Thrill Rides

There are those who come to Las Vegas to relax. Then there are the adrenaline junkies. You're also known as thrill seekers, and you know who you are. You come here to scream and shout while being whipped around at 70 mph on a heart-pounding roller coaster. Or to lose your lunch while dangling in mid-air on a ride 855 feet above the Las Vegas Strip. You have a serious need for speed, and that's why you'd rather take a supercar for a super fast spin than plop down by a sparkling pool. There will be plenty of time to relax when you're dead. Until then, we've got all the thrills you can handle -- the kind of thrills that will earn you major street cred with your friends back home. That fact alone is almost enough to get your adrenaline pumping. Almost.
