Did you know that the “Sky-Jump” from the Stratosphere Tower Las Vegas is the highest jump in North America?
Study are touting the benefits of jumping. So if falling down from the height of 1,149 ft (350.2 m) looks attractive to your senses, don’t delay! it’s just for fun :)
It’s a steep descent however, and you will come down at a speed of about 40 miles per hour!
*From the Stratosphere Hotel website I learned that the jump “holds a Guinness World Record as the highest commercial decelerator descent facility!“
You can jump anytime you want: in the daytime, at sunset or at night time – it’s all there for you :)
BTW: their operating hours are:
10am-1am | Sunday-Thursday
10am-2am | Friday-Saturday
From the photos you can see that it is pretty secure though. Just look at all the ropes this jumper has on him!
However, as secure as it is, there are still some restrictions: You have to be 14 years or older proven by a Valid photo ID. Also, “All jumpers between 14-17 years old MUST be accompanied by a parent or legal guardian who MUST sign an authorization waiver.” To me it makes sense ;)
Well, heights and lofty things are not my favorite, so I cannot tell how it feels to jump from the “Top of the world”. What I can tell is that it was fun to watch and photograph this popular activity from the ground. Sometimes a little change in perspective is fun. I like that especially when I have the choice, ha, ha :)
BTW: if you are like me and prefer to look at the photos instead of jumping, click on my images. They are available as art prints. Well, you can use them as souvenirs as well :)
