If you’re looking for a good dose of craziness to spice up your life, at least for two minutes, ride Insanity at the Stratosphere, 2000 Las Vegas Blvd. South.
This ride is aptly named, because it dangles riders over the edge of the Stratosphere tower, then spins them around as fast as 45 mph. It is designed to give riders the feeling of hovering unrestrained in the air.
The ride operates from 10 a.m. to 1 a.m. Sundays through Thursdays, and 10 a.m. to 2 a.m. Fridays and Saturdays.
Tickets cost $16 for tower admission and one ride for locals with Nevada identification. Admission and one ride for nonlocals is $16.95. An all-day package with unlimited rides costs $30.95. For more information, call the box office at 380-7711.
