The Desperado Roller Coaster is an eye-catching attraction located just over the California/Nevada State Line in Primm – not because if its neon lights or lavish parties, but because it is among the tallest and fastest roller coasters across the country!
Take a stop along this road and set yourself up for the adventure of a lifetime. The remarkable 225-foot drop at a 55-degree angle is certainly not for the faint-hearted! If this does not scare you, then know that you are in for the ride of a lifetime.

The roller coaster drops through a tunnel, attaining speeds of almost 90 miles per hour! And just when you though the scream fest was over, a second plummet takes you through a 155-foot spiral.
To this speed and force in perspective, it helps to know that astronauts fly into space experience 3.5Gs just before taking off – this ride hit 4Gs! So you can be sure that the Desperado Roller Coaster is for thrill-seekers who are unafraid of a new challenge. Expect to feel your stomach flutter, and to experience a surge of emotions that may not adequately be captured in just one word!
Note that if you experience sensitivity in the back or neck, you may end up leaving the roller coaster feeling a little woozy. As a general guide, try and sit up as much as you can. It helps to stay still and just experience the thrill.
The Desperado Roller Coaster is open between Fridays and Sundays, from 12pm to 9:30pm (except Sunday, when it closes at 7:30pm).
