Las Vegas offers plenty of thrills, but Big Shot stands literally and figuratively above the rest. It shoots riders up 160 feet at 45 mph. With the tower, that means you’re 1,081 feet above ground. You can’t beat the thrill … or the view. At Stratosphere. Sun.–Thurs., 10 a.m.-1 a.m.; Fri., Sat. and holidays, 10 a.m.-2 a.m. Tower tickets $12-$16. Ride ticket $13. Packages begin at $22.
