Speed the Ride can be found at the Sahara Hotel in Las Vegas, and is an adrenaline seekers dream come true. This rollercoaster catapults you at up to 70 m.p.h down a 1,350 ft track, through a 360 degree loop and into an intense 224 foot climb up a tower. Now before you think the fun is over you get to do it all again but this time in reverse. Speed the ride is by far the fastest roller coaster in town and also one of the best deals.
Also at the Sahara is a Indy car simulator ride called Speedworld. Speedworld enables you to get behind the wheel of a Grand Prix race car in an interactive race against other people, or you can choose to watch a 3-D motion simulator movie. The interactive race lasts about eight minutes and upon completion you will be given a computerized report detailing how you finished.
Prices for tickets to Speed the Ride are $10 per ride or $13 all day. The Speedworld interactive simulator costs $10 and the 3-D movie is $5. For additional information call the Sahara at (702)737-2111
The Amazing Johnathan has been called “The Freddy Krueger of Comedy,” and for good reason. The last few years Amazing Johnathan has been playing to sold out houses every night. He has had more appearances on TV then any comic/magician in history and is a regular on such shows as Late Night with David Lettermen, Entertainment Tonight and HBO.
Amazing Johnathan has been touted by Rolling Stone magazine as “one of the top road comics working today” and the New York Times has claimed, “the faces of the audience said it all*unbelievable!” In addition, Amazing Johnathan has been recognized by the Las Vegas Review-Journal’s “Best of Las Vegas” awards with “Best Show” and “Best Comedian”.
If you’re looking for a completely hillarious show there’s no doubt that the Amazing Johnathan can fit the bill. Just make sure you buy your admission in advance, as tickets for the show sell out fast.
The Amazing Johnathan is currently performing at the Sahara Hotel.
