SkyJump Las Vegas

SkyJump Las Vegas is an 855 foot jump off the Stratosphere Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas. SkyJump Las Vegas is the highest jump in North America and is a ton of fun. It gives you a great view of the Vegas Strip and the whole city and desert in general. In my case, I did it the morning after the Superbowl; which was probably a bad idea but it really did help with my Superbowl hangover! It is up there in terms of thrills!

It is really safe and they have a 100% safety record. Trust me, it is still a thrill, just like a bungy jump. 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. Just before reaching the rapidly approaching ground, the skyjumper is slowed down for a controlled and safe landing.

You feel safe the whole time but it is still a rush. I did the one in Auckland, New Zealand in 2003 and it was incredible as well. But there’s just something about Vegas! It’s $109 really well spent (locals get a discount to $89). The video says it all!

    I jumped for my birthday , Oct. 2013….YOU ONLY LlVE ONCE..!! I needed a change in my life..I DID IT..!! YEAH !!

  13. Going to Vegas on Thanksgiving. Hope I have balls to do that. I’m staying at Stratosphere.

  14. I will be in Vegas soon and I will be jumping 🙂

  15. How can anyone go to Vegas and NOT do it?!!! The Big Shot ride on the top of the Stratosphere used to be the greatest ride in Vegas, but this tops that hands-down. It’s only 4 hours away, so soon I will make that drive and take that dive.

  16. The staff is awesome & make you feel as comfortable as possible. I’ve jumped once at night & once during the day. It gets more fun every time. I’ll jump on every visit to Vegas. Once is never enough! ?
    Do it!!!! Life is too short not to. It was the most incredible experience! Once I stopped screaming. ?
