A shame this was never built. I already jumped off the building. What's a puny skywalk?

By the way, now it's called "The Strat"?

Horrible name and pitiful attempt to sound hip.

The former name described perfectly what the building was about. The new name sounds like a stupid moniker for a WWE wrestler.

They could just go back to calling it "Stupak's Shaft." That's pretty hip!

I did the Grand Canyon Skywalk -- Very overrated.

Isn't there a club at Rio or Palms that has glass floors so you look down 50 flights or so?

I honestly thought the Stratosphere went out of business a couple years ago.

How are they still around?

Yes, it's at the Palms. It's rather small and located in whatever that nightclub is way up there.

It used to be called Ghost Bar years ago. Not sure if it still is

The many rides/attractions on top of the building, not to mention the observation deck with the great views, keep "The Strat" in business (I really despise that new name).

The low hotel rates help too.

I actually like their two outdoor pools. And Roxy's is really good as far as diner food goes.

The casino floor itself, like Circus Circus, is in desperate need of a makeover (along with some of the hotel rooms).
