Thrill Rides, Las Vegas
Ride the roller coaster at New York, New York.
It's a real screamer, inverted loop, plenty of g's speed, and a great backdrop to boot. Prophead gives it a thumbs up! -:)
The Stratosphere Tower. The Stratosphere and its landmark tower, which is the tallest free-standing observation tower in the western U.S., define the top of the Las Vegas Strip.
The Stratosphere features superior dining facilities, an innovative casino, the Tower Shops at tratosphere, 1,444 rooms and suites and the most breathtaking thrill rides anywhere. Guess where? Yes on the top of the tower of coures...
Try the big shot, on the top of the 320 meters tower. Thats the ultimate thrill for sure. The view was very nice, if you your eyes was open...
Go to the amazing Stratosphere.
Go up and have a ride in the Big shot. It will 'kick' you up 160 feet in just 2 seconds under a force of 4 G's. AHHHHH!!!YEAH!! You get a great view of the strip at the top if you now have the presence of mind to have a look. HAHA!!!!
One thing I didn't get to do, was to try the roller coaster on top of Las Vegas' tallest tower. It's true - there's one sitting on top of a tower. I can't remember the name of this particular tower, but there is only one structure resembling a tower in Las Vegas.
The view must be terrific from top of this tower. What is the name of it again?
The NASCAR Cafe has the SPEED,The Ride,the NASCAR Cafe's roller coaster reaches 70 mph and then it launches you backwards until you reach the beginning. Its a rush!
Where? Hotel New York!
A fantastic thrill ride where you can experience the force of negative "G's". (12,50 $)
No queues, no stress!
This is the coaster I was talking about. Its alot of fun just b/c of how high it is. Not very fast, but still pretty fun.
The picture shows the High Roller, going round the top of the tower.
See the tip Rollercoaster madness for all the information on the Stratosphere Casino Hotel and Tower.
The huge outdoor coaster wrapping in and out of the buildings of New York, is awsome! I am a roller coaster nut,and this ranks as a great coaster. Worth the money.
From the screams we heard coming from the coaster, it sounds like it's a lot of fun. It was fun to see the mini-scrapers from home, but without the hundreds of cabs it just wasn't realistic.
A roller coaster winds it way around the New Yorker Hotel. I think it is the highest roller coaster in the world.
Go for a ride on the top of the stratosphere...
To avoid, if you have vertigo...
Highest ride in the world
