Truth In Advertising Dept.: The Voodoo Zipline
The VooDoo Zipline at Rio opened recently, sending riders flying over the excitement of The Strip. The Zipline isn't a real zipline, but instead a two way reverse chair lift that connects the Rio's two towers.
The VooDoo Zipline contains actual voodoo that makes riders truly believe that the zipline between Rio's two towers fly over the top of Ballys and the Flamingo.
Here's a neat video of one of the workers cutting zip ties freeing the cables to run free. The video is about twice as long as the actual ride is, but you certainly get the vertigo.
There is no way in hell you'd get me on this or the Slotzilla zip line on Fremont Street.
Big thanks to long-time VT reader Steve K for the tweet tip!
