Thrill Rides Las Vegas

If you're looking for a thrill other than placing that next big bet, head to any of Vegas' exhilarating rides. The most famous are those at the Stratosphere: Big Shot, which shoots you straight up 329 metres above the Strip; X-Scream, a giant see-saw that propels you over the edge of the building, 264 metres above the ground; and Insanity, a massive arm that extends you over the edge of the tower and spins you. Meanwhile, New York New York has a jaw-dropping roller coaster that propels you 62 metres in the air before dropping you down 44 metres at 67 mph, then whips around in a 180-degree turn. Plus, the Adventuredome at Circus Circus is an indoor theme park with 25 rides to choose from; from the thrilling to those for children. Las Vegas truly is one big playground.
