Stratosphere Hotel and Casino

The thrill is an understatement. A fine dining experience with a panoramic view is also offered atop the Stratosphere at the Top of The World restaurant.

GAMEWORKS, the Ultimate Virtual Reality Experience

For those who would rather seek their thrills virtually, there is GAMEWORKS, a gaming facility born from the union of Sega Enterprises and Universal Studios. On the south end of the Strip, it is located next to the MGM hotel and across from the Monte Carlo Resort. GAMEWORKS offers everything from bowling to auto racing in the world of virtual reality.
