    When I'm back in Vegas in January I'm planning on bringing my GoPro with me.

    Does anyone know if I can wear my GoPro on the rides at the Stratosphere , or the Zipline down town?

    I know I CAN'T wear it on the rollercoaster at NYNY.

    Thanks!
    Darren

    I've seen people using GoPros on the zip line downtown.

    people use them on the roller coaster all the time. you need to either sneak it on depending how you will hold it or use the chest strap so it is secure....theres a few videos on youtube of people on the coaster filming

    I wanted to take my Gopro on Slotzilla. Their website states that they are not allowed. I assume it is mostly because they want to sell the footage or pics that they take.

    Have it on pretty good authority that a GoPro is not allowed on the the rides on top of Stratosphere. You can purchase a video option with the fourth adventure, the SkyJump package, however

    I actually think it's a safety thing. No matter how good a job you think you've done securing it, if that thing goes flying, someone can get seriously hurt, whether on the ride or on the ground. Selling footage and pics might be an extra benefit, but there are legitimate safety concerns with something like that.

    I know the Rio makes you empty all your pockets and locks everything in a locker. They let us take a couple pics from the deck though first. They as the others have said sell vids and pics on site.
