A zipline is both a fantastic adrenaline rush and a great opportunity to enjoy the sights from above.
Las Vegas is of course known for getting the heart pounding AND for its stunning lights, so it should come as no surprise that it has its fair selection of ziplines to choose from.
Keep reading as we highlight the 4 different Ziplines in Vegas.
Top 4 Ziplines in Vegas for 2021
1. Fly Linq Zipline on the Vegas Strip
The Fly Linq Zipline is an extremely fun rush and a fun attraction to visit if you are visiting the Strip.
The downside to this is that the wait times are still very long, often over an hour.
Riders are launched from 114 feet from the top of the tower, to travel 1,121 feet at speeds of up to 35MPH.
It’s a short but intense adrenaline rush and you’ll have an ‘action shot’ snapped right at the end to take home as a keepsake.
This zip line will take you from the promenade toward the High Roller observation wheel, providing some great views.
Prices: $30 via discount (Enter code: FLAFF5)
2. Rio Zip line at Rio – Now Open
The Rio Zipline runs between two Rio buildings. This means that it is suspended high above Vegas, and it’s fantastic looking down on everything as you shoot through the sky. If you go at night, you’ll get to enjoy all the lights and some amazing views, though during the day it can be fun to watch the people in the pools below.
To get on, you’ll need to locate the Rio Hotel and ascend to the 52nd floor – so it is definitely high up and not one for the faint of heart! In fact, the seat is also very small, which really adds to the sense of danger (in a good way!).
Of course, as with all these things, the Rio Zipline is actually very safe, thanks to a seatbelt that will fasten you in place.
Tickets normally cost $32 each (Save 75% on Tickets). There are also discounts for locals, and once you get to the bottom, you’ll often be given money off your next ride.
You need to be at least 4 feet tall to ride, and the weight limit is 300lbs.
3. Slotzilla Zip Line in Downtown Las Vegas
SlotZilla is another incredibly exciting zipline that is only for the brave. This one can be found a little beyond the strip at the older part of Vegas, on Fremont street, opposite White Castle.
You’ll actually find two different rides here. The zipline will go halfway down the Fremont Street Experience, though you can also take the Zoomline which goes further.
Specifically, the Zoomline will take off from over 10 stories up in the air (114 feet) and will travel a total of 1,750 feet. The Zipline (the lower one) starts from 7 stories up.
The Zoomline will set you back $45, while the Zipline is just $29.
The biggest downside to this ride is that the queues can get extremely long, with some people even waiting over an hour.
4. Flightlinez Bootleg Canyon – Temp Closed
Flightlinez Bootleg Canyon is currently closed due to COVID.
Flightlinez Bootleg Canyon is a little more expensive than the other options on this list. You’ll pay $159 as a tourist, while locals will be able to get it for $135 (this is also available for guests that drive themselves to the Boulder City office).
That should tell you something about this experience, it is a step up from the others on the list. Rather than being an attraction that is added on to a building, this is a day-out for those that really want an exciting adventure.
The site has four separate ziplines that cover 1.5 miles collectively across the Mojave Desert in Boulder City, 30 miles from the Las Vegas Strip. You’ll be able to enjoy some incredible views while rushing at high speeds.
Tours typically last around 2.5 to 3 hours. The maximum weight limit is 250lbs.
