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.
Recognized as the Best Family Attraction by Best of Vegas in 2010, Sky Zone fuses fun and fitness into one atmospheric package for guests of all ages, sizes, and skill levels. Inside the facility's 3-D-walled playing fields, jumpers bound and ricochet across angled trampolines that transform traditional games such as dodge ball and long division into challenging new tests of aerial prowess. Additionally, SkyRobics fitness classes add a new dimension to exercise routines, and the Foam Zone lets guests cannonball into a plushy pit of foam boxes to experience what it would be like inside one of the moon's many FedEx locations.
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.
