The STRAT Hotel, Casino and SkyPod making New Year's history

18 December 2020

(PRESS RELEASE) -- One lucky winner will make history and become Las Vegas' "ball drop" at The STRAT Hotel, Casino and SkyPod this New Year's Eve. With The STRAT's "Midnight Mirror Ball" sweepstakes, one winner will be selected to jump from the iconic casino's SkyJump attraction at the stroke of midnight on Thursday, 31 December. The winner will also receive an exclusive, celebratory experience to share with three guests on New Year's Eve.

SkyJump Powered by MTN DEW is a heart-pounding, open-air controlled descent with speeds topping 40 mph from 855 feet above the Las Vegas Strip. The attraction holds a Guinness World Record as the highest commercial decelerator descent facility.

The "Midnight Mirror Ball" sweepstakes winner will receive a grand prize New Year's Eve package including the SkyJump from the SkyPod tower at midnight; SkyPod admission and unlimited thrill rides wristbands for the winner and three guests; an invitation for four to a private party in the SkyPod tower from 9 – 10:30 p.m. which will include complimentary cocktails, a selection of hors d'oeuvres, hats and noisemakers; two complimentary rooms for a one-night stay on Thursday, Dec. 31 at The STRAT Hotel; one bottle of Dom Perignon to toast to the new year after leaping from the tower; and one digital video of the SkyJump experience.

Participants may enter to win on The STRAT's Instagram page, @STRATvegas, beginning Friday, Dec. 11.
