New Roller Coaster Planned For Strip

(Las Vegas, NV) — Thrill seekers may soon be able to get a new kick on the Las Vegas Strip.

A developer has submitted plans for a roller coaster on the Tropicana hotel property.

At 650-feet tall, it would be the world’s tallest roller coaster.

U.S. Thrill Rides wants to spend $100 million on what they call a “Polercoaster”, an attraction combining a roller coaster and observation tower.

The FAA will determine whether the planned structure poses a hazard to flights at nearby McCarran Airport.
