The Stratosphere Casino Hotel and Tower is to create the next ultimate, extreme thrill ride called Insanity-The Ride -- set to open in early 2005. Stratosphere is again partnering with amusement industry leader Interactive Rides of Logan, Utah to create this aggressive thrill ride. Insanity-The Ride, will dangle riders and spin them over the edge of the Stratosphere Tower's Outdoor Observation Deck more than 900 feet above Las Vegas, announced American Casino & Entertainment Properties officials.

Insanity-The Ride, described as an inverted centrifuge, will be a one-of-kind attraction that is sure to gain a worldwide reputation as one of the most intense themed attractions built anywhere. Insanity-The Ride will be the fourth and final major thrill ride attraction to be built atop the Stratosphere Tower, which has become known for having a variety of unique amenities and attractions. The new ride will hold 10 passengers in "escape proof" seats as it spins at 40 m.p.h. The key to the ride is that thrill seekers experience a centrifugal force of three "G's" while being spun out 64 feet past the edge of the Stratosphere Tower-overlooking the City of Las Vegas more than 900 feet below.

Check out a video of the new ride here.
