Re: NEWS: Circus Circus proposes adding 5.5-acre water park

OK, I may be going out on a limb here, but are there people here that DON'T think the Adventuredome is trashy?

I think on it's own, its a cool little park, but unless they keep it perfect and in tip top shape, I see it having trouble attracting Angelinos. With all of our 'high end' parks here in So Cal, I don't think we find the place very interesting, and it's always completely dead when I visit. Perhaps it appears a little nicer to travelers from other parts of the country, but in my (and my friends) opinion, the place has always been kinda dumpy feeling and unfinished.

I agree with others about taking the money for this weird pool oasis and using it to either vamp up the leaky dome, or put it towards imploding the rapidly aging property.

I just don't understand this. For the last two years, Circus Circus has been telling us Adventuredome was getting a mass upgrade, including a new coaster, and then they scrap it in order to build a water park when two are already being built within a 20 minute drive. What were they thinking? Adventuredome is a good park but desperately needs to be fixed up. I guess we'll have to wait a little longer.

^That's just how the suits running Vegas think. Once one resort does something, you can bet the farm that every other property said company has will get one too and all of the competition will jump on the bandwagon with their own version until the market is way past saturation. "Why build something different when we can let someone else's market research do our work for us?"

So, in other words, it's exactly like every other industry!

Considering ProSlide aren't providing anything for the announced water parks in Vegas, I really doubt that's what they are doing.

Surprised no one has mentioned it but a snippit in PArk World and a update or two on Screamscape seem to point to Adventure Dome getting a custom S&S El Loco soon

^Hmmm, interesting. Not sure where they would put it but I could be cool if the incorporated the big ol' fake mountain in some way like they did with Canyon runner.

Why do I still have a donkey title???

Looking forward to more news on this, especially as I really enjoyed Steel Hawg and I would think they've only gotten better (at least assuming the newer restraints come standard). I guess I have some time to decide whether to hold off on visiting 'til it opens, or go before then and sweep it up later when it does. It's like how I always go back and forth on whether I should try to go out of my way for Desperado, or to wait for Speed in case it make a comeback.

^^^Yeah, I can pretty much confirm that they will be getting a custom S&S El Loco in the place of Rim Runner's splash down pool.

^So am I to understand that Rim Runner is being removed. I wouldn't be surprised, it was looking pretty beat last time I was there.

^Yes. The removal of Rim Runner has been a strong rumor for years now, looks like it's finally happening.
