Speed is the roller coaster at Sahara. It features a 360 degree loop and a scary 200 foot climb straight up a tower. From the tower’s top, you‘ll roll backwards back to the starting point.

You can take a guided raft trip through the Black Canyon on the Colorado River. As you travel down the river, the canyon walls rise almost vertically against the water’s edge. You can see numerous warm springs and waterfalls on feeder streams and wildlife like Bighorn sheep and wild burros roaming in the canyon. Canoes, kayaks and rafts are all suitable for use in the Black Canyon. Motorised rafts are also available and the trip takes half the time in 3 hours. That is pure fun for your entire family.
