The Stratosphere Tower

The Stratosphere Tower

The Stratosphere Casino, Hotel & Tower has become a one-of-a-kind landmark in the Vegas skyline and, at 1,149 feet high, its tower is the spot for the ultimate view of Las Vegas and offers the highest thrill rides in the country

The Tower Rides

Among the fun rides at the Stratoshpere Tower is SkyJump, a great attraction for thrill seekers who aren't afraid of heights, is also located on Level 108. Adventurous visitors are strapped into a harness, attached to the "descender machine" and step off a narrow platform only to plunge 855 feet straight down. In addition to SkyJump, the Stratosphere boasts a number of other hair-raising attractions including the Big Shot, a seated, shorter but equally thrilling ride, and X Scream, which extends you over the ledge of the Stratosphere Tower -- and leaves you there. The stop is only for a few seconds, but it's long enough to make you appreciate attractions on the first floor. A fourth ride is called Insanity-The Ride. Nothing more need be said!

1. SkyJump

 

Do you ever question your sanity? You might want to before you get on this ride. But as they say, just do it. Stop with the questioning, the doubts, the fear...take the dive off the 108th floor of the Stratosphere Tower with SkyJump--it's a total rush.

SkyJump is the heart-pounding, scream-inducing, open-air leap from 829 feet above the Las Vegas Strip. You'll zoom toward the landing pad at speeds topping 40mph, while the crowds below gasp and applaud your insanity....ehm, we mean your bravado! You can SkyJump during the day or brave a nighttime jump. See age and height/weight restrictions below.

The Big Shop is billed as the Vegas amusement park ride that touches the sky. You'll be strapped onto the Big Shot and be shot 160 feet in the air at 45 miles per hour! There's no better view of the Las Vegas Valley! In a matter of seconds, the Big Shot thrill ride catapults 16 riders from the 921-foot high platform up the Tower's mast to a height of 1,081 feet and down again. Before you catch your breath, you'll be shot back up again at forces unmatched by other Vegas thrill parks! Experience a gut-wrenching four 'G's of force on the way up, and feel negative 'G's on the way down as your legs dangle in the Las Vegas skyline.

4. X-Scream

 

Ever played on a giant teeter-totter, 866 feet above the ground? With X-Scream, you can!

X-Scream propels you and several other riders headfirst, 27 feet over the edge of the Stratosphere Casino, Hotel & Tower. Try not to scream when you go over the edge ? you don't want to scare the other riders! After being shot over the edge, you'll dangle weightlessly above the Las Vegas Strip before being pulled back and propelled over again for more.
