It is often said that crazy people don't actually know that they're crazy. So by that logic, if you choose to ride the El Loco in The Adventuredome at Circus Circus, it means you're not loco...at all.
Ascend 90 feet before diving backwards at negative 1.5 vertical Gs, zip through a 45-degree outwardly banked turn and a 180-degree turn that drops over the edge into a barrel roll while theme music plays in the background. Yeah, totally, completely sane.
With a 1,300-foot yellow track twisting and turning its way beneath the pink Adventuredome canopy, the ride features open-carriage cars that each seat four passengers.
Designed by S&S Worldwide, Inc., there's only a handful of other El Loco coasters in the world (including one other in the United States).
This coaster replaces the Rim Runner flume ride, one of Adventuredome's four original attractions.
