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.

Here's the problem with that. From that height, Hawaiian visitors will be able to look out and see how nice the roads are everywhere in Vegas DESPITE their real estate downfall and high unemployment. Go figure. Might even be able to figure out the layout of their sewers to learn how Vegas's sewer company can function at 1/4 the cost of our sewer company.
