Heart Stopping Attractions Light Up Las Vegas

Thrill-seekers looking for a new experience may be able to find it in the desert. The SkyJump, in Las Vegas, recently entered the Guinness World Record book for the highest controlled free fall ride in the world; dropping passengers more than 800 feet from the top of the Stratosphere hotel at 40 mph. In fact, Vegas is home to several extreme attractions, like the indoor skydiving facility at “Vegas Indoor Skydiving”. Built in the heart of the city, it simulates the freefall aspect of skydiving minus the airplane and parachute. Another option for adrenaline junkies is the many roller coasters found along the strip. The Roller Coaster at New York, New York reaches speeds up to 67 mph and thrills over 1 million visitors a year. Faster still, Speed The Ride whips through the Sahara hotel at speeds of up to 70 miles per hour. And for those who’d rather not stay grounded, they can literally “fly” above the desert with help of Bootleg Canyon Flightline
