Zipline attractions seem to be popping up all over Las Vegas. There are now options in both major tourist hubs, the Strip and Fremont Street, in addition to Rio’s off-strip offering. We thought it would be helpful to lay out your options in one central place so you can compare what zipline options are available before committing.

You’ll be flying 12 stories above the promenade below and have the option of sitting, flying backwards, or going in a superhero position (laying on your stomach).

What are people saying about FlyLINQ?
Reviews have been mostly positive as the attraction boasts 4.5/5 stars on TripAdvisor. Common positive review themes point out that there are rarely lines or a long wait and that the ride itself is pretty thrilling albeit quick. Negative reviews center around how short the ride is (35-45 seconds) and that the stop is pretty sudden at the end.
Slotzilla – Fremont Street Experience
While FlyLINQ sends riders soaring over a newer incarnation of Las Vegas, Slotzilla sends you flying down the vintage neon canyon that is the Fremont Street Experience. The attraction offers 2 distinct riding experiences. The first is a 2 story high, 2 block long rip in a sitting position which is referred to as the Zipline. The higher Zoomline sends you flying superhero style on your stomach for 5 blocks at a height of 11 stories.
How much does Slotzilla cost?
Lower/Shorter Zipline: $29 for all dates and times plus a $3.95 processing fee.
Upper Zoomline: $49 for all dates and times plus a $3.95 processing fee.
In addition to the cost of the ride, a digital photo can be purchased for $10 per person, or a photo plus GoPro video for $25. Tickets can be purchased in advance here. If you have a specific time you wish to ride, purchasing in advance is highly recommended.
What are people saying about the Slotzilla Zipline?
The 4.5 / 5 stars Slotzilla has earned on TripAdvisor confirm that riders are consistently satisfied with what they are getting for their money. Positive review themes point out the scenery is fantastic, the ride is thrilling and there tends to be a minimal wait. Most negative reviews focused on poor weather and the cost of commemorative photos at the end of the ride. If you have to choose one zipline in Vegas, our opinion is that Slotzilla tops the competition by a wide margin.
RioZipline at Rio
RioZipline at Rio sends riders flying at speeds up to 33 mph across the 800-foot chasm between the resort’s Masquerade and Ipanema Towers. The ride starts from the 50th floor of the Masquerade Tower, a dizzying 500 feet from the ground. After you arrive at the end of the zipline, you’ll be pulled back to where you started, extending your ride time.
RioZipline is by far the highest from the ground of your 3 options and instead of being harnessed in, riders are buckled into a chairlift like seat. In fact, RioZipline boasts that they are the highest and fastest in all of Vegas. The zipline is open Monday – Thursday from 3 pm – 11 pm, and Friday – Sunday from 11 am – midnight.
Note: Due to the public health emergency, RioZipline is currently closed until further notice.
How much is the RioZipline?
The standard price is $27.49, however, a locals discount of 20% is available with a valid NV ID. Caesars Rewards members who have earned either Diamond or Seven Stars status will receive a 10% discount.
RioZipline patrons receive free entry to the Voodoo Rooftop Nightclub & Lounge. If you want a second go at the zipline, a re-ride ticket can be purchased for just $17.49 per person.
What are people saying about the RioZipline?
Of the 3, VooDoo scored lowest on the TripAdvisor rating scale tallying a still-solid 4 / 5 Stars. Positive review themes point out that the height of the attraction is thrilling and suggest the ride is a strong value at it’s price point. Riders also enjoyed the views before and after their ride from the Voodoo lounge atop the Rio. Some riders had safety concerns as there is only a seat belt holding you in a chairlift type apparatus, however, we feel comfortable assuming the engineers and ride designers have the safety aspect covered.
