Crazy (But Fun) Things To Do In Las Vegas
You might not realize it, but there are many weird and wonderful things you can do with your time in Nevada’s most popular city! If you’re planning a trip to “Sin City” soon, check out these crazy but fun things to do in Las Vegas.
Bungee Jumping from the Stratosphere Tower
If you ever wanted to experience something that is both fun and terrifying simultaneously, you need to add the Strat’s Sky Jump to your bucket list! It’s one of those experiences that you’ll remember for the rest of your life, and isn’t something you are likely to do regularly!
The Sky Jump is their heart-pounding-screaming version of bungee jumping, an open-air leap from 829 feet off the Stratosphere Tower. This tower is also known as the tallest freestanding tower in the United States, even holding a Guinness World Record as the highest commercial decelerator descent facility.
The Big Apple Coaster at New York New York
One of my favorite fun things to do in Las Vegas is to ride The Big Apple Coaster. A 67 mph thrill ride on a roller coaster located on top of the New York New York Hotel & Casino.
Bird’s Eye View of Las Vegas in a Helicopter
Do you enjoy taking your Vegas to the skies? If the answer’s yes, you need to take a tour of Las Vegas from the air (including helicopter tour at night!) — or take a longer ride and visit the Grand Canyon by airplane or by bus, or helicopter. Several helicopter tour companies operate in the city and offer you the chance to see Las Vegas in a chartered chopper. Narrated tours and plenty of photograph opportunities create the ideal helicopter tour.
Dance the Night Away at the Encore Beach Club
Whether you’re a party-goer or not, spending the evening in one of Las Vegas’s most exclusive nightclubs should be on your list. It’s a great way to relax, have fun, and be in the company of like-minded people. It’s not as hard as you might think getting on the Encore Beach Club guest list, so it’s well worth a visit.
Get Upfront and Personal with Sharks
Let’s face it: many people that come close to a shark don’t usually get the chance to leave such a chance encounter with all their limbs intact! But, the good news is you can get upfront and personal with a plethora of sharks from the safe confines of the Shark Reef Aquarium in Mandalay Bay!
There are 100+ sharks and thousands of other marine animals there that you can observe from a safe distance. Plus, there’s even an underwater transparent tunnel you can walk through where you can see the sharks and marine animals swimming around.
Last but not least, if you’ve been with your life partner for a long time but haven’t made things “official” yet, why not do so in Las Vegas? It’s a city famous for being a wedding hotspot and it’s certainly a memorable way to tie the knot.
Did you know there are almost five-dozen wedding chapels in Las Vegas? Choose from a variety of settings for couples to get married. In a hurry? Consider drive-through chapels for time-conscious couples!
