Best Thrill Rides In Las Vegas

Thrill seekers coming to Las Vegas will be happy to know there are tons of activities, rides, and roller coasters to get your heart pumping and possibly have you screaming at the top of your lungs. We’ve hand picked some of our favorites ones both on and off The Strip.

Skyjump

Where else can you jump off the 108th story of a hotel? At the Strat in Las Vegas of course. This heart pounding, lung screaming experience holds the Guinness World Record as the highest commercial decelerator descent facility. Which means you’ll reach speeds up to 40 mph during this thrill of a lifetime.

Exotics Racing

Make your car enthusiast dreams come true by taking a Ferrari, Lamborghini, Porsche, Aston Martin, and other supercar exotics on the racecourse. You’ll be teamed up with a professional instructor and hitting the track and setting lap records in no time. Trust us, you’ll be begging for more laps.

New York-New York Roller Coaster

The Big Apple Coaster literally takes fun to a whole new level, and it includes a 203 foot drop. Find pure excitement at the New York-New York Hotel’s coaster that speeds of up to 67 mph and both full 360 degree loops and twists. A surprisingly serious roller coaster and ride favorite of The Strip.

The Strat Thrill Rides

You may have been on thrill rides before, but not 3 located on the top of the Strat Hotel. Strap into the Big Shot where you’ll be catapulted straight up into the air thei with a group of 16 fellow riders. Dangle over the side of the hotel with a massive arm that spins those who dare on the ride known as the Insanity. The X-Scream is a daring coaster ride like no other as you are shot over the edge and dangled weightlessly above Las Vegas before being pulled back just to do it again.

Canyon Blaster Roller Coaster

Located inside the Adventuredome at the Circus Circus Hotel lives the Canyon Blaster. Here you’re invited to take on the world’s only indoor double loop, double corkscrew roller coaster, and we highly encourage you to take the invitation.

Sky Combat Ace

You’ll find one of the most adrenaline pumping experiences in Las Vegas is actually not on The Strip, but in the skies above it. You’ll be paired up with trained pilots and taught how to performs stunts, spins, drops, and even simulated combat campaigns and aerial dogfights.
