1) I would totally do it if I could get on without any annoying screaming girls. 2) The video would have been better if it were edited to look like someone had fallen out.

I actually work at the startosphere. The rides looks pretty lame, but when you only have a bar across your lap and a small platform under your feet it is a little thrilling (there are no shoulder straps or seat belts!). Not to mention the ride does hold you out at a 45 degree angle. The Big shot is probably the one that`s the most worth it, it shoots you up to about 1130 ft and then lets you free fall back down. And x-scream is only worth it if you sit up front. Anywhere else and the seats in front of you obscure your view. Most of the people who go up the tower these days are drunken college kids though, so the screaming in your ear is innevitable. =(

I`ve been there. It was fun, it was more amusing than intense but it was great nonetheless. There are two other rides there, one that shoots you up and another one that brings you over the edge.

Uh, TheHydra, (how ironic, reminded me of the rollercoaster Hydra), it isn`t "a pointless excuse to pull money out of people who are stupid enough to want to be scared?" I love roller coasters. Just because you can`t go on one without feeling bad doesn`t mean others don`t enjoy it. Roller coasters are awesome in my opinion because you know you are perfectly safe, yet you get the adrenaline rush anyway. Not to mention the cool views you get of the surroundings upside-down and from a hundred feet. The G`s feel pretty cool too.

By your logic, scary movies and video games are also only for stupid people because you pay to be scared. Give me a break.

Anyway, for the video the roller coaster looks sort of boring. Just going around in a circle isn`t fun, even if it is 900 feet in the air. Plus it probably is WAY overpriced.

It`s not that bad. I`ve been on it plenty of times. There was this one time tho when it first opened that the ride just stopped and the few people that were riding the ride were stuck in the open and out position.
It was all over the news here.
Other than that tho, its pretty neat.

The "thrill" of the coaster was the height of the ride more so then the track. When I was last at the Stratosphere they had this chair drop thing on an arm that held you over the edge. I did not see the "Insanity" or I would have went on it. Anyone know whats on top now?

It would be scarier if the rods/seats became horizontal over time.

Yes. That is my home town, Las Vegas. Yes it is the Stratosphere.

But it`s not AS scary as it looks. I will not go on it, because I`m afraid of heights, but the roller coaster only went about 30 MPH and was taken down January 1 2006.

"Insanity" is the ride here. A month after it opened a Woman and her sister got stuck on it, over the edge for 1 and a half hours. Automatic shut off kicked in for high wind.

@Bat: Yeah, it may look like it`s "just spinning a little" but it`s going faster than it looks and you`re staring 900 feet DOWN the whole time.

i thought it looked rubbish, i was expecting it to drop 900 feet like a free fall, which would have been scary and good but it just kind of span round a little bit like a fair ride, only suspended at 900 feet.

That`s on top of the Stratosphere hotel in Las Vegas.

They have a couple roller coasters up there too.

It`s almost 1,000 feet up in the air, or 304.8 meters, for all you other folks.

I`d do it. Looks very slow. I`d take off my glasses, then I wouldn`t be able to tell how high I was. And, of course, then I wouldn`t have the panic if they fell off.

I went on that back in March. I didn`t think I was afraid of heights until I rode that, and I was f**king terrified. And as people said before, it`s not as scary as X-Scream (where the only thing preventing you from plummeting are magnetic brakes), but it`s not as scary as Big Shot. I think it`s because the latter doesn`t dangle you off the edge.

I thought it`d be like one of those cheesy "brings you up high then drops down fast" rides. That thing had me scared just watching it. I am very afraid of heights, and if I was on that, I would be clinging to the seat for dear life with my eyes squinched shut.
