Enjoy the best view Las Vegas has to offer at the Stratosphere Casino, Hotel & Tower, record-holder for tallest freestanding observation tower in the United States. With both indoor and outdoor observation decks, you’ll experience a 360-degree look at Sin City, including the Strip and the Valley. While you’re there, check out award-winning restaurants or one of the many bars and lounges. If you’re feeling brave, you can also complement your experience with a daring thrill ride!
The 3 Thrill Rides:
In a matter of seconds, the Big Shot thrill ride catapults riders from the platform up the Towers mast at 1,081 feet and down again. Before you catch your breath, you’ll be shot back up again at forces unmatched. You must be at least 48 inches tall to ride the Big Shot. This is a high-speed ride experience with high vertical g-forces at an elevated height. This ride is not recommended for guests with physical, mental, and/or medical limitations
Insanity (Attraction will be closed indefinitely due to maintenance)
Sit 64 ft out over the edge of the Skypod at a height of over 866 ft. This Vegas ride will spin you in the open air at speeds of up to three G’s. You’ll be propelled up to an angle of 70 degrees, which will tilt your body until you have no choice but to stare straight down! You must be at least 52 inches tall to ride Insanity.
A giant teeter-totter sitting 866 ft above the ground, X-Scream will propel you headfirst, 27 feet over the edge of The STRAT. There, you will dangle weightlessly above the Las Vegas Strip before being pulled back and propelled over again for more. You must be at least 52 inches tall to ride X-Scream.
You can also purchase a ticket for the Skyjump:
SkyJump powered by Mountain Dew is a heart-pounding, scream-inducing, open-air leap from 855 feet above the neon Strip and holds a Guinness World Record as the highest commercial decelerator descent facility.
