The STRAT Thrill Rides |Las Vegas Attractions

No Las Vegas experience can compete with the adrenaline rush found atop the 1,149-foot tower of Stratosphere. These thrill rides will test your guts, bravery, and even your sanity. The rides, including X-Scream, Insanity, and Big Shot, all offer an unparalleled sensation found nowhere else in the world. Because affordable pricing is offered for each ride, the only thing stopping you from this experience is yourself.

Tame is not a word you will use to describe any of these rides, but compared to the others, Big Shot is the tamest. Big Shot shoots passengers straight up the tower’s mast at a speed of 45 mph and a force of four G’s. After the ascent, Big Shot forces you back to Earth as a weightless sensation takes over your body. At a height of 1,081 feet above the Las Vegas strip, Big Shot gives riders a perspective of Las Vegas few have ever witnessed.

If you think Big Shot sounds intimidating, wait ‘til you see X-Scream. Strap into this ride and be prepared to hang 27 feet over the ledge of the famed Stratosphere tower. After accelerating to the end of the track, X-Scream gets your heart pumping even faster by quickly dropping its riders as if the track has broken. This is not for the faint of heart.

You may be asking how it can possibly get any worse. Let us enlighten you. Insanity straps riders in for what could be the most exhilarating thrill ride in the world. Riders of Insanity are extended 64 feet over the edge by a large mechanical arm and offered a short lived moment of peace before Insanity gets insane. Insanity spins riders at a force of over 3 G’s, forcing passengers to an angle of 70 degrees. Open your eyes and you are looking directly at the ground located more than 900 feet below you. This is one Las Vegas attraction that must be experienced to truly be appreciated.

Experience unlimited rides (excluding SkyJump) and observation deck entry for only $50. Tickets can be purchased on-site or online.

What I Liked Most

What I Disliked

We decided to do two of the three rides as the green ride was closed due to the unseasonably high winds. Nevertheless, the Big Shot and Xscream rides were exhilarating. We got to enjoy both the interior and exterior observation decks, and even had the option of bungee jumping off the side of the building which is secured with a rope and a contraption that slows you down as you approach the ground. And, of course, you can always gather some liquid courage by visiting the bar afterwards.

It's a little pricey for three rides, but it's an experience you won't forget. Awesome time and worth every penny.

What I Disliked

I've only done the little roller coaster that looks like it's falling over the edge, but on my next trip, I plan on trying all 3. The one I did was well worth the price of admission, so I have to believe the other two will not let me down.
