World’s Largest Ferris Wheel Opened Yesterday in Las Vegas [PHOTOS]
Las Vegas has got another crazy thrill ride for you to try out on your next visit.
I have been to Las Vegas before and I wanted to try out all the crazy thrill rides while I was there. I know Circus Circus, New York New York and Sahara all had roller coasters. The Sahara is now closed, but I did ride the New York New York roller coaster super early in the morning wasted on tequila. Note to self, don't do that, my uncle was so wasted he didn't even remember riding and asked why in the hell he had a wristband from New York New York on his wrist.
The big thrill rides are at the Stratosphere hotel. They have four extreme thrill rides. Big Shot, a ride that shoots you up a tower, similar to Superman at Six Flags over Texas. Insanity a ride that takes you off the side of the building and spins you in a circle. X-Scream a cart type ride that takes you off the side of the building making it seem like you are falling off the side. Did I mention all of these rides are 1,149 ft. in the air. Yeah, if you need a thrill trust me its awesome.

The Stratosphere also has the greatest thrill ride I have ever done in my entire life. It is called Sky Jump and you just jump off the side of the Stratosphere hotel. You are in this crazy harness and I still can't believe I did it. Below is the actual footage of me jumping off the stratosphere.

Well Las Vegas has done it again with the worlds largest ferris wheel. It is 550 feet tall and it opened yesterday. I think if you rode this thing at night with all of Vegas lit up it would be one amazing sight.
