Put a Little Zip in Your Vegas Trip

What could be better than careening a half mile from mountain top to mountain top at 60 mph suspended only from a metal cable? Add some adrenaline to your Las Vegas vacation with these three zip line attractions.

FlightLinez Bootleg Canyon

“But VegasDaze, I’m a hardcore zip liner! Where can I find the ultimate zip line experience in Las Vegas?” We’re glad you asked! FlightLinez Bootleg Canyon is located only 25 miles from the Las Vegas Strip and only 10 minutes north of the Hoover Dam. Riders can zip down four separate lines, zig-zagging across scenic Bootleg Canyon at 3,800 feet above sea level. The first run, one of the shorter of the four, travels 1,852 feet at a 17 percent grade and reaches speeds of 60 mph. Not for the faint of heart. Riders can even elect to fly at night!


At about 2 cents per foot, SlotZilla in Downtown Las Vegas is practically a steal. Riders of the upper “Zoomline” fly super hero-style 1,750 feet down the Fremont Street Experience pedestrian promenade. The line runs just below the Viva Vision Light Show canopy and 114 feet above the crowds, passing world famous casinos such as Golden Nugget, Binion’s Gambling Hall, Four Queens and The D. Be sure to time your ride to coincide with the light show, which begins at the top of every hour starting at dusk. There are also some pretty snazzy t-shirts for sale at the SlotZilla ticket office.

VooDoo ZipLine

If flying through the city with nothing between the asphalt and your belly but a nylon harness is not your style, check out the VooDoo ZipLine at Rio. The unique take on zip lining features two-person, chair lift-style seating. It carries passengers 800 feet from the top of the 50-story Masquerade Tower to the casino’s Ipanema Tower and back again. At only 33 mph, it’s geared more toward sightseers than thrill seekers. Passengers are afforded stunning 360-degree views of the Strip and surrounding Las Vegas Valley. Rio even offers a free shuttle service to guests of Strip hotels!
