Ten fliers donned FLY LINQ-branded superhero ensembles to kick off the new year. As they soared above The LINQ Promenade, festive confetti cannons positioned along the open-air entertainment district detonated in celebration of this new, $20 million attraction.
“FLY LINQ is an exciting addition to The LINQ Promenade’s attraction portfolio, adding a new dynamism to the environment, regardless whether you’re riding or waving at the fliers from below,” says Shaun Swanger, senior vice president of attractions, retail and leasing for Caesars Entertainment. “We’re thrilled to begin 2019 and invite the world to come and experience this exhilarating attraction.”
