El Loco is a steel indoor roller coaster located at Adventuredome in Las Vegas, Nevada, USA. It was built by S&S Worldwide. Opened in 2014, it is the sixth El Loco model and the second to be built in the United States. The ride features two inversions and single car trains.

The attraction is located where the splashdown for Rim Runner, an Arrow Dynamics boat ride, previously stood.

Unlike all previous El Loco installations, the ride does not have a "beyond-vertical" drop. Instead, the drop is around 90 degrees steep.

Track arrived on-site in early September and the final piece was installed on December 12, 2013. It was opened on February 18, 2014.[2]
