Centrally located, Stratosphere Las Vegas is at the top of the
Las Vegas Strip. At 1,149 feet, the Stratosphere Tower is the tallest freestanding
observation tower in the US — and the tallest building
west of the Mississippi River.
Enjoy panoramic views of
the Las Vegas Strip and the surrounding valley. Visitors to the Tower are whisked from ground level to the observation
decks in less than 30 seconds in double-decker elevators traveling
at speeds of 1,800 feet per minute — or three floors a second.
Enjoy FUN thrill rides 100 stories above ground. The Stratosphere boasts
the World's Highest Thrill Rides — Sky Jump, X Scream, Big
Shot and Insanity the Ride.
The Ultimate Free-Fall
Get ready to scream — if you crave excitement and adventure, then this ride is for you! SkyJump provides the highest controlled free-fall in the world. It's similar to skydiving and base jumping — but this one's over Las Vegas Strip... day or night! Before the jump, riders are suited up, taken to the top of the Stratosphere Tower, connected to a high-speed descender,
and then taken to the edge of a platform where they step out and plummet 855 feet — that's 108 floors! — at a speed of up to 40 miles per hour... high above Las Vegas. What a ride!
At 866 feet, X Scream is the world's third highest thrill ride.
Shaped like a giant teeter-totter, X Scream is an open vehicle
that propels riders head-first, 27 feet over the edge of the
Stratosphere Tower and dangles them weightlessly above the Strip
before pulling it's riders back and over again for more!
The Big Shot thrill ride catapults 16 riders from the 921-foot high platform
up the Tower's mast to a height of 1,081 feet. Traveling at 45 miles per hour,
riders experience 4G's as they reach the very top, and feel negative G's on
the way down.
NOTE: Statosphere's High Roller Roller-Coaster is no longer running. It was the world's
highest roller coaster! At 909 feet above the ground, the High
Roller rocketed around the tower pod on 840 feet of track banking
sharply at 32-degree angles, traveling approximately 32 miles per
The Ride consists of an
arm that extends out 64 feet over the edge of the Tower and
at up to three 'G's.' As the ride spins faster and faster, the
riders are propelled up to an angle of 70 degrees. Riders will
experience the thrill of being flung over the edge of the Tower
and literally facing downward at the City of Las Vegas below. The
ride is programmable with various ride options. An unobstructed
view of historic downtown Las Vegas rewards those riders brave
enough to experience three 'G's' at a height of more than 900 feet.
