VooDoo Zip Line accommodates two riders at once and connects the two towers of the Rio Las Vegas more than 490 feet above the ground. The feet-dangling, adrenaline rush attraction begins on the patio of VooDoo Steakhouse, located on the 50th floor of the Masquerade Tower, and propels riders at speeds up to 33 miles per hour to the adjoining 20-story Ipanema Tower.

Guests make a return trip to the starting point traveling backwards at 20 miles per hour. Offering one of the best views of Las Vegas, VooDoo Zip Line boasts a 360-degree panorama of the Strip and scenic views of the surrounding mountain ranges. The heart-pumping adventure covers one-third of a mile in one minute and 10 seconds.
