Mixed martial arts announcer Bruce Buffer will host the VooDoo Zip Line at Rio All-Suite Hotel & Casino grand opening event on Sunday, May 25. Buffer will yell his signature catchphrase, “It’s time!,” to announce the ride’s official opening before soaring 490 feet above the ground on Las Vegas’ newest attraction.
VooDoo Zip Line Construction
Created by New Capital Ventures, VooDoo Zip Line accommodates two riders at once and connects the two towers of the Rio Las Vegas more than 490 feet above the ground. The feet-dangling, adrenaline rush attraction begins on the patio of VooDoo Steakhouse, located on the 50th floor of the Masquerade Tower, and propels riders at speeds up to 33 miles per hour to the adjoining 20-story Ipanema Tower. Guests make a return trip to the starting point traveling backwards at 20 miles per hour. Offering one of the best views of Las Vegas, VooDoo Zip Line boasts a 360-degree panorama of the Strip and scenic views of the surrounding mountain ranges. The heart-pumping adventure covers one-third of a mile in one minute and 10 seconds.

Only patrons 21 years of age or older will be allowed to ride after 8:30 p.m. Admission is $24.99 per person (plus applicable service fees) from noon to 5:30 p.m. and $37 per person (plus applicable service fees)from 5:30 p.m. to midnight.
