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.

During our recent stay at The STRAT Hotel, we had the opportunity to experience their thrilling rides, including the observation deck on the 108th floor. We tried all of the rides, except for the virtual wired run down the building - they definitely get your heart racing! While I'm not sure if I could handle them again, it was a frighteningly fun experience. Overall, we had a great time during our stay at The STRAT.

What I Disliked

I have never experienced such thrilling and terrifying rides before in my life. The theme park is definitely worth the cost. We opted for the unlimited rides pass and started with the spinning ride, then the seesaw, and finally the slingshot. The seesaw ride was particularly amazing, providing a perfect mix of fear and adrenaline. I highly recommend trying to snag a front seat for this one. The views from up there are truly spectacular and add even more value to the admission price.

The thrill rides at The STRAT were a blast! They are a perfect activity for tourists looking for a one-of-a-kind experience in Las Vegas. The unique elevators, operated by a human, take you to various floors where you can snap amazing photos. Even if you're not interested in the rides, I highly recommend purchasing a ticket to go up the tower for the incredible views. It's definitely worth it!

The rides at The STRAT were a blast. They are a must-do for tourists looking for a one-of-a-kind experience in Las Vegas. The elevators, each operated by a human, take you to various floors where you can take amazing pictures. Even if you're not interested in the rides, just going up to the tower is worth it.

What I Disliked

As a roller coaster enthusiast and thrill rider, I have to say that The STRAT thrill rides left something to be desired. Insanity was not worth it unless you enjoy spinning rides, X-scream was only worth it if you’re on the outside or in the first row, and Big Shot, while the best of the three, felt like any other big drop ride at a major park just with the added bonus of being 1,000 feet in the air. The $30 for one ride may not be worth it for everyone. I opted for the unlimited pass and found myself riding Big Shot 10 times in a row, as it was the most thrilling option for me. Overall, it was a fun bucket list item to check off, but I didn't find the rides to be as exhilarating as I had hoped.
