LAS VEGAS >> Why have one Las Vegas zip line when you can have three?

The Rio casino off the Strip plans to build a new thrill ride that will zing tourists along 400 above the ground.

The Las Vegas Review-Journal reports the ride will be called Voodoo Skyline and is expected to open this summer. It will send adrenaline-seekers rushing from one tower to another and back again over the course of 70 seconds.

Sin City is expected to get two more zip line rides in the coming months. A currently operating zip line downtown is getting a facelift, and is expected to reopen this summer as “Slotzilla.”

MGM Resorts International has said it plans to build a zip line between the Luxor and Excalibur casinos directly on the Strip.
