Vegas’s biggest thrillLas Vegas, USA
You’ve been up all night, trying your luck at the tables and your eyelids are drooping. To cure all symptoms of fatigue instantly, head to SkyJump Las Vegas at the top of the Stratosphere. Standing 108 storeys (or 260 metres) above the earth, toes hanging off the edge of the ledge, your heart will be pounding faster than that of a gambling addict on a roll. This isn’t a free fall, but rather a controlled descent (a bit like a vertical zip-line). Still, you’ll reach speeds of more than 60 kilometres an hour. Be warned: if you wimp out, the folks at the SkyJump gift shop will be happy to sell your friends their famous ‘chicken’ t-shirt on your behalf.
