Weeee!

That’s what you’ll be saying (or us, anyway!) when you zoom down Fly LINQ, the 12-story-high zipline coming to the LINQ Promenade. This will be the first zipline on the Las Vegas Strip.

The zipline starts just off Las Vegas Boulevard (at the start of LINQ Promenade), where you’ll board an elevator up to the 122-foot tall launch tower. After your quick safety orientation, up to 10 riders at a time will zip eastward (toward the 550-foot-tall High Roller observation wheel). Depending on your riding style you can zoom 1,080 feet above the promenade in a seated position or if you’re daring, in total Superman fashion. Anyone who goes this way is a hero in our book.

If this will be your first time riding a zipline, you’re doing it right: Fly LINQ going to offer one helluva view. At 35 miles per hour, you’ll pass by bright and vibrant signage (Brooklyn Bowl, Sprinkles and O’Sheas, to name a few) and stop at the base of the High Roller. With all the gorgeous and colorful lights, nighttime is the way to go. After your sky-high adventure, you’ll have a chance to purchase a souvenir photo (individually or as a group) of your ride.

“Fly LINQ will further establish The LINQ Promenade as a must-visit destination, particularly for distinctive Las Vegas entertainment experiences,” said Bob Morse, president of hospitality for Caesars Entertainment. “This new experience will join The LINQ Promenade’s growing number of thrilling and memorable entertainment, dining and retail options.”

Zip Line or zip-line you'll still be having fun at The LINQ Promenade on Fly LINQ.

Excited? We sure are. The $20 million project, being developed in conjunction with Xventure LV, LLC, starts construction in the spring of 2018 will be ready in late 2018 but you can get an early start to hype yourself up: Not too far from the Strip, the VooDoo Zipline is available at Rio All-Suite Hotel & Casino.

Ticket prices are still in the works, but we’ll keep you posted as the dates get closer.

About The Author

I live for a crazy Vegas adventure, but not in ways you may think. Sure, our nightlife scene is all fun and dandy, but I love discovering all of the city’s vegan options, relaxing in hotel rooms and seeing the best concerts – no matter how big or small the crowd may be. Since I’ve ditched the rain in Seattle two decades ago, I graduated from UNLV and covered Las Vegas entertainment articles for Vegas.com, the LA Times and our very own Total Vegas Blog. When I’m not writing, you’ll find me spending time with my husband, toddler and two pets.
