By this point, your heart will be racing as the jump gets closer. Do you dare to look the 800-plus feet down to the Strip below? Once you're strapped in, get ready for the ultimate adrenaline rush as you leap into the air and descend up to 40 mph to the ground below. If you can keep your eyes open long enough, you will have amazing views of the Las Vegas Valley and Strip.

SkyJump StratosphereThe view is spectacular and the experience packs enough adrenaline to keep you up all night. You will definitely want to talk about this adventure when you return because this is one of those memories you will want to share with your friends.
