It looks like they took the standard El Loco layout, knocked it on it's side and kicked it around a bit, then stood it back up. Basically, crazy. Crazy good though :)

And think, all that being thrown around with just a lap bar. Coaster nerd heaven.

Looks great, thanks for the photos! Do they have any estimate on an opening date?

^I think they're leaving that open to "December".

Thanks for keeping us up to date. Planning a trip to Vegas the week before christmas... Fingers crossed it's opened by then. I've been dying to get on an El Loco.

They've targeted December, but it's too soon to set an exact date. I'm tentatively planning to go down there in January, so barring a big set back it should be open and hopefully I'll finally get my Canyon Blaster credit too.

I'm sure this will be the best coaster in Vegas, especially with no future for Speed.

Not much competition with the only others being a Togo and a short Arrow Looper. I personally like Manhattan Express, I don't find it to be as rough as most people, but clearly El Loco is going to be in another league.

^I would also prefer Manhattan Express right now if only for the location. I am still sad I missed Speed by a month... :?r

Hi everyone! Update from the Adventuredome today! Lots of progress on El Loco the past week. The lift appears to be half way completed with only the bottom of the first drop, bottom of the twist and dive and the transfer track left to be installed until the main "arena" of track installation is complete. The lift appears to be about the same height if not shorter than Canyon Blaster's lift but remember El Loco will indeed have a larger drop. Enjoy the photos! Oh and thanks to the Minions for helping to build an awesome coaster for us all!
