    THE Greatest video is of the two guys who "base-jumped" off the top of the Stratosphere . It's on youtube under "Stratosphere Base Jump."

    And, no, you can't try it now. They search all bags and xray them too.

    I am guessing you are referring to a specific one. I went to youtube and found lots of normal jumps. Can you paste the link to the one you are referring to?

    I dont trust these sort of things in vegas. At an amusement park they have full time staff that maintain and inspect them. in vegas they have carl who comes in hungover and says he inspected it.

    Here you go.



    This is a REAL base jump and not the "official" "free fall."

    I would be up for it, I have done the rides on the top including Skyjump so this would be pretty easy.

    I find that it is easier for me to do these things after a few drinks.

    I've ridden a lot of roller coasters in my life but the most scared I can ever remember being before any ride was the seconds before the Big Shot launched us into the air. A skywalk seems like a walk in the park after that.
