Looking for thrills in Vegas? We want to share with you 7 not-to-be-missed attractions in Sin City.
INSANITY THE RIDE
The highest observation tower in the States and the highest building in Las Vegas, The Stratosphere, offers Insanity the Ride. Climb in! At about 1000 feet above ground, enjoy a unique view over the city if you can keep your eyes open.
In the same tower, three other attractions are also available. You can be propelled headfirst with Xscream, a kind of giant teetor-totter in the air, enjoy Big Shot, a thrilling 1000-foot Drop tower and if you are brave enough, the highest commercial decelerator ever, Skyjump.
2000 S Las Vegas Blvd.
Access to the tower: $20 for adults, $12 for children. Each attraction: $15, Skyjump: $119.99.
VEGAS INDOOR SKYDIVING
You want some thrills even though you are scared of heights? Try this skydiving experience indoor. Of course, the view has nothing to do with the one you get if you go on top of the Stratosphere, but you still get a thrill! Fly during about one minute three times thanks to a vertical wind tunnel: little by little, you will be more confident and you might succeed in performing some figures. A staff member is always there to give you advice and ensure your safety. A really good attraction if it’s rainy!
200 Convention Center Dr
Open every day from 10am to 8pm.
Have you ever seen Freemont Street from above? You need to try the SlotZilla zip line. Fly from this 12-story slot machine, either from the lower line (77 feet) Zipline or from the upper one, Zoomline (114 feet) both really nice if you want to pretend you are a superhero.
