Vegas Indoor Skydiving was one of America’s first indoor skydiving facilities, built in 1982 right in the heart of the Strip. The wind tunnel, which blows air up to 120 miles per hour, has a mesh trampoline bottom and padded sides, creating a safe environment for novices and experienced fliers to simulate skydiving without an airplane or parachute. Like celebrities such as Leonardo DiCaprio, Tom Hanks, and Ozzy Osbourne, three past fliers, you’ll start your session with a short safety tutorial. Then you’ll be outfitted with a flight suit, goggles, and helmet and hit the wind tunnel for a 3-minute controlled flight—which is 5–6 times longer than the average duration of an outdoor skydive.

Battlefield Vegas is as much a living history museum as it is an interactive shooting range and training complex. At a 5-acre military-style compound just off the strip and at a more than 200-acre offsite desert training facility, instructors guide guests in operating handguns, rifles and shotguns, and automatic weapons that range from Prohibition-era weapons to current arms carried by NATO forces. Alongside this impressive weapon collection lies a fleet of vehicles that contains specimens such as Willys MB Jeeps driven in World War II and a UH-1C "Huey" helicopter flown in Vietnam. In addition to managing the collection, Battlefield's staff also lets guests feel what it's like to handle the weaponry through 15 scenario experiences. In these supervised programs, instructors supply era-appropriate arms and guide guests through scenarios that re-create historic battles and common military campaigns. In Defending Stalingrad, for example, role-playing soldiers take aim with Tokarev pistols, Mosin Nagant M91/30 rifles, and PPsh-41 submachine guns. Beyond overseeing these scenario experiences and the training facilities, Battlefield's leadership plans to build a 32,000-square-foot outdoor airsoft field, as well as a military museum.
