I think that's the name of the coaster, it's in the Circus, Circus in Vegas!

Arrow Dynamics...haven't ridden it, but it looks like a nice little ride...a variation on their Corkscrew design.

as bizarre as this sounds, I thought it was a fun little ride, it is smooth at the very least. Seems smoother than most Arrow concoctions. Maybe that day I was so desperate to ride *something* since both High Roller and Manhattan Express were closed due to high winds.

It is smooth because of the maintenance staff. They are VERY good at making sure things stay running. I know for a matter of fact at least two came from Six Flags Magic Mountian.
The park will be closed next week monday the10th thru thursday the 13th. Its due to Comdex. They use this time to do the annual inspection and rehab so make sure you get down there as soon as it is over because it will be running at its best!

Not only do they maintain it well, but don't forget that it is indoors in an air-conditioned space. I think this may be one of the main reasons that it's so smooth.

Dude, that ride is awesome! I heard it was smooth, but I didn't think it'd be that smooth! The transitions into the corkscrew was flawless, and the ending has some very cool surprises. One of my favorite Arrow loopers.

Yes indeed, add me to the Canyon Blaster club. I was really impressed with this little Arrow Looper. It IS short, but a very good ride. It has two vertical loops back to back and a double corkscrew. It finishes up with a tight helix through the canyon , and did anyone else notice the amazing airtime when you come out of the second loop, just before the turnaround into the corkscrew? I thought I was gonna be ejected. And all the while its' 110 degrees outside, but 75 degrees on the ride. How awesome is that. It is a close tie between CB and Speed for the funnest Coasters in Vegas.
However, SFGAmDueHard, you could just check the Coasterbuzz database OR rcdb.com to find out manufacturers and statistics, rather than asking abroad. But its nice to hear from others who liked this ride.

i LOVE canyon blaster, its my favorite arrow looper :) its so good, i went on it over 100x in one day, i litterally went on it till my back started to hurt from all the g's, no headaches what-so-ever (i never get headaches tho, everyone who does IMO are wimps), go canyon blaster!

Canyon Blaster is an awsome ride. It was the first coaster I ever rode. (Besides the ones at Disneyland.)

It is a very fun ride. It is extremely smooth and it is quite exciting. Due to the buildings inside the dome it hides most of the coaster from your view while riding so you have to clue what is coming up. Only if all Arrows were like it...

When I took my son to Vegas, we hit the Adventure Dome specifically to ride Canyon Blaster. He wasn't much impressed when he first saw it, but was happily suprised after his first ride. The smoothness and the twisting through the "canyon" made it more exciting. We rode it front, back and center.
