What will you see and do at the Stratosphere Tower?

The inside observation deck is ideal for anyone not too keen on heights, where climate control and floor-to-ceiling curved windows make you feel safe.
There are three heart-pumping rides at the top of the Stratosphere Tower, positioned a whopping 800 – 1000 feet above the ground.
Shoot up into the air at 45 miles per hour on the Big Shot, which catapults dare-devil riders up to the top of the tower’s mast.
Meanwhile, on Insanity you will be dangling over the edge of the SkyPod, spinning at 3Gs on the end of a giant mechanical arm. Maybe save dinner until afterward!
Finally, with X-Scream the clue is in the name. This is a roller coaster ride with a difference, one that teeters on the brink of the tower before propelling you head-first over the edge. Look down if you dare.
The famous SkyJump will earn you serious bragging rights as you face your fears head on. Take a leap of faith over the side of the tower and plunge to earth at up to 40 miles per hour during the controlled descent.
