SkyJump Las Vegas is a must-visit attraction for the adrenaline junkie looking to indulge in some of the city’s wildest adventures.
Therefore, it’s no surprise that the center holds the Guinness World Record for the highest decelerator descent at a dizzying height of 829 feet (253 meters).

This ride typically involves participants on a vertical zipline with the ‘free fall’ beginning on the 108th floor of the famous tower. The exhilarating experience, coupled with the rush of the cooling breeze against your face, is certainly one of the best ways to experience the sights and sounds of Las Vegas.
Here’s what you need to know before you sign up for the ride at SkyJump Las Vegas. Before taking the jump, participants are taken through a brief safety lesson before getting fitted into a jumpsuit. The next step involves getting attached to what is known as the ‘descender machine.’
A qualified instructor will walk with the participant to the edge of a tiny platform from where one takes the scream-inducing leap more than 100 stories to the ground. Since safety is a priority for the team at SkyJump, there are guide wires that will prevent you from swaying off course.
Just before landing, the ‘descender machine’ is programmed to slow down to ensure that you have a smooth landing. There is an exciting surge of emotions that you will feel on landing, one which will perhaps have you signing up for a second ride. Bonus points too for keeping your eyes and soaking up marvelous views of the Strip down below!
SkyJump Las Vegas offers daytime, sunset, and night-time SkyJumps, and there is the option of taking a photo package or wrist video package to save the memories!
