Caesars Entertainment, the owner of the LINQ Promenade, has announced the addition of Fly LINQ, the first zipline on the Las Vegas Strip. Developed by the team behind the High Roller, the world’s tallest observation wheel, the approximately $20 million Fly LINQ will have 10 side-by-side zip lines, capable of simultaneously launching all riders.
The experience will be constructed on The LINQ Promenade, the open-air shopping, dining and entertainment district at the heart of the Las Vegas Strip. Construction is expected to begin in the spring of next year.
Guests will begin their ride experience by taking an elevator designed to provide open strip views from the Vortex at The LINQ Hotel & Casino to the top of the 122-foot-tall launch tower. After the ascent to the top of the tower, it is planned that guests will arrive on the launch deck, where queuing and gear-fitting will take place. Riders can choose to ride in either a “superman” or seated position.
From the launch tower, the ride continues eastward, traveling 1,080 feet above The LINQ Promenade. Riders disembark near the base of the High Roller. Plus, guests will be able to purchase professional photos—either individually or as a group— of themselves mid-air during the ride.
Fly LINQ is expected to have two automated gear retrieval lines that will keep queues moving quickly by swiftly returning gear back to the launch tower. Additionally, it will feature a custom-built automated ride system and technology developed by global leaders in zipline construction.
