Las Vegas zipline attractions are among the most popular non-gaming activities in the city. With options in both major tourist hubs, the Strip and Fremont Street, and away from the Strip at Rio, there is almost always a zipline nearby. With multiple options for ziplining in Vegas, we thought it would be helpful to lay out your options.
Below, we’ll dive into the details of each Las Vegas zipline to ensure you have a good feel for the ride, cost, and hours of operation.
FlyLINQ Zipline On The Strip
The only zipline on the Strip, FlyLINQ can be found overhead the LINQ Promenade and sends riders flying from Las Vegas Blvd. over the shops and restaurants that make up the pedestrian walkway below toward the High Roller observation wheel at speeds of up to 35 MPH. The zipline is 1,121 feet long and 12-stories above the promenade below. Riders have the option of sitting, flying backwards, or going in a superhero position (laying on your stomach).
NOTE: Due to decreased demand caused by the public health crisis, FlyLinq is only operating Thursday – Monday from 2 pm – 10 pm daily. Tickets can currently be purchased for the date intended and used anytime during that day.
How much does FlyLINQ cost?
Weekdays Anytime: $26.75 (or $21.75 if booked online in advance).
Friday, Saturday, Sunday Anytime: $30 (or $25 if booked online in advance).
What are people saying about FlyLINQ?
Reviews are mostly positive and the zipline 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 Zipline On Fremont Street
While FlyLINQ sends riders soaring over a newer incarnation of Las Vegas, the Slotzilla zipline downtown sends you flying past the vintage casino facades that make up the Fremont Street Experience. The zipline 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 only one Las Vegas zipline it’s tough to top Slotzilla.
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.
At a height of over 500 feet, Rio’s ride ranks as the most elevated when compared to the other 2 Las Vegas zipline options. Instead of being harnessed in, riders are buckled into a chairlift like seat. 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 as the lowest-rated Las Vegas zipline based on its TripAdvisor rating, 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.
When looking for a Las Vegas zipline to ride, it’s tough to go wrong as all 3 options offer distinct benefits. With a variety of options that include flying over the Strip, down the neon canyon of Fremont Street, or a more elevated off-Strip option, there is likely a Vegas zipline for you. Enjoy your time ziplining in Vegas!
