The only indoor coaster I have been on. It is a Vegas classic. I rode this before the Stratosphere was erected, before New York New York crossed the Mississippi, and before Nascar visited the Sahara for a well placed need-for-speed.

Sure, it is not the best in Vegas. But first bungee jump at AJ Hackets across the street for a warm up, and then it is better.

When in Vegas - it is a must ride. It is history that is bound to be imploded to make room for a new Cirque Du Soleil show. Ride it before it dies.

It is definitely fun and will not disappoint. But dont expect miracles here, it is an older indoor coaster.

Not as themed, anticipated, or executed as well as it should have been. The coaster itself is a little bit too short, leaving you a tad bit dissapointed. Re-ride value is decent, but you might want to keep a few aspirin handy, as this one is jerkier than it should be.

Um...at least the temperature is cool. :-)
Overall this coaster was just ok. It had its moments of fun, but it wasnt really that thrilling (although it was when I was 11, so this could be a good "family" coaster, like Jaguar) There are better rides in Las Vegas (although this one is cheaper, which could be another plus.)

Its quite short, but it was good fun. The double loop was great, the double corkscrew was OK. Cost me $5, which is a lot cheaper than the other rides on the Strip. It was also a lot smother than I thought it would be. Definitely the best value, and worth a ride.

WAY over rated. What with all the advertising I would have excpected more. And it actually looks like alot of fun, when youre not on it. The drop is way too short! The double loop element is pretty cool, but still not great. And theat little hill after the loops hurt! After the turnaround you go into a double corscrew that imo were some of the most lame corscrews Ive been on! I didnt even feel them. After that theres some more pain, and no more drops or inversions. Its cool b/c you go into the structure and its pretty dark, but other than that, after the second loop its pretty boring. I gave it an 8 though b/c despite the poor layout and pain, its a nice attempt at a thrill coaster, and considering what the park has, its not too too bad.

Good ride, packed more of a punch than I had expected. Going through inside the canyon is pretty cool and the corkscrews are great.

This actually exceeded my expectations. it was a lot of fun. it is a little short but i guess thats because of space. The drop is fun even tho its not at all big. then the double loops. my favorite part was the surprising amount of airtime you get comin out of the second loop. totally unexpected. then you have the double corkscrews and the helix. Definately worth riding in Vegas.

The Canyon Blaster is a steel sit down roller coaster with inversions (4). It was built by Arrow in 1993. It is 94' tall, 2,423' long, and it has nice theming and scenery. It is fast, fun rerideable, the capacity is large, and the ride duration is long.

its a pretty rough ride, but its pretty fun going through the canyon. its also short, but i can understand that because they were short on space. go up a lift, over the rim runner water ride, do a little pre drop, around into the real drop, into the double loops, do a turn into the double corkscrews, just a few more turns in and around the canyon and its back at the station.

This is a double looping Arrow. A wholly forgettable ride in a rather poorly laid out setting. Located in The Adventuredome, a domed amusement park featuring a handful of rides. Its at Circus Circus resort & casino. One of the older and dumpier hotels on the strip.
