In a matter of seconds, the Big Shot thrill ride catapults rider from the platform up to the Tower's mast at 1,081 ft and down again. Before you catch your breath, you'll be shot back up again at forces unmatched.

A giant teeter-totter sitting 866 ft above the ground, X-Scream will propel you headfirst, 27 ft over the edge of The STRAT. There, you will dangle weightlessly above the Las Vegas Strip before being pulled back and propelled over again for more.
