SkyJump
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. 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!

X Scream Thrill Ride at Stratosphere Las Vegas, Las Vegas, Nevada

X Scream (photo above)
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!

Big Shot Thrill Ride at Stratosphere Las Vegas, Las Vegas, Nevada

Big Shot
(photo above and below)
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.

Insanity
The Ride consists of an arm that extends out 64 feet over the edge of the Tower and spins passengers 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.
