Crazy Train

El Loco awaits your freakout at Adventuredome


There’s a new reason to freak out in Vegas.
And it has nothing to do with your hotel bill, where your cellphone went, or why there's an IOU written in glitter where your credit cards used to be.

No, it has everything to do with El Loco — the new roller coaster at Circus Circus Adventuredome which is, true to form, pretty damn crazy.

As the only indoor El Loco in America and one of only six of its kind in the world, it’s the closest you’ll get to feeling like you’re flying. Short of jumping off the roof of said hotel.

It lasts just 72 seconds, but makes every second count with crazy G-force inverted drops, surprise 180-degree sharp turns, and reverse 240-degree rolls that will have you begging for mercy along 1,300 feet of yellow track.

Five years in the making, El Loco’s small four-person coaster cars and open-carriage designs allow for unexpected track turns and insanely sharper turns than anything you may have experienced as a kid.

And helping make the experience slightly less terrifying is a custom playlist, which you can rock out to via surround-sound headrest speakers as you plunge to your certain end.

‘Cause every near-death experience needs its own soundtrack.
