AOL Travel Editor’s Review

Still the tallest structure in Las Vegas (and fifth tallest in the US) at more than 1,149 feet, the Stratosphere Hotel & Casino made real estate out of its rooftop with dare devil rides that raise hairs even if you don’t have a thing about heights. One of the top things to do in Las Vegas for adrenaline junkies, this is an ultimate high, literally, at 1,000 feet above Las Vegas Boulevard: The Sky Jump—a bungee leap off the lip of the needle is the latest mainliner. Then there is Insanity, The Ride, named for the condition riders must be in to climb onto this contraption that is aptly described as an inverted centrifuge. It takes passengers and spins and flings them at 3 Gs over the edge of the tower faster and faster, and up to an angle of 70 degrees until they are literally facing downward, looking at the city below. Then, it’s X-Scream, a high-tech, high altitude teeter-totter; and the Big Shot for a blast up the needle of the tower. A $35.95 pass takes care of all rides all day.
