It twists, it turns, and it is sure to make even the most seasoned roller-coaster rider scream. The anticipated thrill ride El Loco inside Adventuredome will begin operating in late January, Circus Circus announced today.
The final piece of the 1,300-square-foot track will be laid this week, and one of the electric yellow cars is already on display inside Adventuredome as a sneak peek for fans.
The high-thrills coaster, which replaces Adventuredome’s flume ride Rim Runner, will feature a 90-foot Runner, will feature a 90-foot ascent with a “beyond vertical drop” producing a negative-1.5 vertical g-force, as well as a 45-degree outwardly banked curve and a 180-degree turn into a barrel roll on the track
