For many people, the best time to visit the SkyPod observation deck is around the time when the sun sets. The sky is bathed in hues of orange and red, making for the most enchanting views. What’s more, just as the sun sets, Las Vegas comes alive with its neon lights illuminating the Strip below for a delightfully contrasting set of views.
One of the things that make the STRAT’s SkyPod a preferred lookout point is the fact that the deck features angled windows in the air-conditioned facility. Therefore, the indoor deck is perfect for those who struggle with a fear of heights.
However, if you are looking for the quintessential Vegas adventure, you will love the outdoor observation deck, as well as the numerous thrill rides that accompany it. The outdoor deck is the perfect chance to scan the city through the different viewfinders, taking a moment or two to spot some of the city’s most iconic landmarks.
Are you making plans to host an unforgettable event? Why not host your group at the observation deck and treat your guests to the fantastic views of the Las Vegas Strip and the Valley for a memorable event? The deck caters for groups of between 100 and 2,000 people, and it is crucial to make a reservation beforehand.
Alternatively, spend some time at the Air Bar. The highest bar in all of Las Vegas, this is a must-experience for the party lover. With the club’s signature drinks and renowned cocktails on offer, there is no better way to enjoy the city’s spectacular views.
The SkyPod is open daily from 10am.
