Genre: Attractions

Location: Skypod at the Stratosphere



This is the leap of faith to end them all. A heart-pounding, scream-inducing, open-air plunge from 855 feet above the Las Vegas Strip. Skyjump, powered by Mountain Dew, is the highest decelerator descent attraction in the world. When you take the jump you and your bravest friends will plummet towards the landing pad at speeds topping 40mph before safely landing. It’s a one-of-a-kind thrill you’ll never forget. Skyjump riders must be 14 or older, Riders between 14-17 must be accompanied by a parent or guardian who must sign an authorization waver. Photo ID required. Attraction not recommended for guests with physical, mental, and/or medical limitations.


Extreme screams are all part of the fun when you plunge 27-feet over the edge of Stratosphere Tower at 30 miles per hour on X-Scream, the world’s highest thrill ride. If you can manage to keep your eyes open, you’ll glimpse amazing views of the Las Vegas strip below as you dive headfirst over the edge, then freeze and dangle weightlessly 109 stories in the air before being pulled back to safety. Oh yeah, after being shot over the edge and pulled back, you’ll be blasted over the edge again! Riders must be at least 52” tall.


A giant mechanical arm lifts you 64-feet over the edge of the Stratosphere Tower then spins you and your fellow copilots with the force of 3-Gs into a mind-blowing 70-degree tilt. Insanity is the extreme vortex ride that spins riders nearly 900 feet above the Las Vegas Strip. Imagine the most amazing views of the Strip while spinning at 3Gs of pulse-pounding force – you’d be insane not to ride Insanity! Riders must be at least 52” tall.

Big Shot

It was the shot heard across the world. The Big Shot changed the thrill game forever as the original “world’s highest” thrill ride by blasting riders a staggering 1,081 feet up into the Las Vegas sky. Over several heart-stopping seconds, the Big Shot catapults riders 160-feet up to the highest tip of the Stratosphere Tower at 45-miles per hour. Riders then hover weightlessly for a moment before falling back down, experiencing negative G-forces on the descent back to the launch pad, their legs tangling over the edge the entire ride. Attraction not recommended for guests with physical, mental, and/or medical limitations. Must be at least 48” tall to ride.
