Las Vegas is where people come to feel like they’re on top of the world and they’re probably saying this when they’re visiting The Stratosphere. One of the most iconic hotel and casino in Vegas, The Stratosphere’s main attraction is the 1,149-foot Stratosphere Tower – the second tallest in the Western Hempishere. Visitors can take a trip all the way to the top and that’s where the real fun begins. If 1,149 feet isn’t enough altitude for you, Big Shot will shoot you up almost 200 more feet before freefalling back to launch. Insanity spins you 64 feet over the Tower edge as you dangle 900 feet above the street, while X-Scream catapults you headfirst 27 feet over the Tower edge. If you’re feeling completely reckless, you can even bungee jump off the edge.
