For many who come to Las Vegas, the gaming tables provide excitement enough. But guests at the 2,427-room Stratosphere Las Vegas Hotel & Casino now have the option of leaping from what the property touts as the world's tallest SkyJump attraction, at 829 feet, eclipsing the record set by the 764.4-foot SkyJump at the Macau Tower Convention and Entertainment Center.

First, however, jumpers have to brave the cost of $99.99 per person before they can enjoy the adrenaline rush of a free-fall experience and unparalleled views of Sin City.

The hotel also offers considerably more solid space that can accommodate gatherings of up to 1,500 people. (800) 99-TOWER; stratospherehotel.com.
