The Stratosphere Casino and Hotel has the tallest free-standing observation tower in the United States. The Stratosphere Tower is 1,149 feet tall, making it the tallest building west of the Mississippi River. Built on the north end of the Vegas Strip, the Stratosphere opened in 1996. The hotel features over 2,400 suites and guestrooms as well as 80,000-square feet of gaming space. The retail space at the Tower contains over 50 shops and restaurants.
High Roller closed permanently on December 30, 2005. While a couple of other rides currently operate on the tower, no replacement coaster has been built.
