Location: The LINQ Resort & Casino

Summary: Fly LINQ Zipline Las Vegas is a must-do for any thrill seeker visiting the city. The ride begins 12 stories high and zips riders across the length of The LINQ Promenade at speeds up to 35 MPH. The ride only lasts 30-45 seconds, but it’s sure to be a thrilling experience.

Pros

  • On The Strip: Fly LINQ is the only zipline on the Las Vegas Strip. Located at The LINQ Promenade, the zipline is in the heart of the action and easy to get to regardless of where you’re staying.
  • Adrenaline Rush: You will fly through the air 12-stories above ground at speeds of up to 35 miles per hour.

Cons

  • It’s Expensive: Tickets to Fly LINQ are expensive! It’s $40 per person to ride the zipline and it often sells out.

The Fly LINQ Zipline on The LINQ Promenade is the only zipline on the Las Vegas Strip.

The exhilarating ride is a must-do for any thrill-seekers visiting Las Vegas. Unleash your adrenaline and soar up to 35 mph through the Las Vegas skyline.

Fly LINQ starts 12 stories above The Strip and zips riders over 1,100 feet across the length of The LINQ Promenade, descending about seven stories to the base of the High Roller.

Fly LINQ can have up to ten riders side-by-side at a time. Plenty of space for you and all your friends.

There are two ways to ride Fly LINQ. You can ride seated for an electrifying experience, or you can ride the adrenaline-pumping Superhero style where you fly through the sky like Superman.

The ride lasts about 35-45 seconds, depending on the rider’s weight and style of the ride.

Soaring Through The LINQ Promenade

As you glide through the air above The LINQ Promenade you’ll fly past Chayo Mexican Kitchen & Tequila Bar and O’Sheas on your left-hand side. Chayo is a popular restaurant by day and party nightclub-like atmosphere by night. O’Sheas is a popular Irish-themed casino.

As your ride down the zipline continues you’ll pass Brooklyn Bowl. An epic bowling alley and rock concert venue that hosts touring bands year-round.

Finally, you’ll end at the base of the High Roller, the second tallest observation wheel in the world (and tallest in the USA).

My Conclusion

For me, Fly LINQ is overpriced at $40 per person. The ride is very short and I would rather spend a little more money and buy a Happy Half Hour ticket on the High Roller. The Happy Half Hour includes an open bar with unlimited cocktails during the duration of the ride.

If you are dying to go on a zipline, Fly LINQ will suit you well. The views are nice, it’s safe and well-organized. But if you’re looking for value, there are better options in Las Vegas.

Fly LINQ vs. Slotzilla

There are two main ziplines everyone wants compared. Fly LINQ and Slotzilla. As described above, Fly LINQ is on The Strip at The LINQ Promenade. Slotzilla is downtown on Fremont Street.

If you’ve never been to the Fremont Street Experience and you want to ride a zipline, head downtown at night for an unforgettable experience as you soar through the glow of the LED canopy and neon lights of old Vegas.

Fremont Street Experience Zipline Slotzilla

Top Features:

  • $39-$59 Tickets
  • Two Ride Options
  • Downtown Las Vegas

Slotzilla is a zip line that launches riders from a 12-story slot machine-themed platform to fly down Fremont Street. The Superhero Zoom line is similar to Fly LINQ’s Superman-style ride where you fly lying down on your stomach. The other option is to fly seated.

Slotzilla has two zipline options. A short ride that’s $39 and an incredible long version that’s $59. In my opinion, it is worth the extra money. The views are better and it’s more fun to fly over a crowded street full of people below you.
