Mouse, a closer inspection reveals some unexpected, un-mouse-like elements, including overbanked turns and a couple of inversions.
Let's go to the video, as S&S Power Project Manager Chad Severance tells us a little about the unique features on this coaster, then ride along with some POV video from my trip on the coaster this afternoon.
It's a quick trip, sure, but with some unique elements that will reward coaster fans when they're in Vegas. Located inside the Circus Circus resort, Adventuredome is free to enter, with rides available with individual ticket purchases, or through buying an all-you-can-ride wristband (by far the better deal).
