Stupid, Crazy, Risky, Things Not To Do In Vegas

There are several  really stupid things not to do, in Las Vegas we will highlight today. In fact, there are probably dozens of stupid, crazy, and risky,  things to avoid in Las Vegas, but we will only talk about some of them. You may have your own list of stupid things to do or you may think the ones we mention are not stupid, but rather fun.

The first on our list of things not to do is jumping out of a window on top of the Stratosphere Tower. This would be a 100 stories fall to the ground. No, this is not a planned suicide, but rather a way to feel the thrill of jumping out of a building on a wire that will allow you to land without dying, at least so far.

Now this next activity is sort of new and could really be terrifying to some people, especially if they have some claustrophobic tendencies. There are what are called Vegas “Escape Rooms.” These experiences are where a group of folks are locked in a room and they have to find their way out. It can be a disorientating experience too. These escape rooms are now popping up around Las Vegas. One such place is called “Lock Down.” Check them out here.

A really dumb and stupid thing to do is to try and cheat one of the casinos. They will catch you and you will end up in jail. The good news is that in today’s world, you won’t have your fingers broken or your legs crippled as they could have been back in the day. Some folks back in the old days ended up dead in a trash can or buried in the desert. We wrote an article about this topic earlier. Check it out here.

If you meet someone at a bar and they offer to buy you a drink go with them to get the drink. Otherwise, you may be slipped a date rape drug or mickey. You could wake up somewhere raped or robbed or both. It’s Vegas!

Drinking while gambling. Why do you think that casinos give you free drinks while gambling? It’s because they know that you will take more chances while tipsy. This cost you money, maybe a lot of money if you are not disciplined. If you are a serious gambler, then don’t drink until after your victory. Then you have something to celebrate and you can afford that drink.

These are just some of the stupid things to avoid, but as we said earlier there are many. To read a lot more of the dumb and stupid things not to do in Vegas check here and here.
