6. Canyon Blaster

I got to finish the night last evening at my 3rd indoor amusement park Adventuredome! Attached to the “Circus Circus” hotel sits a 5 acre glass enclosed dome containing 25 rides,2 of which being outstanding rollercoasters in “El Loco” and “Canyon Blaster”. I’m really hesitant to call this the best indoor amusement park I’ve visited but i will say it blows MOA out of the water. They have a surprisingly fantastic top 2,Canyon Blaster easily jumped into my Top 3 arrow loopers. With how compact the layout is and how quickly each element is taken it feels so intense and out of control. I found myself greying out EVERY time by the 2nd vertical loop and the lighting effects mixed with the enclosed rock work really make the ride. El loco was just as good as its sister coaster “Steel Hawg” at Indiana Beach. The first drop is LOADED with ejector and both the dive loop and barrel roll provide INCREDIBLE Hangtime. I wasn’t expecting much from this park but it blew me away! Have you visited Adventuredome? If not what’s one park you went into with low expectations that ended up blowing you away? #adventuredome #canyonblaster #elloco #arrowdynamics #sandssansei #mallofamerica #americandream #indianabeach #steelhawg #lasvegas #nevada #circuscircuslasvegas #circuscircushotel #coasterenthusiasts #coastersofinstagram #ridewithace

Canobie Lake Park in Salem offers zero gravity rolls, banked turns, vertical drops, and loops on Untamed, and is worth the trip, for sure.

4. El Toro

Six Flags Great Adventure in Jackson houses El Toro, voted the scariest and most fear-inducing coaster in the state among several awesome choices.

05-15-15 // engaged in the path of adventure, instincts took over and led to the secret finding of an open door to the forgotten amusement park that was once a huge part of my life, which will be wrecked upcoming summer time 🌴 #childhoodmemories #thehurricanerollercoaster

Western Playland, in Sunland, added The Hurricane in 2015.

The ride is a steel windstorm-style coaster that doesn’t go really fast, but excels in g-force.

2. Cyclone

This iconic Coney Island ride isn’t the tallest or fastest, but it does feel like you’re going to die at any minute.

And how do you top that?

1. Intimidator

This steel coaster tops 232 feet, and stands watch over Carowinds in Charlotte.

I haven’t ridden the one in my home state of Missouri yet, even!

Y’all check these out and let me know how it goes, okay?
