The Stratosphere Hotel & Casino opened in 1996 and features 2,444 spacious rooms including 220 luxurious suites. At 135 stories (1,149 feet), the Stratosphere Tower is the tallest free-standing observation tower in the United States and the tallest building west of the Mississippi. Visitors are whisked from ground level to the observation decks in less than 30 seconds in double decker elevators traveling at speeds of 1,800 feet per minute or three floors a second. Thrill seekers can enjoy excitement over 100 stories above the ground on the Big Shot thrill ride and the High Roller roller coaster.

World's Highest Thrill RidesThe High Roller roller coaster is the world's highest roller coaster. For those craving the ultimate rush, the Big Shot launches passengers 160 feet in the air in a mere 2.5 seconds to experience 4 G's of force, and then drops them back down to the launching pad at 0 G's. Observation DeckJeff looks a little concerned about those 4 G's...
