The Stratosphere is a tower, hotel, and casino located on the Las Vegas Strip in Las Vegas, Nevada. Its tower is also the tallest observation tower, and the 5th-tallest structure, in the United States, as well as being the tallest structure in Las Vegas. The top of the tower has two observation decks, a restaurant known as “Top of the World” (revolving restaurant), and four thrill rides:
* Big Shot at 1,081 ft is the highest thrill ride in the world.
* Insanity, opened in 2005, at 900 ft is the second highest thrill ride in the world; it dangles riders over the edge of the tower and then spins in a circular pattern at approximately forty miles per hour
* SkyJump Las Vegas, a controlled descent, Bungee jumping-like ride that will allow riders to plummet 855 ft attached to a high speed, descent wire. SkyJump opened on April 20, 2010.
* X-Scream at 866 ft is the third highest thrill ride in the world
The 80,000-square-foot casino includes approximately 50 table games, 1,500 slot and video poker machines, a poker room, and a race and sports book. Located in downtown Las Vegas, The Statosphere gives you a great view of the city, and there’s no other view like it anywhere.
