Canyon Blaster Adventuredome is an amusement park enclosed under a giant pink dome at Circus Circus. Although indoors, it feels like a (small) full-sized theme park.

The park has recently added an El Loco coaster from S&S, but before that arrived the major rollercoaster attraction was Canyon Blaster. This is an Arrow Dynamics looping coaster, which navigates its way through simulated rocks - a canyon, I guess - under the Adventuredome roof.

With that roof giving everything inside a pink tinge, what better colour to choose for the track than pink? And if you're going for pink track, you may as well have pink trains too. In short, it's very very pink.

Other rides include a Chance Morgan inverter, a Zamperla Disk'O, a pirate ship, and even a 100 foot tall shot tower.

For the first decade, the park owned a large shoot-the-chutes flume ride called Rim Runner, but this was closed in 2013 to make way for El Loco.
