How crazy is this? The roller-coaster ride El Loco opening Tuesday at Circus Circus Adventuredome lasts only 72 seconds but promises to pack those six-dozen seconds with plenty of thrills as it achieves speeds of up to 45 mph.
Here are some of the stats:
-- After a 90-foot ascent, riders plunge into a hairpin turn and a dive that produces a G-force of 1.5
-- The 45-degree outward curve includes a doughnut roll
-- A 240-degree barrel roll zooms into an inverted drop
Each seat in the four-person cars will have a built-in surround-sound system. A custom soundtrack features hip-hop, Latin and rock for your listening pleasure, assuming the music isn't drowned out by the screams.
El Loco is included in the $29.95 price of a Premium all-day ride pass. Single ride tickets cost $10.
