The STRAT Thrill Rides are the epitome of adventure for the thrill-seeker who is excited at the prospects of an adrenaline rush (the tower was previous named the Stratosphere). Las Vegas may be the ultimate party destination, but there are quite a few people who visit the city purely for its thrilling experiences.
That is why the STRAT does not disappoint.

SkyJump is an exciting option for visitors who would like to take on the free fall from 829 feet up in the sky. The ride involves getting fastened onto a vertical zip line and hurtling down towards the ground at speeds of up to 40 miles an hour. The use of what is referred to as a ‘descender machine’ ensures a smooth landing. Remember to soak in the fantastic views of The Strip and, if you are lucky, spot a number of the city’s top attractions.
Take on Insanity that does just that – tests how much you can push your limits! This ride rises to 68 feet up in the air, right at the edge of the 1,149-foot tower for good measure. Riders are then spun into a thrilling cascade of turns, allowing them to experience up to 3Gs of force in the escape-proof seats. With various ride options, there is so much fun for the adventure lover.
X Scream at the Stratosphere is an adventure of a lifetime. Located 900 feet above the ground, the ride’s design incorporates a roller coaster for the perfect scream fest. Big Shot, on the other hand, shoots riders to a height of 1,049 feet above the ground just before a heart-pounding free fall that creates a sense of extreme weightlessness – in which case you may just consider yourself a human rocket!
STRAT Thrill Rides are an unforgettable way to experience Vegas’ gleaming and adventurous facade.
