Imbibe and ride. Touch the sky aboard a panoramic ride and aerial experience inspired by aeronauts and aviators of past, present, and future. If you dare brave LIFTOFF’s guardian, Gilly, you’ll break the barriers between land and sky!

A proper toast with specialty libations and refreshments awaits you at the LIFTOFF Lounge before ascending up to the desert airspace. Then, you’ll step into the helix for an open-air balloon ride taking you up 130-feet high. At its apex, you’ll behold an extraordinary, 360-degree view of the Las Vegas Strip and vistas far and wide.

Take flight, day or night! At night, LIFTOFF energizes with a light spectacle rivaling the twinkling lights on the ground and beyond.
