When you think of Las Vegas, you probably think neon, casinos, cocktails and extreme hedonism – not really the place for outdoor adventure travel?
The theme of my year so far seems to have been about being harnessed into something extreme a lot of the time (and I’m not talking about Fifty Shades of Grey!). So I when I came across the Skyjump at the Stratosphere, I decided that North America’s highest Skyjump was worth a try…
Believe it or not I’m not so fond of heights. For anyone else out there who isn’t and would like to give something like this a go, the thing that separates a Skyjump off a tower from a bungy jump is that the fall speed is controlled. This was a 45mph fall whereas a bungy jump is a free-fall at speeds dependent on your body weight.
Skyjump is available in a few different locations worldwide, including Auckland in my native country, New Zealand where it originated.
Do you have any experiences or suggested activities for outdoor adventure travel in Las Vegas? Please comment below.
