Top 6 Extreme activities – only in Las Vegas


Mention Vegas to anyone and it will instantly make them think of one thing. Gambling. It's a massive part of the appeal of Vegas. There's something so exciting about playing the one armed bandits whilst sipping a martini.


You could easily spend your entire trip going from one casino to another, but there's so much more to explore. Whilst rolling double sixes on the craps table may get the adrenaline pumping, nothing will get it pumping more than getting involved in some of the extreme activities available in Vegas.

Las Vegas is unlike any other city in the world. Where else could you head to the shooting range, drive a real Nascar and even experience zero gravity? 

High Roller Suites arranges more extreme activities than you could ever wish for.  Director Andrew Boas says “It is only when you really get to know Vegas that you appreciate the unbelievable variety it offers, not least for adrenaline junkies!”

Gun shooting
Ever fancied firing a grenade launcher, or maybe you're more of the handgun type. Guns include glocks, Uzi, M6 rifles, machine guns, desert eagles and more. Prices start from £40 (Including transfers)

Sky Diving 
Get a bird's eye view of the entire desert from 15,000 feet. Fly and leap out across the Mojave Desert taking in the awesome surroundings. Prices start from £130.

Zero G 
There isn't a person in the world who hasn't wondered what it feels like to be in space. In Vegas it's possible to experience the weightlessness of zero gravity. This is one of only a handful of places in the world where you can truly be free, of gravity. Taking off in a specially modified Boeing 727, the aircraft performs parabolic arcs during flight to create a weightless environment allowing you to float, flip and soar as if you were in space. Prices start from £3100.

Nascar Racing 
Experience driving in a real Nascar, reaching speeds you’ve only ever dreamed of. Either as a passenger or behind the wheel, this is guaranteed to get the heart beating faster than ever before. Prices start from £65.

ZIP Line 
Bootleg Canyon – up to 80mph across 4 zip lines over an incredible 1.5miles. Prices start from £100 (Including Transfers).

Dune buggies 
With so much desert, it would be mad not to try out dune buggy racing. Challenge friends and family to beat you to the finish line. Be prepared to get very dusty. Prices start from £60.

Las Vegas is a place of true adventure, far beyond just gambling at the casinos. If you want some real stories to tell, get outside and get the adrenaline really pumping.
