STRAT Tower Skypod Observation Deck reviews

Here are some reviews for the STRAT Tower Skypod Observation Deck to make your trip easier.

An hour or two well spent

This is one of the things you just have to do while in Vegas. A bit pricey at around US$25 to get to the top (not including the thrill rides), but the views whilst having a couple of drinks make it a worthwhile way to spend a couple of hours.

Daniel Matless, TripAdvisor

What a view!

Wow, this was so much better than any of us expected. The observation deck is nicely kept (you can get food, drinks, and souvenirs). The views are amazing! There are so many places to sit, relax, and enjoy the view. Some of our group also did the rides and enjoyed them, but I think the observation deck was just as cool.
