LAS VEGAS, Feb. 7, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Coming soon to The Adventuredome at
Circus Circus Las Vegas, roller coaster fans get ready for negative G drops,
gravity-defying turns and over-the-edge twists! Only the second of its kind
in the United States, El Loco, The Adventuredome's newest roller coaster, will
offer thrill seekers a unique and exhilarating ride experience in a custom and
compact design guaranteed to excite all.

The Adventuredome will begin construction on El Loco in the coming weeks and
the coaster will be ready for screams and thrills in December.

Designed by S&S Worldwide, Inc., the world's leading manufacturer of vertical
and family thrill rides, El Loco roller coasters are famous for their
record-breaking steep first drops and one-of-a-kind moves. With only five
other El Loco coasters worldwide, the addition of the ride to America's

efforts to entice a new generation of roller coaster lovers," said Tom Nolan,
vice president of operations for The Adventuredome.

Accompanied by a customized soundtrack, El Loco will deliver new and unique
coaster elements that drop, turn and twist the rider in ways not previously
experienced. Riders will ascend 70 feet before diving over and under in a
backwards motion, delivering a negative 1.5 "vertical-G". The ride's unique
elements, including a 45-degree outwardly banked turn, a
greater-than-straight-down diving drop, and a 180-degree turn that races over
the edge into a barrel roll, will provide guests with an extraordinarily
thrilling adventure. Offering one of the smoothest rides in the business, El
Loco's innovative, four-person cars feature an open design which will give
riders the feeling of flying during the 75-second ride along 1,300 feet of

The El Loco design pushes the limits of what can be accomplished in a small
footprint, maximizing space with a soaring, eye-catching structure set to be
the new focal point of The Adventuredome.

While The Adventuredome says "hola" to El Loco, it waved "adios" to the iconic
Rim Runner. The new action-packed El Loco will take the place of the Rim
Runner flume ride, one of the park's four original attractions.

"We are committed to reinventing The Adventuredome experience with fresh and
exciting rides for new and repeat guests," said Nolan.
