    Love the pics Mr O. Can't mind the name of that contraption that tips you over the edge but it's scary as hell. I can feel my stomach muscles all tightening at the thought again of plummetting to the ground strapped in that stupid car.

    Is it called Fear Fall ? Must have been drunk to get onto it. I kept wondering about the stop at the end and if the welds would hold with those cars crashing to a halt. Good view from inside. You can see the peoples faces as they get to the end of the track.

    Its not fear fall

    they have the high roller coaster, the big shot and the thing that sends you out over the side is called X Scream


    There is a new ride there called insanty




    Big Shot

    The Big Shot thrill ride catapults 16 riders from the 921-foot high platform up the Tower's mast to a height of 1,081 feet. Traveling at 45 miles per hour, riders experience 4G's as they reach the very top, and feel negative G's on the way down.



    X-Scream

    At 866 feet, X Scream is the world's third highest thrill ride. Shaped like a giant teeter-totter, X Scream is an open vehicle that propels riders head-first, 27 feet over the edge of the Stratosphere Tower and dangles them weightlessly above the Strip before pulling it's riders back and over again for more!


    Insanity

    Insanity-The Ride consists of an arm that extends out 64 feet over the edge of the Tower and will spin passengers at up to three 'G's.' As the ride spins faster and faster, the riders are propelled up to an angle of 70 degrees. Riders will experience the thrill of being flung over the edge of the Tower and literally facing downward at the City of Las Vegas below. The ride is programmable with various ride options. An unobstructed view of historic downtown Las Vegas rewards those riders brave enough to experience three 'G's' at a height of more than 900 feet.

    Mr O, that new ride Insanity is well named. Anything with computers will go wrong at some time. Hate to think what it would be like stuck out on that contraption for an hour or two while some engineer works on it. Great photos as usual.
