What better way to take in the Las Vegas Strip’s kaleidoscopic beauty than from the air? Adrenaline junkies: Get ready for your next road trip, because the Strip’s first permanent zipline experience is ready to launch.
Starting November 9, the FLY LINQ Zipline promises to rocket as many as 10 brave participants at a time over LINQ Hotel & Casino Promenade, the hotel’s open-air shopping stretch. Before you can shoot through the air 12 stories above ground, however, you’ll embark from a tower that’s 114 feet tall. It’s not exactly ideal for those who fear heights, but it seems like a rush for thrill seekers.
There are two ways to ride: seated and upright, or “superhero,” where you’re strapped into your harness lying down, facing the ground. (Um, no thank you.) And yes, there are two similar ziplines nearby—SlotZilla’s Zipline and Zoomline, which also allow you to sit or fly “superhero-style,” respectively—though both are located in Downtown Las Vegas, a few miles from the actual Strip.
At LINQ, the attraction will run all day and night, meaning one can, theoretically, stumble out of the casino as late as 2:30am and make a spur-of-the-moment decision to ride. Worse choices have been made in Vegas, we’re sure.
Just look at how much fun they’re having.
Tickets for riding in the “superhero” position run $10 more than the seated option, and because the LINQ knows the Strip’s twinkling lights are possibly the biggest draw of it all, there’s a price increase for all evening rides.
Tickets for the FLY LINQ Zipline are already on sale, and run $25 per seated and $35 per “superhero” in the daytime, and $30 per seated and $40 per “superhero” at night; tickets purchased online and in advance can net you some discounts, which means a little planning can save you on the Strip—though in Vegas, impulse is usually half the fun.
The LINQ Hotel & Casino’s new zipline experience launches November 9 at 3535 S Las Vegas Blvd.
