X-Scream at the Stratosphere Las Vegas Reviews
Screaming at X-Scream Jun 16, 2011
X-Scream is one of three rides located on the top on the Stratosphere Tower in Las Vegas.
This is a toboggan type ride which runs on a pivoted track. As the toboggan shoots forward it runs off the edge of the tower and dangles it's riders over 900 feet in the air.
I have ridden the X-Scream on a few occasions now and every time I have been lucky enough to be in the front seat. The front seat provides the maximum effect of this ride and the feeling of shooting over the edge of the Stratosphere Tower is quite terrifying!
The ride dangles the riders in mid air before the toboggan withdraws back to the safety of the tower, only to immediately shoot forward and back over the edge again. This time however, the whole things drops several feet and your stomach lurches - remember this is over 900 feet in the air with just that terrible drop below!
The toboggan eventually withdraws back to the tower again but immediately shoots forward over the edge once more but this time at an angle diagonally downwards and you're facing the floor below as you are catapulted forwards.
This is a totally exhilarating ride and it is $12.00 very well spent if you're in Vegas and looking for the ultimate in toboggan rides. Highly recommended!
