Thrilling Rides at Stratosphere Las Vegas
Check out the highest thrill ride in the world at the Stratosphere in Las Vegas!
The property's signature attraction is the 1,149 ft (350.2 m) Stratosphere Tower, the tallest freestanding observation tower in the United States.
The top of the tower has two observation decks, a restaurant known as "Top of the World" (revolving restaurant).
It also has four thrill rides:
- Big Shot at 1,081 ft (329 m) is the highest thrill ride in the world.
- Insanity, opened in 2005, at 900 ft (270 m) is the second highest thrill ride in the world; it dangles riders over the edge of the tower and then spins in a circular pattern at approximately forty miles per hour.
- SkyJump Las Vegas, a controlled descent, Bungee jumping-like ride that will allow riders to plummet 855 ft (261 m) attached to a high speed, descent wire. SkyJump opened on April 20, 2010.
- X-Scream at 866 ft (264 m) is the third highest thrill ride in the world.
