Adventuredome at Circus Circus Las Vegas

The Adventuredome is located inside the Circus Circus Hotel in Las Vegas. One of the few hotels that still caters to families in Las Vegas the Circus Circus is a perfect choice to get out of the heat and enjoy some great family fun.

Visitors will be happy to discover that the adventuredome provides a huge assortment of activities from within it cavernous climate controlled dome. The highlight is by far the Canyon Blaster roller coaster which is the only double looped and double corkscrew ride in the U.S. If you’ve been on the Manhattan Express roller coaster at the New York New York hotel, you’ll find the Canyon Blaster to be just as, if not more exciting.

Another great ride at the Adventuredome is the Rim Runner Water Plume ride, or typically called the log ride. This log ride comes to a pretty exciting finale with a four story descent into a big splashdown that’s a real crowd pleaser. There are several other rides that require mention, like the Inventor ride which sends victims, or should I say riders hurdling and spinning into the air. There is also a bumper cars area, a carousel, a ferris wheel and a swinging pirate ship.

Check out Adventuredomes Extreme Zone where you can participate in trampoline bungee jumping or rock climbing. Or you may want to spend some time at the laser tag arena or batting cages. There is also a clown themed Imax experience called the Fun House Express.

Finally the Adventuredome has a wide variety of smaller kids rides and carnival type games where you can try winning one of those six foot tall stuffed bears you’ve always wanted.

The cost of admission is free and ride tickets are $16.95 if you are over 48″ and $12.95 for those who are 35″ to 48″ tall.
