For years, bungee jumping in Las Vegas was as simple as climbing an outdoor platform visible from the famed Vegas Strip. But then the AJ Hackett Bungy closed, leaving thrill-seekers at ground level. Fortunately for those who want to take a flying leap in Vegas, there are now two casinos that offer jumpers heart-pumping experiences defying gravity.

Bungee Jumping Basics

Bungee jumping is an extreme sport that consists of jumping off a very high platform - a bridge or building, for example - while tethered to a fixed point by a length of elastic cording. As the cording stretches and contracts, the jumper bounces up and down and eventually lands far beneath the jumping-off point. No advance training is required. Equipment is provided by the jump operator, who can limit activity due to insurance or local and state regulations.

SkyJump Las Vegas

Located at - and on - the Stratosphere Las Vegas Hotel & Casino, SkyJump is less of a bungee jump and more of a controlled free fall: The exhilaration is the same but without the bouncing. Jumpers start on the 108th floor of the casino tower with a quick safety lesson. After donning a jumpsuit and harness, a short elastic line tethered to guide wires is strapped on. The next step is 855 feet straight down. The harness slows the rider prior to landing just 15 seconds later.

Considerations

SkyJump is the only one of its kind in the United States and is the highest jump in the world. Due to its outdoor location, SkyJump is affected by the weather. Jumps are canceled when wind speed is greater than 44 mph. Lightening, rain and snow also bring jumps to a halt. Tickets must be purchased before heading up to the 108th floor and are not refundable. Jumpers who change their mind get just one second chance to take the leap; there are no third tries. Personal belongings go into lockers or can be held by friends. Non-jumpers must pay for admission to the Tower.

Xtreme Zone Bungee Jumping

The Xtreme Zone at Circus Circus's Adventure Dome offers indoor bungee trampoline jumps. Bungee trampolines are a variation on both traditional bungee jumping and free falling, where the jumper wears a harness attached to elastic cords anchored to vertical lift poles that move higher as the jumps grow in vertical height. The jumper can do flips and move around with a greater range of motion than is experienced in a free fall.

Plan Ahead

The Xtreme Zone at Adventuredome does not participate in the one-ticket covers all admission that the other activities use. Jumps sessions range from three to five minutes depending upon crowds. Guest lockers are available for storage throughout the dome and ATMs are on site. Bad weather doesn't stop jumps, but routine maintenance may, so check the casino's website for current availability.
