Confirmed: Linq Promenade to Get Zipline Attraction

As we exclusively reported nearly two months before the rest of the world, Caesars Entertainment has confirmed the Linq promenade will be getting a new zipline attraction, Fly Linq.

We’ve got all the skinny about Fly Linq, the first and only ziplines on the Las Vegas Strip.

Fly Linq will accommodate 10 riders at a time, side-by-side.

Like downtown’s SlotZilla zipline (where we work in digital marketing as our day job), riders will have the option to fly seated or “Superman-style” (prone).

Prone is a lot more fun, so expect a price bump, but it’s totally worth it.

Here’s a look at Fly Linq! We’d like your sister to Linq with our fly, if you get our drift.

Riders will take off from a 122-foot-tall tower, traveling 1,080 feet eastward from near the Linq hotel toward the High Roller Ferris wheel.

Ride speeds are expected to reach 35 miles per hour.

The attraction will cost $20 million to build and construction will begin in spring 2018. The attraction will open in late 2018.

Recently, casinos have tried to increase profits by making the most of “idle” space. The air above a pedestrian mall certainly qualifies.

Prices for the ziplines haven’t been set, but expect something in the $40-50 range. The VooDoo Zipline at Rio is about $30.

Judging by the success of SlotZilla, Fly Linq is likely to make a bundle from thrill-seeking Las Vegas visitors.

Fly Linq will also serve as a customer delivery device for the under-performing High Roller, and combo deals that include rides on the world’s tallest observation wheel are a sure bet.

Ziplines will add a lively element to the Linq promenade which has an already-appealing mix of restaurants and bars.

Emphasis on bars.

    The Linq is a nice area for this and I hope they have a discount for seasoned citizens! Will fly it as soon as they open.

    Hopefully somebody will create a big air cannon, shoot your drunk ass out from MGM right into the Bellagio Fountains. People would pay not only to do that but to watch!

    The kids love their zip lines so the only surprise in the news you leaked two months ago is that it took so long for somebody on the strip to find a way to sell such an experience. I know people have gone downtown with the zip line being one of the reasons. I suspect zip line revenue downtown will drop a bit when Linq opens its 10-line offering.

      “the news you leaked two months ago”

      At first glance, I thought you were referring to the incident where the guy peed over the crowd while riding the zip line downtown.

    The renderings look like this will drastically impede foot traffic trying to reach the promenade. Like another zip line I know. And yes, I realize the additional revenue will more than outweigh the annoyed old farts like me.

    Call it the Gordon Ramsey Zip experience or such and it’ll be a hit.

    This will no doubt do very well; I’m really impressed with what they’ve done with Linq promenade. I’m not sure yet if I will actually part with my $$’s to ride this, but it does bring a fun energy to the area.
