Insanity Ride

The Insanity ride in Las Vegas is truly an insane experience as riders spin at 40 mph, hanging over the edge of the Stratosphere more than 900 feet above the Strip. As the ride is open seven days a week, guests can enjoy the thrills of the Vegas Insanity ride almost anytime during their vacation, and admission rates for this ride vary based on riders’ choice of packages. In addition to Insanity at the Stratosphere, visitors can enjoy a number of rides and entertainment at this lively hotel and casino. As it’s located on the Strip, taking advantage of the wealth of offered encounters at the Stratosphere is an essential and unforgettable part of experiencing the entire city.

While they’re strapped into a mechanical arm that extends over the edge of the observation deck of the Stratosphere, riders of Vegas Insanity will get breathtaking views of the city as they face straight down and start spinning faster until they reach the top speed of 40 mph, all the while suspended more than 900 feet in the air. The Insanity ride at the Stratosphere challenges patrons to keep their eyes open to fully experience the marvel of this ride, and to share the experience with friends and family after the ride is over.

Daily operating hours are from 10 am to 1 am on Sunday through Thursday, and from 10 am to 2 am on Friday, Saturday, and holidays, though this is subject to change with the onset of any inclement weather. There are multiple options for admission packages as well; to simply ride on Vegas Insanity, guests will pay the admission to the Stratosphere Tower plus the fee for the ride. To ride the Big Shot, X Scream, and the Insanity at the Stratosphere, the admission will go up. The highest initial price, but the best value, is usually the all-day ride passes, and if you’re in a hurry, you can even get “front-of-the-line” passes for an additional fee. Each package includes the tower admission, so no matter which rides you choose, you can enjoy the experience of being in the Stratosphere.

Aside from the Insanity ride in Las Vegas, other popular rides at the Stratosphere include the Big Shot and X Scream. Riders of the Big Shot will be literally shot 160 feet into the air and then fall back down again several times, all at the rate of about 45 mph and with great views over the Las Vegas Valley. Each shot takes place in a matter of seconds. X Scream is especially thrilling, as riders teeter over the edge of the observation deck of the Stratosphere, dangling weightlessly over the sparkle and glitter of Las Vegas.

Las Vegas offers a wealth of entertainment and excitement at every turn, from the spectacular fountains at Bellagio and the erupting volcano at the Mirage to the Sirens at Treasure Island and the compelling Fremont Experience. Insanity at the Stratosphere is just one of those thrilling experiences that offer lasting memories of some of the best views in the city as well as an exhilarating adventure. No matter the reason for your trip to Sin City, this is one of the most exciting things to do here.
