Stratosphere Tower Thrill Rides

If you’re a thrill seeker, then head to the top of the Stratosphere tower and experience one of the highest thrill rides in the world!

The SkyJump will wisk you off 108 floors up at a high speed bungee-type ride!

Take a ride on a mechanical arm that stretches 64 feet out from the top of the tower, and find yourself hanging in mid-air, then it spins you at a speed up to 3 g’s. Yikes 🙁 

Seats reach angles of 70° so you’ll find yourself facing straight down!

Vegas Thrilling Rides

X-Scream is a huge roller coaster that spans out 27 feet from the side of the building. Big Shot moves at 45 mph catapulting you up the tower mast and down again reaching 4Gs on the way up and negative Gs on the way down.

High Roller

This new attraction is the world’s tallest observation or 🎡 Ferris Wheel, reaching 167.7 meters in height!  
This huge wheel consists of twenty eight egg-shaped capsules that are attached to the outer rim of the wheel.

It’s much like that of the 🎡 London Eye 🎡 in London, England.
