Trends, fashion, celebrities, events, music, and all things only Vegas
Every trip to Las Vegas is exciting, but some people want more excitement than others. If you're a thrill-seeker, Las Vegas has plenty of ways for you to get your adrenaline rushing. How about swimming with the sharks? Inside the Shark Reef Aquarium at Mandalay Bay, there are no cages -just you, 1.3 million gallons of underwater real estate, and more than 30 sharks, including Sandtiger, Sandbar and White Tip Reef sharks.
Prefer wind over water? Hook up to a harness at the new Fremont Street Flightlinez cruise down a zip line right over the crowds on Fremont Street and under the giant video canopy. For some zip lining with a little less neon, head out to Boulder City for Bootleg Canyon Flightlines.
If you love roller-coasters, head down to Buffalo Bill's in Primm and see how you hold up against the Desperado's Turbo Drop, a 255-foot nosedive that highlights one of the world's tallest and fastest scream machines. Or twist, loop and dive around New York City with the Coney Island-style coaster at New York-New York.
In Las Vegas, the sky is the limit. Well, almost. The SkyJump at the Stratosphere is about as you can get for a thrill ride. At 108 stories, it's the highest controlled free fall in the world. It really is the best way to see the city, hurtling towards your face at a ridiculous speed.
