Following her decent, Ruby J., the 200,000th jumper, was surprised on the landing pad by Stratosphere staff and welcomed with champagne, balloons, confetti and a grand prize package valued at $2,000. The package consists of a seven-day cruise to Mexico on Norwegian Cruise Lines, a three-night stay at Stratosphere, SkyJump merchandise and a “Take Vegas Back” package with cocktails and food at Level 107 Lounge and Radius°.

“We’re excited to have reached the 200K Day SkyJump landmark so quickly,” said Tim Kuykendall, Vice President of Hotel Operations at Stratosphere Hotel, Casino & Tower. “It reminds us how popular and enjoyed the attraction is, proving that it is a thrill unlike anything else in Las Vegas or North America, for that matter.”

Opened in 2010, SkyJump Las Vegas, a Guinness World Record holder, is a controlled 855-foot drop from the top of the iconic Stratosphere Tower. Riders of SkyJump Las Vegas are suited up in a special jumpsuit and connected to a high-speed “descender” machine. Under the supervision of trained SkyJump personnel, the jumper is escorted to the edge of a small platform where they step out and descend the full 108-story height of the Stratosphere Tower in approximately 17 seconds. Prior to reaching the ground, the “descender” machine slows the jumper down, bringing the jumper to a controlled and safe landing.

SkyJump Las Vegas Hours: Sunday to Thursday, 10 a.m. – 1 a.m.; Friday and Saturday, 10 a.m. – 2 a.m.

SkyJump Las Vegas Packages: $109.99 per jump; $119.99 for jump and photo package; and $139.99 for jump and wristcam video package. Nevada locals and Take Vegas Back members receive a $20 discount. For additional information about SkyJump Las Vegas, please visit stratospherehotel.com
