Ready to zip with views of the Vegas Strip?

Thrill seekers will soon have another reason to come to Vegas. By the end of summer, you should be able to soar 400 feet in the air on a 10-second zip ride (not to be confused with a zip line) between the Rio hotel’s 50-story Masquerade tower and Ipanema tower.

VooDoo Zip Line will launch from Voodoo Lounge, offering 360-degree open-air views  of the Vegas valley while accommodating two riders round-trip. The ride, which is reminiscent of a ski lift, will travel both forward and backwards nearly one-third of a mile at 33 miles per hour.

VooDoo Zip Line is slated to debut at the Rio hotel in late summer 2013 and will be open seven days a week from noon to midnight.

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.
