The Sky Jump at Stratosphere Las Vegas

Why would anyone want to leap off the top of a tower and head straight down to the Las Vegas Strip? Maybe the question I should be asking is why wouldn’t you? 829 feet of decelerated freefall and you are treated to an adrenaline rush that only Las Vegas can give you. This is not the same as hitting on 16 with your mortgage on the table or the exhilarating feeling you get after a long night at the Las Vegas nightclubs, this is pure adrenaline.

The jumper at Sky Jump Las Vegas is fitted with a Stratosphere jump suit and then harnessed to a high speed descender machine. The cables that are attached to your harness allow you to take a leap off the tower and rocket your way to the bottom as your speed is controlled so as to not ruin your vacation with a hard thump. You jump and then you float down like a flying squirrel and then friends buy you drinks for the remainder of the trip.

If you have reservations about Sky Jump Las Vegas spend a little time watching the way everyone involved is very safety conscious. Every piece of equipment gets checked multiple times and they talk you though every step of the process. Watch other jumpers and you'll get an idea of what you have decided to do. While it is not natural to leap off a tower high in the air above the Las Vegas strip it is safe.
