LAS VEGAS (FOX5) -
It's the 1,149-foot iconic landmark that distinguishes the Las Vegas skyline, and now locals can take in its high-rising splendor for free.
The Stratosphere Tower is offering a complimentary ride to the 107th or 108th floors on the weekends in January.
To get in on the deal, Nevada residents can present a valid state ID to Stratosphere Ticketing located at casino level near Roxy's Diner. The ticket has a value of up to $18.
The Stratosphere also said admission is free for children who are accompanied by an adult.
The hotel said the pass to the top doesn't include the thrill rides, including X-Scream, Insanity, Big Shot and SkyJump Las Vegas, available at the top. The Stratosphere, though, is also offering locals discounts for the rides.
The tower is open Sunday through Thursday from 10 a.m. to 1 a.m. and Friday and Saturday from 10 a.m. to 2 a.m.
