Keep on taking the poll

Desperado is definitely the best with Speed coming close to it. Manhattan Express is also quite a good ride. But it's also a very rough ride. High Roller has a nice view but the ride is really boring.
Big Shot is the much better thrill ride on the Stratosphere Tower.
I haven't ridden Canyon Blaster yet, so I can't say anything about it.

Speed: The Ride is definitely the best roller coaster in Las Vegas.

If High Roller was placed anywhere else, it would be extremely tame. However, it just happens to be on the edge of the tallest building in Nevada. I wouldn't pass that one up if I were you.

Well i want to do all of them but i want to know what is the best and what to look forward to

Definitively In las Vegas its Speed:TR, because Desperado is NOT in las Vegas...its at the Stateline 1 hour from there....

If you are comming From California driving i recomend you do Desperado first...because its allmost sensless to drive over there...(at least to me it is) and that way you save my favorite for last :)

Speed: The Ride is definitely the best roller coaster at Las Vegas because it has the most hype and is really intense. I haven't ridden the coaster yet, but I hope to ride it when I get to go to Las Vegas.

Is the Circus Circus theme park any good?

What rides are there?

I warn you, whatever you do, do not get tricked by the looks of Desperado. It is by far one of the most disappointing rides I have ever experienced. Disappointing not even so much in boring, but rough, painful, and jerky. I had a better time on Manhattan Express and even much more on Canyon Blaster (I think Canyon Blaster and Speed:The Ride are the top 2 coasters in Las Vegas), so that should tell you how bad it is. And this said after riding all the Vegas attractions. But then it's my personal opinion. And of all people who can tolerate rough rides, I have taken 11 consecutive rides on Windjammer before without the need of Aspirin or Tylenol and feeling at all beat up. So stay away from it and keep that spare $5! Ride the Turbo Drop instead. It's also $5 and much more fun IMO, even though it's a simple Turbo Drop. At least I had fun on that one...

Here are a few of the larger more noticable rides in the Circus Circus Adventure Dome theme park...listed from best to worse...

• The Canyon Blaster
- Double loop, double corkscrew roller coaster is VERY intense, much smoother after recieving new rolling stock and features 2 dives into the artificial canyon

• Chaos
- A Chance Chaos flat-ride that was added this year and scrambles riders on individual spinning axis that widly rotate as a mainframe wheel turns 360° at a 45° angle

• The Inverter
- An odd "not everyday" kind of flat-ride that was introduced in 1999. It sports a theater seating rider platform where a hydraulic arm attaches to one of the sides of the platform. The hydraulic arm propels the platform through 360° rolls in the air forwards and backwards through various rotations

• The Rim Runner
- An Arrow Dynamics Shoot-The-Chute flume that has a prehistoric dinosaur theme to it. The splash-down is 60 FT and results in a massive indoor 20 FT splash

• IMAX 3-D Ride Film
- Up to 1-3 seperate IMAX 3-D ride simulator films to choose from. Including the famous IMAX Funhouse Express™

• All other rides are not listed here...

I have been looking forward to riding Funhouse express since i saw it on the discovery channel, is it as good as it looks?

07-27-2001, 12:12 PM
Desperado and the Speed

07-27-2001, 02:50 PM

07-27-2001, 09:00 PM

Like I said before, don't go on Desperado. It hurts a lot. And I can tolerate Manhattan Express more than that...the log flume and Turbo Drop is better. I'm serious too. It was really painful and not fun at all.

07-28-2001, 11:12 PM
Now the MGM grand adventures park is closed right?

Was it any good?

07-29-2001, 05:22 PM
Desperado has a gr8 first drop but nothing else . Its also pretty painful at some points and is off the way.

It was an okay park at first, until MGM hotel management ripped away at some of the park to expand the outdoor pool area. The park featured one of the world's tallest sky-coasters, the Sky Screamer structure stood 250 FT above the ground. The park also had a very long and fun log flume, an elaborately themed river rapids flume, and a fun steel roller coaster, The Lightning Bolt, that twisted and turned over the canyons of the river rapids. It is too bad the park has been scrapped, leaving the only existing attraction in the park, Sky Screamer to VIP groups.

Yea, it's at the Hilton. But it's not really good. I've been on it. The indoor theming experience and pre-ride show is really cool, but the ride itself just dropped through the floor...
