Last updated: July 17, 2018 at 2:33 pm. Posted by in Things to Do in Las Vegas. 2 Comments on LINQing To The Future: What’s New At The LINQ Hotel & Casino And Promenade.

A massive gummy bear chandelier, a new zip line (center Strip!) and virtual wrestling monkeys are just a few of the features coming to The LINQ Promenade in the next few months. And trust us — we have our calendars marked.

In addition to these upcoming outlets at The LINQ Promenade, there are other fun spots to enjoy right now at both the promenade and the adjacent LINQ Hotel & Casino. 

Pack your bags and get ready for an action-packed trip to Vegas.

What’s New at The LINQ Hotel Las Vegas and Promenade

Corner Kitchen 

If you’re looking for a quick bite, Corner Kitchen at The LINQ Hotel & Casino is perfect for that. Enjoy a full menu of sandwiches, pizza and the most exciting part, a bakery with gourmet-style mini donuts made fresh to order. Flavors include toffee crunch, raspberry shortcake, s’mores and other dreamy creations.

You can grab breakfast on the go or lunch favorites like burgers and chicken strips. Order a burger High Roller style: two patties smothered in chili and cheese.  If you got a sweet tooth craving, The poutine comes with maple iced donuts, candied bacon, vanilla soft serve topped with Fruity Pebbles. Yum!

You will be sure to work up an appetite at Influence - The Pool at The Linq Hotel head to the Taco Spot.

The Taco Spot at Influence Pool

Let’s taco bout this real quick: There’s never, ever, a bad time for tacos. And with all the partying and swimming you’ll be doing at the lively 21-and-older Influence – The Pool, you’re sure to work up a good appetite. That’s where The Taco Spot comes in handy. The pool eatery offers fresh soft and hard-shell tacos; tostadas; protein rice bowls, chips and guacamole and boneless Latin-inspired chicken wings. Wash your food down with one of six Mexican draught beer options, margaritas or a drink from the Michelada menu.

Maybe you forgot to pack socks and underwear. Head to Socks & Bottoms and pick out a couple of pairs.

Boxers or briefs? Matching or not? You decide. Photo courtesy of Socks & Bottoms.

Socks & Bottoms

Let’s face it – socks and underwear are the most annoying (but still the most essential) things to pack. You made all this room for your best outfits and shoes. And just when you thought you were done — damn it! The forgotten unmentionables are still lurking in your drawer.

We say don’t even bother packing them. Hit up The LINQ Promenade’s recently-opened Socks & Bottoms, which has everything from matching sock collections for the entire fam-bam or even matching undies for couples.

If you’re not down for being matchy-matchy, you can still shop from popular and unique brands, including Stance.

The Summer BBQ Bar Cabin On The High Roller 

Get ready to get your grub on in the air. In conjunction with The LINQ Promenade’s Virgil’s Real BBQ, you can enjoy all your down home favorites in an air-conditioned High Roller Observation Wheel cabin. The menu includes signature Texas beef brisket, Memphis-style pork ribs Carolina sliders, Texas beef brisket melts and cornbread. Your barbecue experience also includes an open bar and private bartender. You can also bring your own music. Add your favorite country music or hey, even hip-hop or EDM if you wanted – it’s your call. Price is $1,400 for 15 people and available daily from noon to 7 p.m.

Back by popular demand, these guests are eating chocolates inside the High Roller.

Chocolate Tasting On The High Roller

Back by popular demand, the High Roller’s in-cabin chocolate tasting experience makes a sweet comeback. Enjoy signature bites from Ethel M Chocolates. After focusing on their aroma, taste and texture, you’ll be a chocolate connoisseur in no time. The chocolate tasting is $45 (from ages 7 to adult) and available every Thursday from 5 – 8 p.m.

Have a sweet-tooth? I Love Suger is coming to the LINQ Hotel Las Vegas Promenade

I Love Sugar

Get ready to fulfill your sweet tooth on multiple levels. Opening spring 2019, I Love Sugar’s 14,000-square-foot space is the ultimate candy wonderland at The LINQ Promenade. It’ll have everything from its glorious gummy bear chandelier (30,000 gummies, to be exact), a massive candy shop and even an adults-only candy-infused cocktail bar. Now the only question is, who will watch your kiddos while you sip and enjoy these tasty drinks?

Coming soon to the LINQ Hotel Las Vegas Promenade - Fly LINQ Zipline

FLY LINQ Zipline

Look up in the sky, it’s a bird, it’s a… wait — it’s… you!

Opening late 2018, you can fly center-Strip like never before. Fly LINQ features 10 side-by-side zip lines that whisks you 35 miles per hour (and a whopping 1,080 feet above the ground) across The LINQ Promenade toward the 550-foot-tall High Roller Observation Wheel. You can sit traditional style or be brave and fly like Superman. And even if you decide to chicken out, the $20 million project will still be fun to watch from below.

Kind Heaven

None of us really know what the three-story Kind Heaven is all about yet, but maybe that’s the whole point. What we can tell you is Kind Heaven will have virtual wrestling monkeys, street food vendors and live music. Now if there will be Hello Kitty, Pochacco and other Sanrio character meet-and-greet sessions (which would be awesome) or “Initial D” RC car drift racing, that’s still up in the air. It’s safe to say the $100 million project at The LINQ Promenade will be a one-of-a-kind, Asian-inspired experience.

More to enjoy at The LINQ Promenade

Virtual Reality Adventures 

VR Adventures at The LINQ Promenade started as a temporary installment, but now it’s here to stay. You’re not only stepping into a three-dimensional world, you’re incorporating hand movement, walking, sidestepping and jumping – each of which makes your experience more real. Now you can enjoy a VRoller Coaster and thrilling adventures like white water rafting.

Welcome to Las Vegas gift shop 

The popular Welcome to Las Vegas Gift Shop at The LINQ Promenade moved from its last location (which will now be I Love Sugar) and still offers the best souvenir items like T-shirts, hats and Vegas Golden Knights memorabilia. You’ll start off shopping for others, but if you’re like us, you’re going to walk out with goodies for yourself too. The new location is located between Goorin Bros. and Virgil’s Real BBQ.

Make sure you experience all the things to do in Las Vegas at all our properties. Our Las Vegas hotels are packed with the hottest pools, nightclubs and dayclubs, shopping, spas and salons.

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.
