That’s why for a limited time, every Nevada local can experience the view near the top of the 1,149-foot Stratosphere Tower at no cost.
Beginning Sunday, February 22, 2015 and continuing through Saturday, February 28, 2015, bring a Nevada ID to the Stratosphere Ticket Center located on the casino level near Roxy’s Diner and receive a Tower Pass for free. Each adult will receive one free Tower pass. Tower admission will also be free for children under 18 years of age who are accompanied by an adult. (That’s a $56 value for a family of four!)
The Tower pass provides free access to Stratosphere’s Indoor and Outdoor Observation decks, each offering unmatched panoramic views of the Las Vegas Valley, mountain ranges and world famous Las Vegas Strip.
The Indoor Observation deck, located on Level 108, provides an incredible view from behind floor-to-ceiling windows, featuring helpful signs and facts about Las Vegas’ points of interest. The Outdoor Observation deck, on Level 109, is the highest viewing area in Las Vegas, allowing guests to soak in the spectacular sights in the open-air.
Those who wish to also experience the thrill rides on top of Stratosphere Tower, X-Scream, Insanity, and Big Shot, will need to purchase tickets. Rides are $15 each, or $28 for a wristband allowing unlimited rides per day.
“The Stratosphere Tower is known around the world. In fact, it is often used by television, newspaper and magazines to represent Las Vegas,” said Stratosphere Casino, Hotel & Tower general manager Paul Hobson. “We take pride in the Tower’s international iconic status and want the locals who live and work in and around our city to experience the million dollar views for free.”

The week long free Tower access for Nevada locals is another example of the Stratosphere Casino, Hotel & Tower’s commitment to “Take Vegas Back,” a fun, faux movement that embraces Las Vegas’ founding philosophies providing real fun for real people without all the pretense. Visitors who join the “Take Vegas Back” movement receive access to Stratosphere’s best room rates and a number of special values. Additional information can be found at www.TakeVegasBack.com
The free week of access for locals kicks off the property’s Random Acts of Rewards, a series of surprise benefits bringing value and fun back to Las Vegas for those who play and stay at the Stratosphere Casino, Hotel & Tower. Many employees, from the property’s general manager on down, will be surprising Stratosphere guests with on-the-spot Random Acts of Rewards, offering guests the kind of “freebies” you won’t find anywhere else on the Strip. Surprises could include one or more of the following: a “comped” meal, free drinks, tickets to see PIN UP featuring Claire Sinclair, free Thrill Rides, free hotel stays and more.
