The Stratosphere's Insanity has opened atop the tower, high above the Las Vegas strip. A local TV station has posted video.
Read more, see video from KVBC/Las Vegas.
As for Paul, he is a nice enought guy, and has never forced the ACE theology on me. However, I do not understand the banana joke, and second, I myself spend enough time in Vegas, as most of you know, that being it was a local news channel, you could have had a host of other local 'talent and characters' on the news. Example: Mayor Goodman, Bob Stupak (former Strat owner), Siegfried and Monteclore, Wayne Newton, and the list goes on.
The rides mgr. was REALLY awesome and friendly, and even apologetic, LOL, but who wants to get STUCK on the ride some 1150' above the Strip...malfunctions at that height are best to keep in the "better safe than sorry" category... ;)
P.S. X-Scream, aka Depends:The Ride....prob won't do THAT again...definitely not in the front again! You need the credit, I'll ride row 2 and YOU ride in the front... :)
P.P.S. KristinMarie and cedarit didn't even get to SEE it running I don't think, but they DID wait out the Fri. morning "non-ride" session...just SITTING on the platform while High Roller shakes the top of the tower is pretty *thrilling* to me...I do NOT like heights! ;)

Anyway, that's pretty, uh, insane. I have to be honest that I'm not sure if I'd be able to get on that ride.
Don't worry, I doubt very many people will get to ride this ride. "Hey, lets put a ride on top of the Stratosphere that can't run in 25mph winds, on a 1000ft tower...in the middle of the desert...where the wind blows HARD all the flippin' time!"
Yeah, that was real smart. *grumbles* At least XScream rocked my socks 3 times, and Big Shot 2...
