Vegas may be known for a lot of things, but it excels in giving people a good time there – and kids are no different! Stratosphere Thrills is a great place to take those older kids on that Vegas adventure, because it’s just as much about families as it is about well…everything else!
It’s Vegas, and they don’t do things in halves, so let’s start with a record breaking attraction! How about taking on the “highest controlled descent” in the world? That would be Sky Jump!
This scream-inducing leap takes you off the Tower at 829 feet – and then you freefall at speeds up to 40mph. So you might have to be a little brave for that one!
Why not try Big Shot next? You can pull some “g”‘s just like a Top Gun pilot, and blast up to 160ft straight in the air! Then, you can feel the freefall even more as you head back to the launch. This one isn’t for the faint of heart either!
It doesn’t stop there! With Insanity, those brave family members can catapult headfirst 27ft over the Tower edge, and then dangle weightlessly 109 stories in the air. Eeeek! Then you just snap back to the Tower for more – if you dare!
Jutting 1,149 feet into the Vegas skyline, the Stratosphere Tower is the tallest observation tower in the U.S. and one of the most exciting attractions among Vegas Strip hotels. But that’s just the beginning. There is so much more that you can do there on your day out in Vegas, that the kids will realize that the city is just as much for them as it is for the parents!
And if you are feeling brave – the Stratosphere Thrills are just what you need!
