    You can zipline out at Bootleg Canyon. Costs around $160.

    You can do a tandem parachute jump down at Jean or over at Boulder City. Both cost around $200.

    You can jump of the top of the Stratosphere for around $110.

    Jet ski on Lake Mead for around $100 for an hour.

    ATV through the Mojave desert to Primm, for around $160.

    I have done all of the above, apart from the zipline, although I have done the one down on Fremont Street.

    They are extending the zipline on Fremont street which should be open soon.

    And there are plans to build a zipline from the Voodoo lounge at the Rio, down to the Ipanema Tower, 400 feet below. Sounds awesome.

    Hubby and I have done the ziplines in Bootleg Canyon several times. It is an awesome adrenaline rush! The company picks you up at Excalibur and drives you to their office in Boulder City for weigh in and safety equipment training.
    There is some hiking involved: from the van up a small hill to the first line; from the end of the first line to the beginning if the second; likewise the third and fourth lines. The you hike back down a bit to the parking area where the van awaits to take you back to the office (to drop off harnesses and pick up items left in the lockers), and then on to your hotel.

    Their website is www . BCflightlines . Com

    If you can stand prices in the $150-$500 range, then there are still others I can recommend:
    (1) rock climbing (no prior experience necessary)
    (2) rock scrambling (a cross between hiking and rock climbing)
    (3) dune buggies (tours range from sedate, to mild racing, to there-are-the-dunes-don't-kill-yourself)
    (4) indoor "skydiving" (this is a "mere" $75)
    (5) land sailing (like a sailboat with wheels, on dry land)
    (6) rock crawling (using specially configured high clearance four wheel drive vehicles)

    Check out Exotics Racing. Driving a Ferrari on a racetrack was one hell of a rush.
