The ride to get this scenic vista is $9 for adults, and only $6 for childen, residents of Nevada, and seniors. You will hurtle towards your destination at a rate of 1,800 feet a minute.

Once you reach the top of the tower, you can visit the gift shop, and there is a short hair raising ride to take if you dare, and a restaurant aptly named the Top of the Tower. The observation deck is used for sunbathing in the summer, and on cold winter nights the views of the strip are just as lovely.
