FlyLinq sends riders soaring over the bars, restaurants, and shops that make up the Linq Promenade towards 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 backward, or going in a superhero position (laying on your stomach).

The FlyLinq Zipline is currently open Thursday – Monday from 2 pm – 10 pm, and is closed on Tuesday and Wednesday.

How much does FlyLINQ cost?

Anytime tickets purchased directly with FlyLinq online start at $35 and offer you the flexibility to choose your ride time.

What are people saying about FlyLINQ?

Reviews are mostly positive and the zipline attraction boasts 4/5 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-blocks 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: $39 for all dates and times plus a $3.95 processing fee.

Upper Zoomline: $59 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 to Slotzilla 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 ziplines. Instead of being harnessed in, riders are buckled into a chairlift-like seat. The zipline is open daily from 11 am – 11 pm.

How much is the RioZipline?

The standard price is $34, 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.

Tickets to RioZipline can be purchased here.

RioZipline patrons also receive free entry to the Voodoo Rooftop Nightclub & Lounge.

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 its 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 evaluating ziplines in Las Vegas, it’s tough to go wrong as all 3 options offer distinct benefits and scenery choices.

Whether you prefer the Strip, Fremont Street, or 500 feet in the air at Rio, there’s almost certainly an option that will appeal to all adrenaline junkies.
