Test Your Inner Dare Devil!

shutterstock_379703758Are you a thrill seeker? Do you feel the need to challenge the little dare devil inside you? Well, there are many ways to test your limits during your next Las Vegas trip.

There are some true thrilling, adrenaline pumping, activities in the area. You can go to the Stratosphere and try the Skyjump. The Skyjump is just a quick free fall of 829 feet from the observation tower of the Stratosphere. No big deal, right?

And, by the way, this jump experience holds the Guinness World Record for the highest commercial decelerator descent. Gather up your nerve, $120, and jump. If you do this, your friends will have a hard timing topping your story. Then, you have some real bragging rights. You might want to film your jump though just to convince some of your doubting Thomas friends. They will believe.

There is one other thrill that might appeal to those who would really love to skydive, but just don’t have the nerve. On the Las Vegas Strip you can skydive indoors. Once you try this, you may just decide that doing the real thing would not be that bad.

On a personal note, I am afraid of heights, however I did skydive and had no fear. For some reason it isn’t the same thing as hanging in a tree or looking over the side of a tall building. In fact, once you leave the aircraft, you have no sense of falling, at least until you get down when it is time to pull the rip cord.

Then, there are the many roller coasters and other thrill rides up and down the strip. There is something for all ages and courage levels. If the previously mentioned activities don’t interest you, but you still want to be a little dare devilish then try some of the other rides on top of the Stratosphere.
