Adventuredome Overview

Circus Circus Adventuredome Overview

Circus Circus’ Adventuredome, formerly known as Grand Slam Canyon, is a covered amusement park housed in a glass dome at Circus Circus resort on the Las Vegas Strip.

The “dome” itself is made of panels of pink insulated glass, and since the entire climate-controlled park is contained inside the dome, it’s unaffected by the external weather and remains open year-round.

The attractions inside the park include rollercoasters, family rides, premium rides, a climbing wall, a miniature golf course, a video games arcade, a 4D theatre and more.

At the beginning, the amusement park was aimed mostly at children, but in recent years it has also tried to become more appealing to teens too.

This has seen the park’s popularity grow year after year, and it is now among the city’s best-loved attractions, especially for those visiting Vegas with children.

Stats

  • Total number of glass panes in the dome: 8,615
  • Total weight of each pane: around 300lbs (140kg)
  • Total surface area of the glass dome: over 350,000 sq ft (33,000 m2)
  • Total number of visitors per year: over 3 million
  • Total number of visitors: well over 50 million and counting

Rides

Since Adventuredome first opened, many rides have come and gone, with only one remaining from 1993. Here’s a list of the rides you can currently expect to find there:

Roller Coasters

Canyon Blaster was the signature attraction at Adventuredome when it opened as Grand Slam Canyon, and it’s the only ride that’s still open from back then.

Stepping on Canyon Blaster will give you the chance to ride the world’s only indoor double-loop, double-corkscrew rollercoaster, and with top speeds of 55mph, it’s sure to give thrill-seekers that hit of adrenaline they crave.

An Adventuredome favorite since it opened in 2014, El Loco is a hair-raising ride that famously incorporates a terrifying vertical drop, generating an impressive 1.5 vertical-G, along with two exhilarating dive loop inversions.

Each car is equipped with speakers that blast out a mix of “energetic hip hop, rock and Latin beats” that help to build the excitement – as well as partially drowning out your screams!

For fans of G-force, the Sling Shot is the ride to head for. Take your place in your seat as you are slowly lifted to the top of the tower. Then, after a few seconds of hanging in the air looking down, the Sling Shot drops and then rockets back up and down, exposing you to up to 4 Gs.
