Stratosphere Tower Rides

Among the fun rides at the Stratoshpere Tower is SkyJump, a great attraction for thrill seekers who aren't afraid of heights. SkyJump is located on Level 108! Wow, that's the highest view in Vegas! Here's how SkyJmp works: you're strapped into a harness, attached to the "descender machine" and step off a narrow platform only to plunge 855 feet straight down! Yikkes! 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 needs be said!
