If you're in the mood for a thrilling ride, consider one of many Las Vegas vacation attractions along the world famous Las Vegas Strip.

Winding and turning through the replica of the New York City skyline, pass by the Statue of Liberty, the Brooklyn Bridge, and of course, the Empire State Building, The Manhattan Express is a thrill of a lifetime. This exciting ride can reach speeds of 67 miles an hour and will send you into a 540-degree spiral.
Another thrilling ride is located a bit further down the main strip in Las Vegas. The Stratosphere is host to a couple of the most extreme rides in the world. The Big Shot, located on the roof of the eighth tallest building in the world, takes you from the bottom of the large needle to the top in just over two seconds! Though this may not seem like much, know that the needle is 160 feet tall and passengers feel the force of four G's. Astronauts feel only 3.2 G's at liftoff! For the ultimate thrill ride however, venture across the roof to the X Scream thrill ride. Those of you who view yourself as a risk taker may find yourself rethinking things when faced with this ride. An arm stretches 27 feet off the edge, and there is nothing at the end of it except a rounded off edge. Hop onto the eight passenger, open seating rail car and speed toward the edge at 30 MPH. Just when it feels like you're done for, an advanced hydraulics system stops the car just inches before you plummet to the ground below!
