VooDoo ZipLine

VooDoo ZipLine, a new zip ride strung up between two of Rio's towers, sends a pair of riders soaring 400 feet over the Strip at 33 mph. That's as thrilling a view as you can get -- assuming that your eyes are actually open.

The 70-second ride takes off from VooDoo Lounge, located atop Rio’s 50-story Masquerade Tower, and ends 800 feet away at the nearby Ipanema Tower. A motorized pulley system then pulls riders backwards for the return trip.

The zip line soars from noon until midnight, seven days a week.

The resort partnered with Stan Checketts, the creator of more than 200 amusement rides, including the Stratosphere’s Big Shot, to design the attraction.

The Rio, which sits one block west of Las Vegas Boulevard, features 2,522 all-suite hotel rooms, including 380 newly designed Samba suites.
