World Thrill to Stratosphere

World tour guides to Stratosphere Las Vegas. It is one of the places that all fun and entertainment and thrilling Rollar coasters. This is also 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. It is owned by Whitehall Street Real Estate Funds, an affiliate of Goldman, Sachs & Co who purchased American Casino & Entertainment Properties which includes the Stratosphere along with three other properties. The property's signature attraction is the 1,149 ft (350.2 m) Stratosphere Tower, the tallest freestanding observation tower in the United States, and the Second Tallest in the Western Hemisphere, surpassed only by the CN Tower in Toronto, Ontario. The hotel is a separate building with 24 stories, 2,427 rooms and an 80,000 sq ft (7,400 m2) casino.

The Stratosphere Tower is the northernmost of the major Strip casinos and the only one actually in the City of Las Vegas, as the rest of the Strip south of Sahara Avenue is in the unincorporated townships of Paradise and Winchester. In January 2010, American Casino & Entertainment Properties announced a new Thrill Ride for the top of the tower: Sky Jump, a controlled descent, Bungee jumping-like ride that will allow riders to plummet 855 feet (261 m) attached to a high speed, descent wire. It opened on April 20; 2010. Radio stations KOAS 105.7 (FM) and KVGS 107.9 (FM) have on-channel FM boosters broadcasting from an antenna at the top of the tower's structure. However, the signals being transmitted from this structure are relatively low-power and only cover the immediate Las Vegas area on a fill in or booster basis. Both of these stations have their main transmitter sites located elsewhere, and those transmitter sites are what give these stations more wide spread, regional coverage.

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 (329 m) is the highest thrill ride in the world.
  • Insanity, opened in 2005, at 900 ft (270 m) 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 (261 m) attached to a high speed, descent wire. SkyJump opened on April 20, 2010.Link
  • X-Scream at 866 ft (264 m) is the third highest thrill ride in the world.

Some of the casino games include slot machines, video poker and European roulette. The Stratosphere has inherited some unusual variations on casino games from its Vegas World predecessor, such as crapless craps. The 80,000-square-foot (7,400 m2) casino includes approximately 50 table games, 1,500 slot and video poker machines, a poker room, and a race and sports book.
