How to Get a Little Out of Hand in Vegas

You could see a show. You could lose money playing blackjack. Or you could spend some of your free time outside of EDC doing things a bit more... dune-buggy-ish and automatic-weapon-y. Sure, that can be arranged.

Sky Combat Ace 

There’s some saying about how things that occur in Vegas shouldn’t leave the vicinity. But you’re going to want to tell someone, anyone, that you just flew some vintage warplanes in actual combat simulations. Also, you’ll probably want to get a few pictures.

Machine Guns Vegas

It’s a gun club. But it’s a gun club where you’ll shoot automatic weapons while spandex-clad ladies supply a steady stream of refreshments. Sounds about Vegas.

Sun Buggy

Limos on the Strip are great, but on occasion, it’s nice to explore Vegas from something else. Something like a dune buggy. And you can do just that with the Mini Baja Chase, a speedy jaunt through the Nevada desert that requires a helmet and a roll cage.

Exotics Racing

Because sometimes, you just want to drive a Ferrari. Or a Lamborghini. Or some other supercar that goes zero to 60 in holy-hell-that’s-fast. For that, there’s these guys. So buckle up and prepare to zip around the Las Vegas Motor Speedway. And bring a comb for dealing with the aftermath.

If Red Bull gives you wings, here’s the place to use them: a 108-story free fall from the top of the Stratosphere. Should be fun. Or terrifying. Or at least not boring.
