To the Moon . . .

The Stratosphere is one of the landmark buildings I think of when I think of Vegas.

Crazy people do crazy things here.  On one side of the top you can fling yourself off and freefall for about 850 feet.  You are attached to a couple of ropes/wires, but still . . .

They charge you $110 for the privileged.  The blue platform is where you jump from.  We saw a jumper when when I was on a bus tour.  It’s that little blur below the blue platform.

Supposedly, if you chicken out, you don’t get your money back but they will give you a tee shirt that tells the world you chickened out.  And they sell clean underwear at the gift shop, too.

On the other side there is this claw thing.  You sit in the cars and it spins you around.  Then it moves you out over the edge and keeps spinning you around.  That’s the green blur on the bottom right.

Neither one is for me, thanks!
