Your Guide to Having an Epic Las Vegas Experience

In 2022, Las Vegas hosted 38.8 million visitors, which is closing in on pre-pandemic levels.

There is plenty to do and activities for the whole family. Keep reading to discover how you can make your next trip to Las Vegas epic!

What to Do in Las Vegas

To begin, thrill seekers will love the zip lines in Las Vegas. Many locations host zip-line attractions, but nowhere comes close to what you can find in Las Vegas. There are two great options, Fly LINQ and Slotzilla.

The Fly LINQ experience lasts about 35 to 45 seconds for a half-mile distance. At 12 stories high, you can travel 35 miles per hour. You begin at the launch tower, which is 114 feet tall, with a gorgeous view of Las Vegas Boulevard.

Take their zip line with your friends or family too! Fly LINQ allows ten side-by-side zip lines.


Meanwhile, Slotzilla offers a 30-second zip line or a 60-second zoom line. The difference in length is 850 feet or 1700 feet, respectively. The heights are 77 feet high and 114 feet, respectively.

You will travel at a speed of 40 miles per hour. It’s a psychedelic experience you can enjoy in downtown Las Vegas.

Haley’s Comet Zip Line

For a truly unique zip-lining excursion where you can dip, soar, and glide “down The Spine,” visit AREA15. This is where hang gliding meets free-falling!
