Rio All-Suite Hotel & Casino Announces Plans for All-New Thrill Ride
Rio All-Suite Hotel & Casino
has announced it will develop an exciting new thrill ride, VooDoo Skyline, set to open late summer 2013. The exhilarating attraction will deliver a Las Vegas experience unlike any other – sending guests soaring higher than 400 feet in the air at electrifying speeds, offering 360-degree open-air views of the Las Vegas Strip. 

The one-minute and 10-second zip ride will takeoff from VooDoo Lounge, located atop Rio’s 50-story Masquerade tower, sending guests cascading more than 800 feet to the Ipanema tower and reaching speeds up to 33 miles per hour. VooDoo Skyline can accommodate up to two riders at one time and will have a unique feature – on the return trip guests will ride an additional 800 feet to the starting point facing backwards, a total ride of nearly one-third of a mile.

VooDoo Skyline is the creative collaboration between Rio All-Suite Hotel & Casino, New Capital Ventures partners Joe Shortal, Jonathan Borchetta and Stan Checketts, the creator of more than 200 amusement rides. The Las Vegas-based business is expected to bring an additional 35 to 40 jobs to the market.

“When developing VooDoo Skyline, we sought to create a one-of-a-kind, adrenaline-packed Vegas experience,” said Shortal.  “The zip ride – which is different than a zip line – will appeal to guests of all ages, offering both daytime and nighttime center-Strip views at exhilarating speeds that will take your breath away.”

“Rio has always been known for having some of the best views in Vegas. Now thrill-seeking guests can enjoy the legendary views that VooDoo Steak and VooDoo Rooftop Nightclub are best known for – from an entirely new dimension,” said Kevin Donnelly, director of hotel operations, Rio All-Suite Hotel & Casino. “We’re excited to be offering this invigorating new view of Las Vegas.”

VooDoo Skyline will be 7 days a week, offering rides from noon to midnight.

Situated high above Las Vegas on the 50th floor of Rio All-Suite Hotel & Casino’s Masquerade Tower, VooDoo Steak and VooDoo Rooftop Nightclub provide breathtaking views of the Las Vegas Strip. Specializing in gourmet steak selections, VooDoo Steak serves American cuisine with French Creole flair, open daily from 5 to 11 p.m.

Located directly above the elegant and exotic VooDoo Steak, VooDoo Rooftop Nightclub is an indoor/outdoor, double-decker nightclub featuring flair bartenders and lively music beginning at 9 p.m. nightly.
