Sky Combat Ace, Henderson
Imagine the swagger you’ll bring to the next meeting after executing loops, rolls and spins high above Vegas. That’s just one of the hands-on adventures offered by Nevada’s only civilian aerial combat training center, where expert fighter pilots guide guests to taking the controls on extreme air adventures.
With the Strip and desert mountains as backdrops, aerial encounters include Top Gun, where you chase an opponent through the Nevada skies like a real fighter pilot, and Adrenaline Rush, combining heart-pounding aerobatics with air-to-air dogfights.
Daytime sightseeing adventures in an open-cockpit biplane over the Hoover Dam and Red Rock Mountains are also available, as well as night flights over the city. Back on terra firma, SCA’s dynamic 9,000-square-foot hangar can accommodate events of up to 300 people, with additional outdoor space for larger gatherings.
Dream Racing, Las Vegas
Groups will “lap” up the thrills at this “Italian racing experience” at the Las Vegas Motor Speedway. The names will be familiar—Ferrari, Lamborghini, Porsche, McLaren—but the 130-mph experience of driving these high-performance race and street cars will rev the adrenaline like never before.
With a range of driving packages, including custom racing events, Dream Racing works with groups of from six to 300 people, with scaled discounts available for larger groups.
Providing luxurious meeting, product launch and conference facilities, including a restaurant and dining area, Dream Racing also offers customized event design support such as co-branded merchandise, decals, banners and conference room setup.
Flightlinez Bootleg Canyon, Boulder City
Home to desert wildlife such as bighorn sheep and offering 36 miles of mountain biking trails, ancient Bootleg Canyon Park, just 20 miles from the Strip, is the spectacular setting for this exhilarating “flight-lining” experience. Starting from atop 3,600-foot Red Mountain, four riders at a time descend in parallel down four separate runs.
“Dropping 400 feet in the first 10 seconds and reaching speeds up to 60 mph, our guests enjoy bird’s-eye views of Lake Mead and the Las Vegas and Eldorado valleys while traveling over 1.5 miles of ziplines,” says Brina Marcus, the company’s director of public relations, sales and marketing.
Created in part to help sustain the park, the program includes a tour spotlighting the history, ecology and geology of Bootleg Canyon.
