by Susan and Simon Veness

Area15, the newest immersive art and entertainment district in Las Vegas, is due to open RISE—An Elevated Bar Experience this fall, offering a 360-degree view of the city from 131 feet in the air, all with a drink in hand!

Aerophile, the global leader in tethered balloons, has created a first-of-its-kind experience with RISE—An Elevated Bar Experience, a 131-foot observation tower in the Area15 experiential entertainment district, with a spectacular view over the Las Vegas Strip and surrounding areas.

The experience begins at the base of the tower in full-service bar Oasis, where visitors request their beverage of choice (alcoholic or non-alcoholic) before embarking on a 7-minute ride to the top of the tower.

But this is Las Vegas, baby, so you just know there has to be a thrilling twist!

With a bracing beverage in hand for courage, adrenaline fueled visitors are securely strapped into one of the tower’s 16 gondola seats, with their feet dangling in the air, before making the upward journey to the summit.

Hold on to your cocktail, because the gondola makes a full 360-degree rotation during your ride toward the sky, for an unforgettable panoramic view of the Las Vegas horizon and beyond. Jaw-dropping by day, it’s simply spectacular by night.

The attraction is family-friendly, with under-21s offered a selection of soft drinks to enjoy during their ride. Tickets start at $18 for adults and $12 for children (must be at least 42 inches tall), and sales will begin this fall.

Located just minutes from the Strip, Area15 also features live music, immersive art installations, unusual retail, heavily-themed bars and restaurants, mind-boggling attractions such as Wink World: Portals Into The Infinite and the funky, surreal surroundings of Meow Wolf’s Omega Mart, plus much more. At this time, masks are required for all guests while inside AREA15.
