Stratosphere Leap Year Jump for Macmillan in Vegas

Nigel Davis Takes the Leap at Stratosphere Tower for Macmillan Cancer Support!

If you've ever been to Las Vegas, you'll probably be familiar with Stratosphere, the 1,149-foot-tall hotel and casino that towers above the famous Strip.

And if you're the adventurous type, you may also know there's some fun to be had at the top in the form of three hair-raising amusement rides. But now there's a fourth.

Claiming the title of the world's highest commercial decelerated descent, the SkyJump takes thrill-seekers on an 855-foot ‘controlled free-fall’ at 40mph - think base jumping, but with a safety wire.

Queuing up for his safety lesson, suited up and hooked-up to a patented ‘descender machine’ before taking a leap this 29th of February off the small platform, will be Nigel Davis, a company merchandiser from the Telford based Luceco Group.

Nigel, based at the group’s central office and distribution site on Stafford Park, will be the first employee to hit the fundraising trail to help raise funds for Macmillan Cancer Support, the charity chosen by employees recently at the global electrical, lighting and power business.

Nigel said, “The SkyJump, a cross between a bungee jump and a zip line, has become the premiere attraction among the thrill rides offered at the Stratosphere. From jump to landing, it takes about 17 seconds, with two terrifying seconds of free fall at the start.

“When I announced I was off to Vegas, and considering doing the jump, we had just chosen our charity of the year and it made perfect sense to do the jump to raise money for Macmillan.

“So, I’m looking forward to being whisked by elevator to the observation deck on the 108th floor of the Stratosphere Tower and jumping off, but not until I have raised a few pennies in the process.”
