If you think Vegas can't get any more daring, think again. Imagine being in the air soaring through the Fremont Street Experience, right underneath a colorful laser light show.
Breeze directly below the Viva Vision canopy on a memorable zip line ride. Before your run, you'll be strapped into a harness by the staff. For those who aren't familiar with zip-lines, passengers sit in a climbing harness that's suspended from cable wires. They'll give you the signal when to jump from the platform.
Once you take off, any anxiety you had before the jump is immediately put to rest. The refreshing breeze and the perfect speed of the zipline (30 miles per hour) puts you at ease. While you're soaring (the four zip line cables run 800 feet in length), the wind twirls you around in your harness, giving you a dazzling 360-degree view. How can something be so exhilarating and relaxing at the same time?
Just imagine the "ooh's" and "ahh's" you'll get from the crowd below. Some people will even snap pictures. For a split second, you feel like a celebrity.
While rides are offered in the daytime, going during the evening definitely has its perks. You can admire the bright, psychedelic light show from the Viva Vision canopy, which pairs perfectly with the music. Once you land at the platform -- which is a very smooth landing, by the way -- the staff will help you out of your harness and you'll get your picture taken. You can either order this shot or the candid shots of you during the flight.
The box office and launching elevator for Flightlinez at Fremont Street Experience is located right next to Walgreens, across from Neonopolis. After you weigh in, sign a waiver and buy your ticket, you'll walk next door to the elevator that takes you to the roof where your adventure begins. This is one of those rides you'll want to do every time you visit.
The same development team who brought Flightlinez at Fremont Street Experience also has establishments in Boulder City, Guyana, Haiti, Brazil, Panama, Ghana, Belize and Canada.
