Las Vegas SkyJump Experience

Located atop of the Stratosphere Casino, Hotel & Tower in Las Vegas, the SkyJump Experience is a controlled free fall attraction, 855 feet above the Las Vegas Strip. 

Jumpers literally leap off the platform on the 108th floor to descend 855 feet to the landing pad below. 

Jumpers must be wearing a jumper suit which looks like a pilot plane clothing and they're holding up to a sort of bumper jumper. 

Today I witnessed Jim, Captain Morgan, from Pennsylvania, jumping. Jim is visiting Las Vegas for a week

He said he was just a "little nervous" jumping the 855 feet. He will also ride the VooDoo ZipLine. He is really Brave. Click here for the video.
