Take The Plunge - SkyJump Las Vegas

Adrenaline junkies and extreme thrill seekers have a new reason to visit Sin City - the Stratosphere Hotel & Casino has opened America's first SkyJump attraction. And it's a doozy.

And it's core SkyJump is a controlled freefall experience. Not that that makes it any less terrifying, you're still falling 855 ft. toward the ground from the tower's 108th floor. Upon the official opening, the Stratosphere SkyJump was officially named the "highest commercial decelerator descent" in the world by Guinness World Records. (the previous record was 764 ft. at the Macau Tower in China)

The experience costs $99.99 per person and guests must be 14 years of age to participate. More information is available on SkyJump Las Vegas' website.
