Thrilling Las Vegas Attractions: The Big Shot at Stratosphere
If you’re looking for a Las Vegas attraction that will take you on the ride of your life, head down the strip from your Las Vegas hotel and enter the Stratosphere Tower. The Big Shot is a ride to end all rides, with 16 rides catapulted 160 feet in the air, traveling at a speed of 45 miles per hour in the fastest view of Las Vegas you’ll ever get.
Don’t be tempted to reach for your camera though – no sooner have you arrived at the top, you’ll be dropped back down to Earth with 4Gs of force going up and negative Gs going down, all while your legs dangle freely in the desert air!
Hours of operation: Sunday – Thursday, 10 a.m. – 1 a.m. Fridays, Saturdays and holidays, 10 a.m. – 2 a.m.
Cost: $21.95 with included admission to Stratosphere Tower. Tickets to ride the Big Shot, Insanity and X Scream are $29.95. All-day ride passes are also available for $35.95 if you plan on trying the other scream-inducing attractions.
