As if the prospect of dangling and spinning high atop the Stratosphere wasn’t scary enough, you can now jump to your racing heart’s content thanks to the addition of SkyJump Las Vegas.
The “controlled freefall,” opening April 20, allows daredevils to safely (or relatively safely) jump from the top of the skyscraper and plummet 855 feet at speeds of up to 40 mph.
The price of tempting fate: $100 per jump.
This is the latest thrill-filled screamer at the Strat, joining X-Scream, Insanity and Big Shot.
SkyJumpers receive a short safety lesson before suiting up in safety harnesses and getting strapped into a high-speed “descender” machine. The adventure begins as they near the edge and prepare to take the big step. From there, they plunge 108 stories from the top of the tallest building west of the Mississippi River. Those who manage to keep their eyes open get an astonishing view of the Strip.
