While this experience will take under an hour, it will be one of the most amazing things you’ve ever done in your life. Not only will you fly over Las Vegas and see its dazzling lights and blinking neon signs, you will also enjoy a complimentary champagne toast during the tour experience.
Taking Off on Your Adventure
Your helicopter will take off just after sundown, when all the action of the Vegas Strip begins. Make sure you book your flight early, as helicopters only hold six passengers. You definitely want to add this adventure if you vacation in Las Vegas, so it pays to plan far ahead of your arrival date.
What You Will See First
Once the helicopter takes off, it will travel northward to downtown Las Vegas. Shortly thereafter it will make a 180 degree turn south at the Strat Casino Hotel, and its main feature - the Stratosphere Tower. The observation tower of the resort complex is the largest structure of its kind in the U.S. It is located just north of the Vegas Strip.
Once you land, and when you have some time, you will have to visit the tower of the Strat. The hotel, which is separate from the Stratosphere, stands 24 stories high and features 2,427 rooms.
More about the Stratosphere Tower
The tower’s indoor observation deck can be found on the 108th floor and its outdoor deck is situated a floor above, on the 109th floor. You can enjoy wraparound views of the Las Vegas Valley from either viewpoint. Aside from a helicopter ride, these are the best views you can get while in Las Vegas.
The Stratosphere is also home to several thrill rides, including the Big Shot, which, at 1,081 feet, is the second highest thrill ride in the world. Insanity, which is the third highest ride at 900 feet, is also located at the tower. Other rides include the SkyJump, a Bungee-type ride that descends 855 feet, and XScream, whose car see-saws back and forth at 866 feet.
Needless to say, you won’t have any problem finding excitement and entertainment when you take a Las Vegas holiday. Whether you visit the Stratosphere or ascend in a helicopter, you can see some incredible views and sights. Naturally, you will want to do both when you make Las Vegas vacation plans, as you won’t want to miss out on seeing some of Vegas’ most popular sights.
Some of the Other Vegas Sights You Will See on Your Helicopter Adventure!
After turning at the Stratosphere, you will head south over the heart of Vegas. Some of the sights you will see include the following:
- Bellagio’s Dancing Water Fountains
- The Replica of Paris’s Eiffel Tower
- The MGM Emerald City
- The Skyline of New York, New York
- The Incomparable Luxor Pyramid
A Once-in-a-Lifetime Experience
After your sight-seeing extravaganza ends, you will land on a private helipad. While it is exciting to witness Las Vegas up-close, taking a helicopter flight at night makes your Vegas trip a once-in-a-lifetime journey!

Some Suggestions before You Go
When taking a helicopter, pull your hair back if it is long. Also, refrain from wearing loose jewelry. Closed-toed shoes should be worn instead of sandals for flip-flops. The rotor on the helicopter can increase the level of noise, but this will dissipate as the aircraft ascends. So, be prepared to experience some noise as the helicopter takes off or when it lands.
