Las Vegas Stratosphere Area

Visiting or staying at the Stratosphere means being quite far away from the liveliest part of the Las Vegas Strip. But this doesn’t mean that there’s nothing to do and do around this resort! Here’s a few ideas of things you could do in Stratosphere area, meaning the north end of the Strip.

But first, let us tell you a little bit more about the Stratosphere itself, as this resort is boasting many spectacular attractions you shouldn’t miss out on when in Vegas. For example, get a great view of the city from above by climbing the 1149-foot (350 meter) tall observation tower to visit its deck. Don’t worry, there’s an elevator! Or maybe you’re looking for something even more exciting, that will give you a good adrenaline rush? Then you could try out one of the four Stratosphere thrill rides: the SkyJump, Big Shot, Insanity or X-Scream – all living up to their names!

If you’re planning to visit many attractions in town, including the observation deck, then we advise you to purchase the Las Vegas Power Pass in advance – it will gain you free entry to the tower and to many other great activities, tours and attractions in Vegas. Especially when traveling with kids, this pass could save you lots of money and time and really enhance your vacation. Take into account though that the thrill rides are not included in the pass.

About 0.9 miles (less than 1.5 km) away, you will find the fabulous Circus Circus – a family resort, very popular with kids. If you’re planning on walking there on a hot day, make sure to bring some sunscreen and a bottle of water with you. It’s worth the walk though, because there’s plenty to see and do at the Circus Circus resort. There’s all kinds of games to explore in the large Midway Arcade Hall and you can even witness a world class circus act here for free!
