Crazy about coasters? Adventuredome will introduce a whole new level of ‘Loco’ this December

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 Adventuredome’s newest roller coaster, El Loco, it means you’re not loco … at all.

Ascend 70 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!

Construction begins on El Loco in the coming weeks and the coaster will be ready for all rational, level-headed riders in December. Designed by S&S Worldwide, Inc., there’s only a handful of other El Loco coasters in the world (one other in the United States). This coaster will replace the Rim Runner flume ride, one of Adventuredome’s four original attractions.

Yes, I’m from Las Vegas. But I’d like to clarify a few things: I don’t live in a hotel and I’m not a showgirl. I put my pasties on one nipple at a time, just like everyone else. I’m a regular girl who plunges off the side of ridiculously tall Las Vegas landmarks and writes about it for a living. I also ride roller coasters, hang at the spa, shoot holes in zombies and take art lessons from bottlenose dolphins. You know, normal stuff. My career as a journalist and copywriter has led me out of Vegas and around the world, but the 24/7 normality of Las Vegas sucks me back in every time. Am I oblivious to the plethora of slot machines everywhere I go? Sure. But that’s because I’m distracted by all the pretty lights. Follow me on Google+ and Twitter.
