Stratosphere Inside Info, Discounts, and FAQ
Way North Strip
The Stratosphere is a very nice Vegas property with a downside. It’s rather isolated, located between the Strip and downtown, making it almost essential to get a rental car lest you pay a lot more in taxi fares. Higher floors that are south facing offer the best views, and the Oasis Suite is an extra special treat.
Many people head to the C Bar in the Strat just for the great drink special: for $19.99 it’s all you can drink from 5 p.m. to 9 p.m. every night. It’s also less pretentious than some of the other properties along the Strip.
Top of the World
If you’re an adrenaline junkie, the Stratosphere Tower is a must. At over 100 stories high, this is the tallest observation tower in the nation. The restaurant atop the Stratosphere, is “The Top of the World,” rotating slowly around the top providing breathtaking views of the entire city.
If you dare, take a ride on the X-Scream, Insanity or the Big Shot, which is sure to provide one of the most memorable moments of any Vegas vacation. If you don’t want to try it yourself, watching others take a terrifying ride is also quite entertaining.
