At 1,149 feet, Stratosphere Casino, Hotel & Tower is the tallest freestanding observation tower in the country. Its views of Sin City are unparalleled?360-degree vistas from indoor and outdoor observation decks?which explains why readers of the Las Vegas Review-Journal named it the Best Place to View the City in 2010?14. The thrill rides on the outdoor observation deck are some of the most extreme in the world. You can go bungee jumping, ride a tilt-a-whirl at speeds of up to 3 Gs, and plummet on a free fall ride, all at 1,081 feet above the ground. Afterward, grab a bite to eat at the Top of the World restaurant or a signature cocktail at the tallest bar in Las Vegas, preferably with the tallest man in Las Vegas, Tall Kyle.

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.

European Formula EK20 karts whiz by on Pole Position Raceway?s quarter-mile track, cruising at speeds of up to 45 miles per hour. Spectators crank their heads to keep up. There?s no wind to battle against, no sun blinding the drivers? eyes, and no birds rigging the race by dropping smoke bombs because all of Pole Position Raceway?s competitions happen inside. This is thanks to a fleet of electric-powered karts, which accelerate more quickly and hug curves more smoothly than gas-powered karts without dumping out clouds of exhaust. To sate speed cravings, drivers simply arrive and drive?show up and nab one of 13 spots in the next race. Then with a DOT-approved racing helmet, they push the pedal to the floor for roughly 10 minutes, drafting their opponents to fly past them near the finish line. At the end of each race, drivers receive a SpeedSheet that displays their race results, fastest lap time, and the likelihood of getting their own action-movie franchise. For those seeking to dive deep into the world of racing, Pole Position Raceway offers driving clinics and youth racing camps, where younger racers pilot EK10 karts that peak at 20 mph.

Shots ring out across the Wild Wild West paintball field as players belly-flop behind hay bales and crouch-walk through the saloon. On a second field, players storm a castle and sprint past water towers, racing to the center to capture the flag planted there. Those two battlegrounds at Las Vegas Premier Paintball are ripe with chances for team strategy, and a third, smaller field dotted with inflated obstacles creates a fast-paced game that requires you to be fleet-footed and quick on the draw. Five days a week, teams suited up with full facemasks engage each other in just such battle across the facility's outdoor fields. With the addition of overhead lights, the center now stays open later on Wednesday nights, allowing players to battle away from the sun?s heat. Paintballing groups of 10 or more can also reserve the field of their choice for birthdays, bachelor parties, or corporate team-building events.
