When it comes to these S&S vertical tower rides, I must admit that I am a bigger fan of the Space Shot versions. In fact, when its a combo tower, I will head to the space shot side first every time. Big Shot is your standard S&S Space Shot, and it is of a modest height at about 160 feet. The ride produces fantastic airtime at the top of the launch, as is the standard with these types of rides. If it were on the ground, I would be giving it a healthy 8 for its fine thrills at a modest height. However, Big Shot gets a 2 point bump to a full ten for three reasons - location, location, location!! This bad boy sits at a staggering 921 feet above the ground, near the very TOP of the Stratosphere Tower in Vegas! The visuals on the ride are nothing short of unbelievable, and I rode at night which was simply amazing! When launched from that high of a starting point, it feels as though youre just going to keep flying up to the moon! The folks at the Stratosphere certainly brought their "A" game when adding their thrill rides, and this one is no exception. This is simply a must for any thrill seekers who make the trip to Vegas. Big Shot is a phenominal tower ride that delivers a great ride, copious airtime, and the hands-down BEST view found on any thrill ride around!
