Thrill Rides in Las Vegas

2,492

Published on

Insanity the Ride, opened in 2005, at 900 feet (274 m) is the second highest thrill ride in the world, it dangles riders over the edge of the tower and then spins in a circular pattern at approximately forty miles per hour. Since its public opening, the ride has stopped twice with passengers onboard (upwards of an hour each time), due to high winds that trigger a "safety mechanism" which shuts down the machine immediately without bringing the passengers back to the loading dock.

  • I've done this one. It's awesome! (You have to leave your cell phone and keys in a locker).

    Everybody encourages you let go of the chair and put your hands over your head. It's scary but really really cool at the same time ... you feel like you're flying.

    Viva Las Vegas!
