First you blast straight up 160 feet with a force of 4 G's
(same as the space shuttle take-off)
experience a couple seconds
of weightlessness, and then free-fall back down to where
you started - and it's all over (for your heart, that is!)
Now take all that, and put it 1000 feet above the Las Vegas
Strip. That's what you'll find with the Big Shot ride
perched atop the Stratosphere. It's
an experience you won't soon forget, and the view is
spectacular (if you can keep your eyes open!)
Most people have a hard time remembering, but for the best
experience just relax and DO NOT hold on the the harness.
That way, when you get to the top, you lift right off your
seat and float, over a thousand feet in the air, completely
weightless. Mmmm... taste that adreneline!
