NEW “FLIGHT OF FLIGHTS” EXPERIENCE FEATURING LAS VEGAS HELICOPTER FLIGHTS, ZIPLINING ON THE STRIP

AVAILABLE BEGINNING TODAY

 Papillon Grand Canyon Helicopters, FLY LINQ and The Book

at The LINQ Hotel & Casino Create New Spring Package

 

 

Beginning today for the first time, the “Flight of Flights” experience is now available; the package includes three experiences: Papillon Grand Canyon Helicopters’ Las Vegas Strip flight at sunset; FLY LINQ ziplining and a beer flight from The Book at The LINQ Hotel & Casino.

 

Beginning with a shuttle pick-up at The LINQ Hotel & Casino’s tour bus depot, guests are taken to the Papillon Grand Canyon Helicopters terminal at McCarran International Airport. From there, they are whisked away to fly over the Las Vegas Strip and Downtown Las Vegas at sunset. The tour provides dazzling bird’s-eye views of all the city’s iconic landmarks including New York-New York Hotel & Casino’s skyscrapers,  Luxor sky beam, Paris Las Vegas’ Eiffel Tower and Fountains of Bellagio—all before making a hairpin turn around the 1,000-foot-high Strat.

Next, the shuttle returns guests to The LINQ Hotel & Casino where they make their way to FLY LINQ, the only zipline in the world to offer guests four different ways to fly – seated position or “superhero-style,” with both options available facing either forward or backward. Guests will descend from FLY LINQ’s 114-foot-tall launch tower to the landing tower near the base of High Roller, the world’s tallest observation wheel. Flying at nearly 40 MPH, riders will soar 1,121 feet above the entire length of The LINQ Promenade.

 

Once guests’ feet are firmly on the ground, they can take the edge off and conclude their experience with a beer flight at The Book at The LINQ Hotel & Casino. The beer flight includes four 5-ounce draft beers from The Book’s infamous “beer yourself” self-pouring beer wall with nearly 25 beers on tap including seasonal specialties. The Book is the Strip’s newest and most innovative race and sports book experience offering live leaderboards, gaming consoles and five augmented reality games.

 

Priced at $149 per person, two-person minimum (gratuity not included), this experience also includes roundtrip transfers between The LINQ Hotel & Casino and the Papillon Las Vegas terminal. For more information and to book this experience:

FLY LINQ BECOMES FIRST ZIPLINE IN THE WORLD
TO OFFER FOUR WAYS RIDERS CAN SIMULTANEOUSLY FLY ON 10 LINES
FLY LINQ Guests Now Have Four Positions to Choose from: Superhero or Seated Frontward or Backward

 

FLY LINQ is now the only zipline in the world to offer four ride styles that can launch simultaneously on 10 side-by-side lines.

 

FLY LINQ, which is also the only zipline on the Las Vegas Strip, now gives riders four ways they can fly:

  1. Prone or “superhero”– backward
  2. Prone or “superhero”– frontward
  3. Seated – backward
  4. Seated – frontward

“We created an exhilarating experience that only FLY LINQ could deliver. For the first time, we are giving riders the option to fly seated or prone backward whereas before they were only able to fly frontward,” says Shaun Swanger, senior vice president of attractions, retail and leasing, The LINQ Promenade and Caesars Attractions. “This will further create an excitement for the guest who is flying and for guests watching from below.”

 

Located at The LINQ Promenade, FLY LINQ guests begin their ride by taking an elevator designed to provide Strip views from The Vortex at The LINQ Hotel & Casino to the top of the 114-foot-tall launch tower above The LINQ Promenade. After enjoying spectacular Strip views during the ascent, guests arrive on the launch deck, where gear-fitting and a photo opportunity takes place. From the launch tower, the ride continues eastward, traveling 1,121 feet through The LINQ Promenade to the landing tower. Riders disembark near the base of High Roller.

CAESARS ENTERTAINMENT INTRODUCES FLY LINQ AT THE LINQ
PROMENADE, THE FIRST ZIPLINE EXPERIENCE ON THE LAS VEGAS STRIP

Today, Caesars Entertainment Corporation, owner of The LINQ Promenade, announced the intended addition of Fly LINQ, expected to be the first and only 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 features 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 situated at the heart of the Las Vegas Strip. Construction is expected to begin in the spring of next year.

“Fly LINQ will further establish The LINQ Promenade as a must-visit destination, particularly for distinctive Las Vegas entertainment experiences,” said Bob Morse, President of Hospitality, Caesars Entertainment Corporation. “This new experience will join The LINQ Promenade’s growing number of thrilling and memorable entertainment, dining and retail options.”

Guests are expected to 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 enjoying spectacular views of the Strip during the ascent, 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. To remember their exhilarating experience, guests will be able to opt to purchase professional photos—either individually or as a group—dressed in full flight gear and in mid-air.

Fly LINQ is expected to feature two automated gear retrieval lines that will keep queues moving quickly by swiftly returning gear back to the launch tower. In addition, it is planned to feature an innovative, custom-built automated ride system as well as best-in-class technology developed by global leaders in zipline construction.

Fly LINQ is being developed in conjunction with Xventure LV, LLC, a company built by hospitality and attractions industry veterans, delivering the most advanced thrill rides in the most exciting locations imaginable. Xventure specializes in high-capacity adventure rides situated in prime urban locations and Fly LINQ will be its most ambitious project to date. Xventure will lead the development and operations of Fly LINQ.

“Xventure is thrilled to work with Caesars Entertainment to give thrill seekers an adrenaline-packed experience in the center of the Las Vegas Strip,” says Joey Paulos, principal and managing member of Xventure.

Fly LINQ will reunite many of the team members behind the development of the High Roller observation wheel, including Themed Development Management (TDM) as project manager. In addition to the High Roller, TDM’s principals and executives have extensive experience in creating major theme parks and attractions.
