The highly-anticipated, sky-high zip line between the Rio hotel’s two towers is opening over the Memorial Day weekend. Mixed martial arts announcer Bruce Buffer will kick off the grand opening event for the VooDoo Zipline at noon on Sunday, May 25, yelling his signature catchphrase, “It’s time!”

Soaring round-trip more than 490 feet above the ground, VooDoo Zip Line launches two riders from the 50th floor of the Rio’s Masquerade Tower to the adjoining 20-story Ipanema Tower, and back. It promises to be an adrenaline-inducing, one-of-a-kind ride with views of one of the most famous streets in the world, the Las Vegas Strip.

Here are some fast facts about VooDoo Zip Line:

  • The first leg reaches speeds of up to 35 mph
  • The return trip travels backwards at 20 mph
  • It offers a 360-degree panorama of the Strip and scenic views of the valley
  • It covers one-third of a mile
  • It takes one minute and 10 seconds

VooDoo Zip Line is open to the public from noon to midnight Monday through Thursday and 10 a.m. to midnight Friday through Sunday. For more information, click here.

Yes, I’m from Las Vegas. But I’d like to clarify a few things: I don’t live in a hotel and I’m not a showgirl. I put my pasties on one nipple at a time, just like everyone else. I’m a regular girl who plunges off the side of ridiculously tall Las Vegas landmarks and writes about it for a living. I also ride roller coasters, hang at the spa, shoot holes in zombies and take art lessons from bottlenose dolphins. You know, normal stuff. My career as a journalist and copywriter has led me out of Vegas and around the world, but the 24/7 normality of Las Vegas sucks me back in every time. Am I oblivious to the plethora of slot machines everywhere I go? Sure. But that’s because I’m distracted by all the pretty lights. Follow me on Google+ and Twitter.
