I worked hard on reviews of both Vegas zip-lines:



SlotZilla



Voodoo

Please have a look. I welcome all comments, questions, and especially corrections.

The question for the poll is which zip-lines do you plan to ride?
It's not whether you win or lose; it's whether or not you had a good bet.

I'd do both, but not for those prices.
DUHHIIIIIIIII HEARD THAT!

You might want to go for the trifecta and review Bootleg Canyon Flightlines.

Both are good additions to Vegas for tourists. Seems like SlotZilla always has a line at night while Rio is never busy. I would not want to be an investor in VooDoo. But DT attracts more non gaming tourists who are there and stumble upon it compared to Rio being less of a destination. VooDoo needs to come up with a marketing plan and perhaps transportation to get people to it. Otherwise it will not make it, in my opinion.

So which one would you recommend to someone who could only do 1?

Let's pretend the price does not matter and the person doesn't care about go pro.

Note sure about Mike, but in my opinion both have value. There is something to be said about gliding over historic Fremont and seeing all the people below.

VooDoo is higher and you get to see part of the strip and off strip Vegas.

If you are afraid of heights, both will be scary, but VooDoo is higher.

So I cant provide an answer on one or the other. Best bet if interested is do both and form your own opinion.

And I know that doesn't answer you question, but its Vegas and everyone has their own opinion on what they like best.

We talked about doing them the other week when we were there. Couldn't justify $80 for the freemont one and never made it to the rio. Maybe they will eventually have a Groupon or have bogo coupons.

Not sure If Fremont will have to, but Rio needs to based on what I observed.

I'd like to see an Article on that too.

For any midwesterners, I can recommend this one:

Valley Zipline Tours

The price is $ 90, but I have a discount code, pm me. It is out in the boondocks a bit, but in a scenic area. The course is 11 different ziplines, with some short ones to practice on since the rider handles the braking. Total Zipline length is 7000 feet.

I forgot about that one. I've seen it when I went mountain biking a while back. That is way out on the sticks. Business can't be too good for them since the other two opened. Thanks for the suggestion; I'll keep it in mind my next visit out that way.

I'd have to go with the long line on SlotZilla. Not as high or fast as Voodoo but the location is great and has the sensation of flying. The Voodoo is more like a ski lift that goes fast.
