We had planned to visit the rides here but after taking a bus downtown and experiencing Freemont Experience we realised how far out it was. The area didn't look the best so we didn't bother.

We got a really good deal at Stratosphere, so we stayed there for 5 days. The staff was very friendly, and our room was very nice too with stripview and a view at the pool. The bad thing was the noise, especcialy at night. The walls are thin and you could here your neighbours very well. If you are in... More

a great tourist attraction, good view of the strip. 3 thrill seeking rides and a leap of faith jump off the side of the tower.

The view was great, but with only barbed wire, I felt very unsafe at the top. I'm not a thrill seeker, however my husband and teenagers are. My son did 1 of the rides and my daughter didn't do any. They just weren't appealing and felt scary even to teens. My husband did all 3 rides and thought they were... More

The Stratosphere was one of the "must do's" when we planned Vegas. Just a short walk from the main strip, and it does lack the spit'n polish of the main casinos. Staff involved with the tower rides were all excellent, from the ticket clerk to the ride operators and especially to all the lift staff. Once up the tower, again... More

The lobby is a little dingy and old fashioned, the smell is of old smokey air. But once you make your way to the tower, it becomes well lit and pleasant. You have to go through security to go up to the tower, and there are photographers that push pictures hard on folks, but that is easy enough to deflect... More

We paid for unlimited although we only rode one ride twice, was still worth the money. We had a great time. The rides provided a great view of the city as well as a bit of a thrill to be on them. The atmosphere was great with friendly staff, music and lights (like everything in Vegas). I enjoyed the one... More

We went up night and went to the Level 107 which has amazing views. The entry to the bar is free but you have to purchase a drink .... We had a delicious glass of Napa Valley red with some appetisers and just sat back and admired the views :-)

We have been up here a few times,..first time with the kids. It may still be a money-grabber,..but, can't beat the view. In recommendation , you may want to get there early in the day, to avoid line-ups. You do get stamped upon entry which allows you to return later in the day,...perhaps around dusk,...as Vegas lights up....but, everyone else... More
