Stratosphere Las Vegas review – X-Scream, Insanity, Big Shot and Sky Jump

The rides on top of the Stratosphere Tower and Hotel in Las Vegas are not for the faint hearted, but they are very much an adrenalin junkie’s dream!

Best rides in Las Vegas?Even just being at the top of the tower can be a bit daunting for anyone that is not keen on heights. It is the highest freestanding observation platform in the USA, and stands some 1,149 feet high (which means it is about 100 stories high).

As it is situated down the bottom of “The Strip”, without any other tall building around, it is hard to appreciate how tall it is – until you are up it.

There are 3 rides right at the top to challenge, and thrill, both those that ride them, but also those watching those crazy enough to go on them.

You buy a pass to go up the Tower where you have amazing views from both inside and on an outside balcony. There is a coffee shop, gift shop and the rides.

I have videoed the three main rides so here’s my Stratosphere Las Vegas review for you.

This ride takes people over the edge of the tower, leaving them peering down the 100 stories drop to the ground.

This ride not only takes people over the side of the tower, but then spins them round.

Big Shot las vegas ridesBig Shot

This ride shoots riders even higher than the 100 stories.

Sky Jump

There is also a new addition where you can be strapped into a harness and are winched down (rapidly) to the ground. Check out this crazy video.
