At 1,149 feet,
the Stratosphere Tower is the tallest freestanding observation tower in the
United States and the tallest building west of the Mississippi River.
From the observation decks, lounge, restaurant, meeting, banquet and private dining rooms, guests enjoy panoramic views of the Las Vegas Strip and the surrounding valley.
Visitors are whisked from ground level to the observation decks in less than 30 seconds in double decker elevators traveling at speeds of 1,800 feet per minute or three floors a second.
The tower is equipped with a special lighting system designed to provide a spectacular dancing light show nightly, which is visible throughout the Las Vegas Valley.
The Tower is open from 10 a.m. to 1 a.m. Sunday through Thursday and 10 a.m. to
2 a.m. Friday, Saturday and holidays.
Stratosphere Tower Thrill Rides
Thrill seekers can experience the ultimate in excitement
over 100 stories above the ground on Stratosphere's thrill rides: the Big
Shot, X Scream, and the High Roller roller coaster.
The High Roller roller coaster is the world's highest roller coaster. At 909 feet above the ground, it rockets around the tower pod on 840 feet of track. The High Roller makes three clockwise rotations banking sharply at 32-degree angles traveling approximately 32 miles per hour.
The Big Shot thrill ride catapults 16 riders from the 921-foot level up the Tower's mast to a height of 1,081 feet. Traveling at 45 miles per hour, riders experience 4G's as they reach the very top, and feel negative G's on the way down.
At 866 feet, X Scream is the world's third highest thrill ride. shaped like a giant teeter-totter, X Scream is an open vehicle that propels riders head-first 27 feet over the edge of the Stratosphere Tower at 30 miles per hour and then dangles them weightlessly above the Strip.
