Located on the north end of the Las Vegas Strip, the 1,149 foot
Stratosphere is, by far, the most recognized landmark associated with the
city of Las Vegas. It is the tallest free-standing observation tower in
the country and is also the tallest building west of the Mississippi
At a cost of over half a billion dollars to create, the Stratosphere is one of the most popular attractions in Las Vegas. No other place in the city can compete with the type of views you'll get atop the Stratosphere.
The top of the Stratosphere houses a 12-story pod that contains meeting rooms, observation decks, and the revolving "Top of the World" restaurant that completes a 360 degree rotation every hour. Is it any coincidence that this restaurant also has a seating capacity of 360?
Also perched at the top of the Stratosphere are two incredible thrill rides. "The High Roller", which is the highest roller coaster on the planet, starts at a mere 909 feet above the desert earth, and "The Big Shot" propells vertically to the tip-top of the tower before surrendering to a controlled free fall back down to the top of the pod. If you're afraid of heights, you're going to love these rides. A visit to Las Vegas just isn't complete without experiencing at least on of them.
For the accommodations, The Stratosphere has over 2,400 guest rooms and suites, many of which offer breath taking views of the Las Vegas Strip and surrounding mountains.
You may also treat yourself to their new 67,000 square foot pool area, with access to private cabanas. You will find magnificent views here from the wonderfully landscaped pool deck, which also has access to a spa.
The casino offer over 100,000 square feet of gaming space, and possesses a World's Fair theme, which also carries over in the seven restaurants on property.
So if you like tall buildings, be sure to visit the Stratosphere in Las Vegas. If you're afraid of heights, we dare you to ride The High Roller with your eyes open. Only in Las Vegas.
