Thrill-Seeking in Las Vegas: What To Do, Where To Go
September 01, 2015 •
Things To Do In Las Vegas
Those that are looking for a high-intensity and wild experience need to search no further than Las Vegas. While many may come to Vegas for the shows or the lights, the truth is that there are few better places in the world that are better for thrill-seekers.
What is it that thrill-seekers come to Vegas for? Well, here is an inside look into thrill seeking in Las Vegas, including what to do and where to go.
Take A Wild Ride
There are a ton of different roller coasters in Vegas, but of course Sin City puts a spin on things that you’ve likely never experience before. The highlight of it all is the X-Scream, which is atop the Stratosphere Hotel. Some people have a hard enough time in the glass-enclosed room that sits on the top floor of the Stratosphere. But if you are a true seeker of wild rides, then you can’t complete your bucket list until you hit the X-Ride.
Maybe the enclosed area of a roller coaster is even a bit too constraining for you. If that’s the case, or if you just consider yourself a true nut for adventure, then you can Sky Jump from the Stratosphere as well. The tallest building in Vegas, this 108 story drop is 855 feet. You’ll be wearing nothing more than a bungee and a wristcam that records the entire adventure, so you can take it home and show everyone what a boss you are for taking the adventure on head first.
Hit The Tracks
Events like the Daytona 500 and the Indy 500 bring in millions of dollars to Vegas thanks to betting and gambling odds. But for those that want to get behind the wheel of a race car themselves, Vegas is the perfect place to do it. At the Las Vegas Motor Speedway, people can test a variety of cars including Ashton Martin, Mercedes and Audi. Whether you dream of being the next James Bond or the next Jeff Gordon, the thrill-seeker in you will enjoy flying around LVMS at speeds you’ve never hit before (legally, at least).
Bet It All
Maybe for you, the thrill doesn’t come from any sort of fast ride or death-defying drop. Instead, maybe it comes from throwing down $10K on a single roll of black at the roulette table. Some people would call this foolish. But the true thrill seeker knows that getting your heart beating and sweat pouring is no different when waiting for the ball to drop on the roulette table, as it is racing around a track in excess of 100 miles per hour.
If you’re looking for a thrill, you’ve come to the right place. Vegas offers countless options for the thrill seeker in you. Whether it’s conquering a fear of heights, checking off another roller coaster on your bucket list, or betting it all on black, come to Vegas and see just how far you can take your thrill-seeking experiences.
