Headed to Vegas? Lucky for you, the Strip’s most exciting Vegas attractions are now open: FLY LINQ at The LINQ Promenade and The Eiffel Tower Viewing Deck at Paris Las Vegas. Both are daring in the sense you must embrace heights (as we chant, “Do it! Do it!”). But let’s see which one of these Vegas attractions is right for you. Take a ride on the wild side and fly high in the sky.

A Dashing, Debonair Evening: The Eiffel Tower Viewing Deck

You crave adventure and spontaneity, and we’re guessing romance sits on the top of that list. The Eiffel Tower Viewing Deck is your Paris in Vegas. Standing just over 540 feet, the replica is half the actual height of the Eiffel Tower in France. It’s also the world’s tallest reproduction of the original.

The Eiffel Tower Viewing Deck features 360-degree city views, so you’re guaranteed to catch gorgeous sights of the Strip. The friendly, on-hand Eiffel Tower ambassadors are there to point out various landmarks and share fun Vegas facts.

Pro tip: We absolutely love how it looks during sunset, which is around 7 p.m. to 8 p.m. in the summer. You’ll witness bright oranges, pinks and purple colors splashed across the sky. There’s nothing else like it.

The oohs and ahhs continue into the evening. The Eiffel Tower at Paris Las Vegas also has a new, free light show, taking place every half hour from dusk to midnight nightly. The show features synchronized and choreographed twinkling and colored lights to make your viewing experience larger than life.

Tickets for the Eiffel Tower Viewing Deck start at $18 per person. Take your beau (or your beautiful self) for a fun weekend trip. The Eiffel Tower Viewing Deck is open Friday through Sunday, 4 p.m. to midnight.

Up, Up And Away We Go: FLY LINQ Zipline At The LINQ Promenade

You crave for a daring adventure. In fact, you always have. You were the one who ran up first on top of the jungle gym during recess. You got scolded as a kid for jumping from couch to couch and scared the heck out of your parents. Even if you weren’t this kid, now’s the time to be.

Developed by the team behind the High Roller (the world’s tallest observation wheel), FLY LINQ Zipline is the Strip’s only zipline ride. It features 10 side-by-side zip lines, which simultaneously launches its riders. Once you step off the elevator onto the 114-foot-tall launch tower, you’ll be geared up and ready for takeoff in minutes.

Breeze through the sky,1,121 feet along the LINQ Promenade. Don’t forget to keep your eyes open to admire the views below. The FLY LINQ is worth every single second. You can fly in a seated position and choose to fly forward or backward.

Tickets for FLY LINQ Zipline start at $21 per person. The FLY LINQ Zipline is open daily from 4 p.m to midnight.

You can also go on the High Roller wheel after your ride. (We’re sure you’ll be tempted with your up-close views of it upon your FLY LINQ landing!) Located only steps away from the FLY LINQ’s endpoint, the 550-foot wheel has unique, eye-catching views of the Strip and its surrounding area. Each ride is 30 minutes long and starts at $20.50 per person ($7.50 for children ages 7-17). The High Roller is open from 4 p.m. to midnight on weekdays and noon to midnight on Saturday and Sunday.

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 hitting up all the city's vegan spots, having staycations and catching shows by my favorite musical acts. Since I've ditched rainy Seattle 20+ years ago, I graduated from UNLV and covered Las Vegas hotel and entertainment articles for Vegas.com, the LA Times, Frommer's and our very own Total Vegas Blog. When I'm not writing, you'll find me hanging with my two girls, along with our shih-tzu and tiger cat.
