 Review of Big Shot, The @ Stratosphere Hotel Casino, The

Tower rides like this are pretty basic. Youve got your lift n drop model, or your space shot model (launch up in a quick blast, then drop). Either one is a good adrenaline rush + kinda fun, but almost all such rides are identical. A difference of a few feet in height is negligible. Ive only been on 2 that managed some uniqueness. One was Tower of Terror, and Big Shot was the other. On the ground, Biggie would be your utterly average ride, but its dropped down on top of the tallest building in Las Vegas. At the top of the ride, youre WAY the heck up there, about 1,000 feet above the ground. Moreso than any other tower, this really gives the feel of being up there in the sky, cause there is nothing around you but empty air. And the view of the LV valley is spectacular, especially at night, when the whole place is like a crazy Xmas tree. Its pricey (everything in LV is), but not terribly so for this town, and the admission cost includes the observation deck. The Stratosphere is way up on the far north end of the strip, but worth stopping at, especially if youre en route to downtown.
