Made a quick lap through The Adventuredome and the NebulaZ is fully built. Enjoy the photos below! It’ll be a nice addition to the park!  This is the bottom of Rim Runne

NebulaZ quietly opened at Adventuredome. Fun ride and a nice addition to the park. I don’t normally like spin and pukes but this ride was a lot of fun with bits of floater air. Visually this ride is s

Last weekend I decided to take a lap around the Adventuredome. The unannounced new ride (the model is a Zamperla NebulaZ) is now vertical and it looks like the ride’s queue will go through part o

Fright Dome not happening at Circus Circus in 2018

 

A longtime Halloween tradition will not be happening at Circus Circus hotel-casino in 2018.

Egan Productions, which owns Fright Dome, told 13 Action News that Circus Circus informed them that it will not be moving forward with the event this season.

 

The statement continues:

 

While we regret this bad news, we are grateful to the people of Las Vegas for supporting Fright Dome over the past fifteen years. We look forward to many successful Halloween events in the future.

 

No other details have been released.

Granted this is all twitter heresay, but what is being put out is that the producer of the event asked for more money in order to support his other venture (SAW escape room—-supposedly isn’t doing well) and MGM said no.

Looks like Freakling Bros. is going to be raking in the dough even more this year. Hopefully this will push some much needed business to Bonnie Screams, as well. That's a great haunt in a seriously awesome location that needs more traffic.

Some articles are stating that they don’t know if the ride was even in motion at the time so while the headline is obviously pretty alarming it seems like at this stage it could be anything from a guest flying out mid-inversion to someone getting sh*tfaced in the casino, going to the Adventuredome and then falling off of the ride platform. We don’t know much of anything yet.

guess there was an accident on El Loco.

 

"Circus Circus' Adventuredome closes El Loco Roller Coaster after person falls from it"

and they're using TPR's YouTube video of Kristen and friend riding, to show the ride in the story!

I have cousins who live in Vegas, and she did tell me (since she knows how much I love coasters), that local news is saying the woman was a rider, and the coaster was in motion when she fell out. Apparently the woman was taken to the hospital in "serious" condition. . but that's all my cousin knew.

 

googling didn't really turn up anything more recent than the other day tho.

In the TPR video, it doesn't look like the restraints have a seatbelt attachment? Am I missing it?

 

If not, then this will become Exhibit A on why I don't mind that extra belt being connected.

Yes, shocking headline. Although it's hard for me not to feel bad for injury victims (except, you know, all the blatantly stupid ones), apart from that I'm relieved to know it was someone who clearly could not have ridden safely, and absolutely should not have been permitted to ride if her disability was obvious.

Okay.... I 100% feel this is on the ride op at the time. Like, ride op training 101 you go over the “tri-pod” rule. After the Six Flags accident, I’m pretty sure, the “tri-pod” rule became one of those requirements that manufactures say must be met prior to riding.

 

The “tri-pod” rule states that every rider must have 3 functioning limbs. . . Either two legs and an arm, or two arms and a leg... But they had to have at least 3 (of their own limbs) prosthetics didn’t count. So if the ride op noticed she was a double amputee they shouldn’t have let her ride to begin with.... ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

I plan to visit on Saturday November 30 at the end of the night. I was planning on going on the Monday, but Adventuredome is closed for rehab.

 

I fully expect that to be one of the park's busiest days considering it's the weekend after Thanksgiving. On a busy day at this park, roughly how long are the lines? I'm only interested in riding El Loco, Canyon Blaster, and (my first) Chaos). We're wondering if 2 hours is enough time to get on each ride 1-2 times.

So apparently a new thrill ride is coming this fall, has anyone heard any rumors?

 

There used to be rumors of a custom chance big dipper coaster coming here. Those fizzled out a while ago sadly

Where'd you hear that? The property is in the middle of changing ownership as well as the pandemic shitshow. I doubt they're adding anything new until late 2021 at the earliest.
