Canyon Blaster is an Arrow Dynamics indoor roller coaster located at Circus Circus in the Adventuredome in Las Vegas, Nevada, USA. It features back-to-back vertical loops and a double corkscrew, and ends with a helix inside an artificial mountain. The ride is similar to the Demon at California's Great America, buts differs in the color. It is also proclaimed as the world's largest indoor double-loop, double-corkscrew coaster.
Opened in 1993, Canyon Blaster is the second Arrow Dynamics coaster to be built for an indoor amusement park. The first was Chicago Loop at Old Chicago in Bolingbrook, Illinois, which was later relocated to Canobie Lake Park in 1987.
The ride is one of the two roller coasters at the park, with the other being El Loco.
Canyon Blaster opened on August 23, 1993 along with Adventuredome.
In 2001, the trains were repainted in a dark blue and deep purple heliochrome paint. However, it was changed to white and green livery somewhere between 2010 and 2011.
The loud sound coming from the lift hill can be heard throughout the entire park.
After exiting the station, the train makes a right turn, goes through a short tunnel and climb a 94 foot tall chain lift hill. Upon reaching the top, riders make a left turn before dropping 66 feet, reaching a max speed of 41 mph. The train then heads into two vertical loops. Riders hit a right turn, followed by a double corkscrew. After this, the train passes through a keyhole in the canyon, leading to an enclosed helix. Riders move right turn, hitting the final brake run and returning to the station.
- Baby Geniuses - part of fictional "Joyworld" theme park, Sly starts the ride with two scientists on board and restraints still open. Both fall from the ride.
- Criss Angel Mindfreak (Season 3 Episode "Rollercoaster") - a train "goes through" Criss' body while he stands on the track after the double corkscrew and Criss ends up in the front seat.
