4. Las Vegas: STRAT Tower - Thrill Rides Admission
Discover the adrenaline rush of a lifetime, 800 to 1,000 feet above the Las Vegas Strip. Voted the Best Amusement Ride year after year. Shoot straight up 160 feet in the air at 45 mph on Big Shot, spin at 3 Gs while dangling from the SkyPod on Insanity, and take a roller coaster ride like no other that teeter-totters you over the edge of the SkyPod from 866 feet high on X-Scream.
Strap into the Big Shot, where you’ll be shot 160 feet in the air at 45 miles per hour in a matter of seconds – all while overlooking the majestic Las Vegas Valley. Be catapulted from the 921-foot-high platform up the tower’s mast to a height of 1,081 feet, and then down again.
You’d have to be insane to want to dangle from the side of a building at more than 900 feet high. Sit in a massive mechanical arm that extends 64 feet over the edge of the SkyPod, spinning you in the open air at speeds of up to three Gs while being propelled up to an angle of 70 degrees.
A roller coaster ride like no other, X-Scream teeter-totters you over the edge of the SkyPod from 866 feet high, propelling you headfirst 27 feet over the edge of the tower. After being shot over the edge, dangle weightlessly above the Las Vegas Strip before being pulled back and propelled again.
