Thrill-seekers may improve their Vegas holiday by taking a ride on one of Sin City’s three zip line attractions, two of which are now operational after the Covid outage.
To be more precise, there are two zip lines and one zip ride, the differences between which will be discussed in further detail below.
Two of three zip lines are placed on the Strip and above Fremont Street in downtown Las Vegas.
Instead of zipping through the air above a forest canopy or taking in a serene view of the countryside from the air, as you would expect at a holiday spot, these zip lines are all in Las Vegas. As you fly above Sin City’s chaotic streets, the city’s brilliant lights and pulsating noises will be all around you.
A tranquil zipline may be found in the desert outside Las Vegas (more on that below). If you click on any of the links in this article, we may earn a commission.
Zipline The gambling mecca of Las Vegas Strip
The Linq Hotel & Casino, which is immediately on the Strip, has a zipline ride, and the Rio All-Suites Hotel and Casino, which is about a mile away, has a zipline ride around the Las Vegas Strip. The Rio location, on the other hand, is now shut.
1.) Zipline at Fly Linq
At the Linq Hotel & Casino across from Caesars Palace, you’ll find the newest zip line in Vegas.
Before the stoppage, you could ride Superman-style, but now you can only ride in the sitting position.
Lifts take you to a 12-story tower above the Linq Promenade Stores, where you’re given safety instructions and propelled toward the High Roller Ferris Wheel.
Even though it doesn’t go down the Strip, you’ll be able to see several of the Strip’s casinos and hotels from the air.
As of this update, one-person tickets for the Fly Linq Zipline start at $47.50 (after fees), and two-person tickets start at $92 (after costs) when purchased online via Linq’s ticketing agency Ticketmaster. Ticketmaster has tickets on sale here: Tickets for FlyLinq.
FlyLinq tickets are periodically available at a discount on Vegas.com: Fly Linq Tickets at a discount.
The attraction is open from 2 pm until 10 pm (Tuesdays and Wednesdays are off days).
2) Rio Zipline Hours and Prices
A mile west of the Strip, the Rio All-Suites Hotel & Casino includes the Rio Zipline (previously known as the “Voodoo Zipline”), a fun way to see the Las Vegas skyline.
If you’re not acquainted, a zip ride is a two-person vehicle. Think of it as a little version of a chairlift at a ski resort.
The Rio ZipLine, in reality, has a top speed of almost 30 mph.
The 50-Foot Tower
The Masquerade Tower of the Rio hotel serves as the starting point for the 50-story thrill coaster. The Ipanema tower is 800 feet distant after flying above the resort’s pool area.
In contrast to the typical zipline, the Rio’s ride will take you back to your starting position by going backward instead of forwards.
Another advantage of a zip ride over a zipline is that riders may simply jump on and off without the need for a cumbersome harness to be worn. Seat-buckle-like straps are all you’ll need.
On the other hand, Ziplining is a one-on-one experience, but a zip ride allows you to share the excitement with a loved one, a friend, or even a professional escort (this is, after all, Las Vegas).
On the other hand, the thrill of hanging from wire hundreds of feet above the ground as you would on a typical zip line may be diminished because you are sitting in a chair.
There’s nothing but a seat belt between you and the hard earth, which is 500 feet below.
RioZipline.com is where you can get tickets for $34 each.
Up to six months from the date of purchase, they may be used whenever the business is open. The following hours apply to the Rio Zipline:
|7 days a week||11 AM – 11 PM|
You must be 48 inches tall or taller to ride, even a youngster. As a last note, the ride is only open to individuals over 21 from 7 pm till the attraction closes.
No GoPro cameras or other hand-held mobile phone recordings are permitted on the ride because they may fall and injure people below. One rider can weigh no more than 350 pounds, while two riders are allowed to weigh no more than 450 pounds.
3) Ziplining on Fremont Street
After the closure of Covid’s third zipline in Las Vegas, it is now open downtown.
It’s a regular zip line, but the journey is anything from usual. Its launch tower, nicknamed “Slotzilla,” is meant to evoke the image of a massive slot machine.
“Zip Zilla” and “Super Hero Zoom” are the names given to two different flight modes on the attraction, which takes you far over the casinos on Fremont Street in downtown Las Vegas.
Also, the famed Fremont Street Experience light display will be visible from your seat.
It’s a zipline experience you’ll never forget, thanks to the bright lights and neon of Fremont Street around you at all times.
Ticket rates at Slotzilla vary depending on the ride you choose. There is a pricing difference between sitting down and Zoomline (Superman style).
Slotzilla’s Cost of Play
|Super Hero style||$59|
Both prices are inclusive of the current service charge of $3.95 per ticket.
Scheduling for Slotzilla
Monday – Wednesday from 4:00 PM – 1:00 AM
Thursday – Sunday from Noon – 2:00 AM
Nearby Las Vegas Zip Lines
Notice: This zipline is still temporarily blocked as of this update.)
Boulder City is a sleepy little hamlet on the shores of Lake Mead, about 27 miles south of Sin City. Bootleg Canyon, a desert hiking and mountain biking location north of Boulder City is where you’ll discover the Flightlinez Zipline.
Unlike its Las Vegas zipline brethren, the Flightlinez is longer and more pricey. A mile and a half are the total distance traveled.
Flightlinez’s Boulder City shop provides transportation to the staging location, where a 15-minute trek will lead you to the launch point for this zipline ride, which is part of a 2-and-a-half-hour excursion.
After the trek, you’ll begin your ride about 4,000 feet above sea level at the summit of Red Mountain. After that, four separate zip lines will take you to the bottom. A whole half-mile bike is required to complete one of the parts.
Flightlinez will transport you back to their shop in Boulder City at the other end of the trail. Flightlinez Zipline’s webpage may be found here:
For daylight rides, adults should expect to pay $159 per person. Sunset and moonlight rides are also offered for a little higher price.
