You can usually tell how scary a ride is by how loud the screams are. But the Canyon Blaster will freak you out so much you might be left speechless.
The Canyon Blaster zooms through a variety of sharp twists and turns (making the Pepto pink tracks aptly colored). Once you're strapped in for this wild ride, the double-loop, double-corkscrew indoor roller coaster offers views of other Adventuredome rides such as The Sling Shot, Chaos and a new roller coaster El Loco (opening in February 2014) -- that is if you can keep your eyes open.
While it's not known for its steep drops, the Canyon Blaster is mighty fast and reaches highway speeds of up to 55 miles per hour. There's also a portion of the ride where it gets dark and you don't know what to expect next.
The ride isn't exactly the smoothest experience, so be aware of your head moving around a lot. Once you climb out of your car, there's a bench right by the exit so you can catch your breath.
Even if you rode the Canyon Blaster back in your younger days, it's just as exciting now.
It's also a quick trip at less than two minutes. So if you really want to step out of your comfort zone and have a blast, you may enjoy riding twice -- once in the front seat and once in the back.
