SkyJump, Stratosphere Hotel and Casino
If the idea of plummeting 855 feet toward the Las Vegas Strip at about 40 mph sounds more like entertainment than a bad dream, the SkyJump Las Vegas at the Stratosphere Tower and Hotel is waiting for you take the leap.
The ride begins with a short safety lesson before you throw on a custom jump suit and head to a small platform more than 100 stories above the ground at the top of the Stratosphere. Once you bravely take a step into the air, guide wires keep you on course and a machine slows down your descent before impact with the pavement.
The entire ride, from preparation to landing, takes 30 minutes, but the memory of jumping off a building—and living to tell the tale—will last a lifetime. Jumps cost $100 per person. Plus, it's only $50 for second-time jumpers.
While you're at the top of the tower, you can enjoy Stratosphere's other three adrenaline-inducing rides: Insanity, X-Scream, and Big Shot.
