Vegas’ coasters have racked up more demerits than bonafides—they’re typically painful and expensive to ride—but Adventuredome’s new El Loco represents a reversal. Smooth, innovative and thrilling, the coaster sets itself apart from its Vegas brethren with its extreme drops, inversions and banking, and is only the second of its kind in the U.S. Bet you’re not missing the washed-up Rim Runner anymore. Adventuredome at Circus Circus, 702-794-3939. Daily, 10 a.m.-midnight, all-day passes, $17-$30; individual ride tickets, $5-$10.
