Statosphere Tower

Thursday, February 3, 2005 2:10 PM
I was wondering if anyone else caught wind of this coaster that is suppose to run 700' downt he side of the tower and then "J" hook across the street up to 400'. I saw the model of it but couldn't find a link. it kind of looks stupid. they said it will only hit 120mph from 700'? that doesn't make much sence. They also said that arrow would be the designer if they decide to go with it. If i can find the link i will post it.

MForce - that is very, very old news and the project, by Arrow, was cancelled by Stratosphere long ago when it could not get approval from the city.

This is fairly old news, and had been talked about before.

From what I understand, they couldn't get permission to build the 700ft version, so the tried to get permission to build a 500 foot one. That also didn't go through. Now with Arrow's bankruptcy, and buy-out by S&S, I seriously doubt we will ever see it.

Interestingly enough, there's a new high rise condo tower that's going in at the corner of Las Vegas Blvd and Sahara (between the Strat and the Sahara). Its supposed to be 93 stories tall (not too much shorter than the Strat).

Those things are popping up all over town nowadays!

Man, that arrow fish hook would have been cool though, oh well they still have High Roller.
