Stratosphere jump opens to daredevils in Vegas
By OSKAR GARCIA
LAS VEGAS — Visitors to the Stratosphere tower in Las Vegas no longer need an elevator to get down from Sin City's highest building.
A new ride is giving daredevils a cable, a platform and a chance to jump to a blue and black target 829 feet below.
SkyJump Las Vegas has opened as the world's highest commercial decelerator descent.
A cable line guides jumpers down from a metal platform, with views of the Las Vegas Strip along the way.
The ride was certified by Guinness World Records as the highest of its kind.
