There’s a new way to get a thrill in Las Vegas.
A brand new attraction at the LINQ Promenade called FLY LINQ is the very first (and only) zip line on the Vegas strip. The ride officially opened on Jan. 1 with a special superheroes-themed display.
Ten fliers in FLY LINQ-branded superhero costumes opened up the new, $20-million attraction by soaring above The LINQ Promenade across the strip from Caesars Palace with the fanfare of colorful confetti cannons.
FLY LINQ is the newest attraction from High Roller, the world’s tallest observation wheel. It features 10 side-by-side zip lines, which can be engaged simultaneously. So, it looks like your next bachelor or bachelorette party will be a bit more extreme.
Fliers launch from a 114-foot tower (about 14 stories) to another 54-foot landing tower (about five stories) across the promenade, about 1,121 feet away. Guests may fly either seated or in a “superhero” position. Think: Superman on his way to his Fortress of Solitude. Guests who want to soar in the clouds (or just pretend they’re part of the Justice League) must weigh a minimum of 60 pounds.
Each ride takes approximately 35 to 45 seconds as guests soar at an average speed of 35 miles per hour.
The zip line will be open daily, beginning at 11:30 a.m. Ticket prices vary depending on what time of day you wish to fly. During the day, seated passengers pay $25, while “superhero” passengers pay $35. At night, ticket prices go up slightly to $30 and $40 depending on flight position.
