AREA15, Las Vegas’ immersive art, events and entertainment district announced an opening date for “LIFTOFF” — a panoramic skyline experience. Located next to Art Island in front of AREA15, the new attraction is an open-air ride providing views of the Vegas skyline and mountains, which will be debuting on February 3, 2022. At the base of LIFTOFF is LIFTOFF Lounge, a full-service bar and open-air lounge inspired by aeronauts and aviators seeking the exhilaration of flight and the vistas only high-altitude vantage points can offer.
The imbibe-and-ride experience begins at the LIFTOFF Lounge located at the base of the steel tower designed as a triple helix. Guests can choose from a selection of alcoholic and non-alcoholic drinks to enjoy aboard the ride. Guests will then be strapped into their seat with their feet dangling in the air before ascending to the 130-foot summit with the Las Vegas skyline as their background.
Constructed from over 44 tons of steel, LIFTOFF features lighting and sound capabilities that will be integrated into every ride to create an immersive experience for all riders. The ride lasts 7 minutes and features a 16-seat gondola that rotates 360-degrees.
Manufactured by Aerophile, LIFTOFF will be the first of its kind built in the United States.
