Where can I ride a roller coaster backwards?

Speed - The Ride at the Sahara

Every roller coaster in Las Vegas is different, and this one at the Sahara is no exception! This ride has you coming and going, in fact. The ride begins in the NASCAR cafe and shoots you right out of the hotel through a dark tunnel and into a large loop, right through the Sahara marquee and straight up into a 224-foot tall tower where you hang, thinking the ride is over. That only lasts for a fraction of a second, and then you're off to do the whole thing again, but backwards! Pretty scary, and pretty cool. Admission: One ride $10 * All-day pass $19.95 *Open Sunday through Thursday 11am until midnight * Friday & Saturday 11am until 1am.

This WAS a great coaster - however with the Sahara closing, this suggestion no longer applies.
