News & Rumors


Las Vegas, NV



icon_STOPPark News - (9/19/2023) Construction Update
    (8/6/2023) The Circus Circus Adventuredome first opened to guests on Aug 23, 1993 and will soon begin a 30th anniversary celebration. According to the local news the Adventuredome is expected to offer lower priced admission through Labor Day. A new attraction is also on the way for later this year.
(7/4/2023) According to a press release from Circus Circus, starting Wednesday July 5th through Labor Day guests wanting to visit the Circus Circus Adventuredome can purchase wristbands for 25% off during “Kids Happy Hour” from park opening through 2pm, Mondays through Fridays. For those wanting to play the Midway Games, Circus Circus is also offering a free $10 in play credits if you purchase a $40 play card.
    (3/6/22) I’ve got a quick update to our story about the removal of CHAOS from the Circus Circus Adventuredome. According to the latest report, CHAOS is already closed and being prepared for removal…. However, according to this source, they were told that the plan was to replace CHAOS with another ‘newer model’ CHAOS.
    As I previously mentioned, these style rides are no longer in production, with the original production timeline said to be from 1996 to 2007, and most park models have been removed over the years. As I understand it the CHAOS at the Adventuredome opened back in 2001, so after 20 years of service it looks like it was time to retire their original one. Of course it may also be possible to purchase a later model version from the used ride market and using the parts of the ride they already have, create a new ride with enough spare parts to keep in running for many years to come.
    (3/5/22) A quick warning, ticket prices to the Circus Circus Adventuredome just increased by 50%, with the price of the all-day wristband for adults jumping from $40 to $60.


2022 - New Rides, Food Court & More - (8/31/22) Circus Circus is full of surprises! According to a local news story the Adventuredome is set to debut THREE brand new rides just ahead of the Labor Day holiday. This list included the previous rumored Twistin Tea Cups along with Go Karts and a Kiddie Swings ride.
    (10/30/21) Another new ride is said to be on the way to the Circus Circus Adventuredome. According to our source the park will be adding something called “Twisting Tea Cups” to the site of the former Minor Mike kiddie coaster in the near future. I believe this isn’t too far from where the Chaos is located… and yes, the Adventuredome is one of the few locations I know of that still has a Chance Chaos, which offers a very wild ride.
    If you visit the ‘Dome, then keep an eye out for signs of the new ride to come.







icon_STOPLate 2023 - SpongeBob’s Crazy Carnival Ride - (8/30/2023) It has been confirmed that the new SpongeBob attraction coming to the Circus Circus Adventuredome will indeed be a new dark ride experience from Sally Dark Rides called SpongeBob’s Crazy Carnival Ride. According to the Dark Ride Database the new $6 million interactive dark ride is set to open late this year and will feature “vibrant sets, special effects, animatronics, and vivid integrated projections”, with new 5-passenger ride vehicles.
    The attraction experience will feature Mr. Krabs inviting guests in to try out a series of wacky carnival games, as well as featuring the evil Plankton who is still trying to steal the secret formula to his Krabby Patty recipe. The experience will be the first interactive SpongeBob themed dark ride experience in the world, as well as adding the first dark ride experience to the Adventuredome attraction itself.
    (8/19/2023) A few pictures of the big white construction walls now in place just outside the entrance to the Circus Circus Adventuredome for the new SpongeBob Squarepants themed attraction. Stay tuned!
    (8/13/2023) According to a Screamscape source, the new SpongeBob themed attraction coming to the Circus Circus Adventuredome later this year may actually be located just outside of the Adventuredome itself. From what I’m told, this means SpongeBob will be run separately from the Adventuredome, and have a separate admission fee. Since the Adventuredome switched over from a pay-per-ride model to a single-admission ticket (POP) to ride everything within the dome, this will actually allow those not willing to pay for the more expensive admission to the dome to come by and experience the new SpongeBob attraction by itself.
    It seems that the Adventuredome has seen some guest pushback on their current admissions model, as some guests with smaller children who may not be willing to ride the El Loco and Canyon Blaster roller coasters have been hesitant to buy the Pay-One–Price ticket for a full day wristband, and they want them to still be able to experience the new attraction when it opens. By the same line of thought, I know I myself passed on a visit to the Adventuredome on my trip to Vegas in January simply because my son and I just wanted to pop-in and ride the two roller coasters and leave, as we didn’t have time to invest a whole afternoon in the park to make the Pay-One-Price wristband worth while. So really… maybe the Adventuredome should consider offering some special admissions tickets that may allow riders to pay-per-ride, or at least maybe a thrill ride pass that just gives you a ride on each of the two coasterts.
    (8/6/2023) The Circus Circus Adventuredome has announced they will open a new $6 million SpongeBob SquarePants themed ride (by Sally Dark Rides) sometime in December. The attraction is said to be the first of it’s kind on the West Coast. I haven’t seen much about exactly what kind of attraction this will be yet, so if anyone knows more, please do fill me in.








icon_STOP2024/2025 - New Attraction Rumor - (9/19/2023) Crews seem to be in no rush to complete the project, but the removal of the Chaos ride at the Adventuredome is still an ongoing project. A reader sent in some new pictures taken on Monday showing the removal progress as well as new construction signs now placed at the entrance/exit to the Lazer Tag arena.
    (8/19/2023) A reader sent in some photos taken this week showing that the Adventuredome’s former Chaos ride is now in pieces and in the process of being removed.
    (8/13/2023) According to the latest rumor, another new attraction is being planned for the Adventuredome. This one will require the removal of the park’s Chaos (already in progress), Laser Tag arena and Mini Golf attractions to make the needed space available. If this is right, the needed space for this new attraction sounds quite large, and could run from one side of the dome to the other, going from the Chaos footprint on one end, through the pirate themed mini-golf and into the laser tag arena inside the lower half of the fake mountain. 
    As for what might be coming… we’ve no idea at all at this point. While I’d love to think these could all be removed for one large ride, it is always possible that the three attractions may simply be replaced by three other small attractions instead. Just something to keep an eye on over the next year or two.
