It’s the only SkyJump in North America and the highest in the world. SkyJump is a controlled free fall, similar to a vertical zip line. The launching pad is located on the 108th floor of Stratosphere Casino, Hotel & Tower in Las Vegas, 855 feet above the Las Vegas Strip. Jumpers are harnessed in and attached to a cable that is connected to a descender machine. Guide wires keep the skyjumper on course and on target. I take the leap!
