Daredevil Destinations: Stratosphere Riveting Rides

If you have never been to Las Vegas and you are someone who lives for danger and adventure then one of your first stops should be the the Stratosphere.  It is an attraction many people venture to see since it has a view worth dying for.  At the view point you do not go all the way to the top, but bring your camera because during both the day and the night it is a sight you are going to want to see.

Higher up on the Stratosphere is where the fun is located.  While you enjoy these rides, do not be surprised to hear people telling you, you are crazy from the look point because these rides should not be taken lightly.  The most popular attraction is the “Big Shot“.  Since the ride is already on top of the hotel, with the added height of the structure itself you will be over 1,000 feet in the air traveling at 45 mph.  It is not for those who are afraid of heights.  The other 2 rides also dangle its riders in the air with little to nothing below to catch the rider, it is all about the thrill.

The SkyJump is an additional cost and feature.  Here people can choose to subject themselves to a controlled free fall.  It is a popular option and spectators can regularly see enthusiasts taking the dive.

Choose your rides wisely and pick a friend to share the scary, priceless and heart pumping moments with. Once you are done here, consider one of the ample Grand Canyon air tours to take you to new heights on a different level because hey, who needs to keep their feet on the ground anyway?
