The Stratosphere is the tallest freestanding observation tower in the United States, but taking in the view isn't the only thing you can do at this height. The thrill rides at the top give daredevils the chance to be dangled off the side of the building or shot skyward. If those rides are too sedate, you can literally jump off the building at the Sky Jump, one of the world's highest freefalls where the controlled descent will take you over 800 feet down in a hurry. The Stratosphere offers four rides: the Big Shot (perhaps the most popular), Insanity, X-Scream, and the Sky Jump. The view from here is incredible, whether you're enjoying it from the observation deck or as you're contemplating just how sturdy the equipment is. You'll also find bars on levels 107 and 108, as well as the Top of the World restaurant on the 106th.
- Best Attractions & Activities: "If you'd like to eat at the revolving Top of the World restaurant on the Stratosphere's 106th floor, be sure to make reservations and plan for an upscale meal. The restaurant serves lunch and dinner."
- Recommended as Best Attractions & Activities Because: The Stratosphere offers not only stunning panoramic views from its observation deck, but also daring thrill rides.
