What are the weight requirements?
Jumper must weigh under 265 pounds to incorporate the 10lb. harness weight.
Can I bring my own recording devices?
No personal recording devices are allowed – only company approved recording devices will be permitted.
What weather conditions will shut down the ride?
Ride will close due to inclement weather. SkyJump cannot operate during winds over 44 miles per hour, or other extreme conditions like heavy rain and lightning. Fortunately, this is Las Vegas & it's usually hot and sunny.
Where's the best place for my friends/family to watch me from?
That entirely depends whether your friends prefer the bottom or the top. There is a more-than-adequate viewing area in the SkyJump landing area, located off the SkyJump store. Viewers will watch SkyJumpers from below in the open air as they tumble towards the earth. There is also a big screen television located in the SkyJump store, broadcasting the big jump live. Those who prefer to get a bird's eye view and aren't afraid of heights may enjoy watching the jump from the 108th floor, inside the Tower glass.
Is there a secure place to put my personal items while I jump?
Yes, SkyJumpers will have access to their own personal locker, with a key.
Is there a bar nearby?
Of course. We wouldn't expect you to contemplate a 108-story jump without the aid of some liquid courage. AirBar on Level 108 is the highest bar in Las Vegas, and the perfect spot to enjoy a cocktail or beer while you check out spectacular views of Sin City day or night.
Do you have a special "locals" price?
Yes, locals can jump for $99.99. There is also a "locals" price for Tower Admission.
What exactly is SkyJump?
It's the only sky jump in North America and the highest in the world. SkyJump is a controlled descent, similar to a vertical zip line. The launching pad is located on the 108th floor of Stratosphere Casino, Hotel & Tower in Las Vegas, 855 feet above the Las Vegas Strip. Jumpers are harnessed in and attached to a cable that is connected to a descender machine. Guide wires keep the Skyjumper on course and on target. Just before reaching the rapidly approaching ground, the Skyjumper is slowed down for a controlled and safe landing.
How safe is it?
Very safe. But not soooooooooo safe that it isn't still a thrill. Where's the fun in that? New Zealand has been operating SkyJump for more than 10 years without injury. Before jumping, the Skyjumper will receive a short safety lesson from an extensively trained Jump Master.
How many riders?
SkyJump Las Vegas is a solo affair. It's limited to one Skyjumper at a time.
What do my friends do while I'm getting ready to jump?
Point and laugh. Whisper behind your back. Say their final goodbyes. Kidding! Your friends will be plenty entertained as they peruse the SkyJump store and purchase your fresh pair of underwear and other SkyJump trinkets. They can also pass the time enjoying the multiple other attractions in the Stratosphere Tower or by uploading embarrassing photos of you in your SkyJump jumpsuit to Facebook.
What if I want to do it again?
You will want to do it again. And you can, for $59.99, if you stay suited up and jump the same day or purchase the re-jump while purchasing the first jump. Or you can invest in a SkyJump package including a video of the jump, so you can relive the experience again and again.
How much time should I budget?
Between being suited up, taking the sweat-inducing ride to the 108th floor, undergoing multiple safety checks, standing on the ledge of the Tower and taking the 855-foot plunge, the experience totals about 35 to 45 minutes.
Is it scary?
You're about to jump off the 108th floor of a building and fall 855 feet at a scream-inducing speed! What do you think?
What else is there to do in the Tower other than SkyJump?
The Stratosphere Tower is the tallest observation tower in the U.S. and one of the most exciting attractions among Vegas Strip hotels with thrills you can't find anywhere else, including international shops and one-of-a-kind rides, like Big Shot, X-Scream and Insanity, the Ride. There are plenty of places to grab a drink, including AirBar on Level 108 and Level 107 Lounge. There's an award-winning restaurant, Top Of The World, and an international marketplace, the Tower Shops. The Observation Deck was voted year after year as "The Best Place To View Las Vegas" by the Las Vegas Review-Journal.
What if I chicken out after I've already paid?
Well, apart from embarking on a humiliating walk of shame past multiple leering tourists and all of your friends who are shouting chicken noises in your general direction, you will not be reimbursed. Sorry. You will receive a "Chicken Out" voucher for what was originally purchased and may be transferable to another person. And your friends may choose to purchase a Chicken shirt from the SkyJump store for you to wear.
Why do you need to know how much I weigh?
To ensure each individual jumper descends at the proper scream-inducing speed.
Do I need to wear special clothes?
No. You will be suited up in Stratosphere's custom "jumpsuit," slightly resembling a super hero costume, minus the cape and cosmic powers. We’ll provide you with a pair of Sky Shoes for jumping.
