Full description
Discover the adrenaline rush of a lifetime, 800 to 1,000 feet above the Las Vegas Strip. Voted the Best Amusement Ride year after year. Shoot straight up 160 feet in the air at 45 mph on Big Shot, spin at 3 Gs while dangling from the SkyPod on Insanity, and take a roller coaster ride like no other that teeter-totters you over the edge of the SkyPod from 866 feet high on X-Scream. BIG SHOT Strap into the Big Shot, where you’ll be shot 160 feet in the air at 45 miles per hour in a matter of seconds – all while overlooking the majestic Las Vegas Valley. Be catapulted from the 921-foot-high platform up the tower’s mast to a height of 1,081 feet, and then down again. INSANITY You’d have to be insane to want to dangle from the side of a building at more than 900 feet high. Sit in a massive mechanical arm that extends 64 feet over the edge of the SkyPod, spinning you in the open air at speeds of up to three Gs while being propelled up to an angle of 70 degrees. X-SCREAM A roller coaster ride like no other, X-Scream teeter-totters you over the edge of the SkyPod from 866 feet high, propelling you headfirst 27 feet over the edge of the tower. After being shot over the edge, dangle weightlessly above the Las Vegas Strip before being pulled back and propelled again.

The view from up there was so beautiful- getting to see a different side of Las Vegas than I ever experienced before. The rides were such a thrill especially the Insanity ride . I wanted to to try big shot but it was a little later at night and the attendant wasn’t there so they wouldn’t allow me to go to the top which wasn’t ideal but overall I recommend.

Thrill rides are always fun, but thrill rides a thousand feet above the ground are on a whole other level, literally! The Big Shot was our favorite, and because there were no lines on the day we went, we rode it over a dozen times in about an hour. It never got any less exciting, or scary. Definitely get the unlimited pass!

For you adrenaline junkies, this is a MUST!!!! Don't even think about it... JUST GO! If you're hesitant, but are planning on going to go up there and do one of them, just go for the whole thing and do ALL THREE rides!!! Do them in this order: Big Shot!, X-Scream and then Insanity. I had never been that scared in my life, not even skydiving. The adrenaline lasted me for hours. The crowds were very light so we didn't need to stand in line, but staffing was also "light" so it was a tiny bit confusing to know where to go once we were at the 108th floor!!! Build time to spend it at the observation decks, both inside and out. If you can, go at sunset. Wonderful experience! I will spend more time up there next time!
