Picture yourself 12 stores high above the Las Vegas Strip, attached to a wire, soaring down the length of the Linq Promenade at 35 miles per hour.
It’s the Fly Linq zipline, the first zipline located on the Las Vegas Strip.
Opened in November 2018, the Fly Linq Zipline is located steps from the Strip – in-between the Flamingo and Linq Casino/Hotels. The ride has you zipping directly over lots of people enjoying the busy Linq Promenade dining and shopping area. In other words, don’t do this when you are TOO hung over.
The launch point is atop a 114 foot tower at the base of the Linq Promenade, right near the Strip sidewalk. This vantage point itself offers great views of the Strip.
From there you’ll fly towards the High Roller Observation Wheel at speeds around 35 miles per hour.
How long is the Linq Zipline?
The Fly Linq has ten different ziplines, each 1,121 feet long.
According to Caesars, ten riders can be launched all at once.
Fly Linq Zipline Prices
Below are mobile ticketing prices after all fees. The Linq charges an additional $6 if you want to do will-call tickets.
This is for one single ticket purchase. Two tickets to the FlyLinq would cost a total of $53 ($26.50 each).
Alternatively, authorized ticket seller Vegas.com has discounted ride tickets here:
(I may may receive a commission if tickets are purchase through this).
You can also purchase tickets in person at the Linq, at their kiosks. These tickets are good for anytime the FlyLinq is open. Previously one would have to choose a time to ride, and prices were based on the time of day.
Seated Style and SuperHero Style
Please note, that only the seated style of riding is currently offered.
Before the Covid shutdown, there were two styles of riding, (a) sitting while holding the bar above you, or (b) “Superhero” style option, in which you lay down flat, arms extended like Superman. The Superman style was $10 higher.
In April of 2019, a new option was added, allowing seated riders to ride backwards. The price for this is the same as riding face-forward.
When Superman style riding returns, we’ll update this article.
Fly Linq Zipline Hours
Pre-Covid, the ride was open seven days a week, until 1 AM, with the first rides beginning in the morning. We expect these hours to return, and again, when that happens, we’ll update this article accordingly.
Flying the FlyLinq
You’ll enter an elevator inside the Linq Hotel & Casino, just steps away from the Linq Promenade on the Strip end of the resort. You’ll take this to the first platform.
Before riding the Fly Linq, you’ll be weighed, get instructions, be fitted with your harness, and of course, sign waivers.
From there, you’ll walk up stairs, where the ride starts at the top of tower on the Strip and ends on an elevated platform at the base of the High Roller. There, you can pose in front of the green screen after which you can purchase very expensive photos taken by the Linq’s professional photographer.

Other Notes about the Las Vegas Fly Linq
* The actually flight time is typically between 35 and 45 seconds.
* While you start out at 114 feet, the landing pad at the base of the High Roller is only 54 feet.
* While downtown Las Vegas has had its popular Slotzilla Zipline on Fremont Street for a few years now, the Fly Linq represents the first zip line on the Las Vegas Strip.
* The Fly Linq is a little longer than Slotzilla. It cost $20 million dollars to build.
* There are a total of three zip lines in Las Vegas. Caesar Entertainment hotels have two of them. Besides the Linq, there is another zipline in Las Vegas. There is also high aerial ride at the Rio All Suites Hotel & Casino just off of the Strip.
* The zipline was built by a company called, “Xventure.” According to a Caesars press release, Xventure “specializes in high-capacity adventure rides situated in prime urban locations.”
* Driving to the Fly Linq? Current parking rates and a parking map can be found here: Linq Promenade Parking Rates.
* From its grand opening until March of 2019, the ride was open until 2 AM on weekends. However officials changed the closing hours to 1 AM, shortly after opening.
Overall, the FlyLinq is one of those “only on vacation” experiences that offers a quick, but thrilling diversion. And if you’re like me, where it may only take me a few minutes to lose $50 at a Wheel of Fortune machine (without getting anything back), the Fly Linq’s ticket price may be worth it – just for the memories alone.
