If jumping off the top of The Stratosphere Tower with their Skyjump feature is a little too, well, insane for you, then consider zipping down the Fremont Street Experience instead. Instead of starting from 100 stories up, you launch from a platform about 65 feet above the street and then ride the zip line down to a second platform near Binion's at speeds approaching 35 miles per hour. Thrill junkies may scoff, but this is still a heart-pounding ride that even the most height-phobic seem to have an easier time of handling. The staff is very friendly and extremely patient, even with big chickens like us. Pay the extra $5 to ride it at night so you can cruise under the Viva Vision canopy while it is all lit up. That's a Vegas experience you will not forget anytime soon.
