Despite stalled growth in China, Brazil and Russia, a wave of newly middle-class travelers from the BRICs and beyond will start visiting international destinations in the coming decades — dwarfing the numbers we’ve seen thus far.
Hey, this is adventure travel via a zip line at a Las Vegas hotel and casino. Travelers can get a break from gambling in the casino and take their chances on the zip line.
Officials at the Rio casino are celebrating the grand opening of a zip line that runs between two of the resort’s towers and offers views of the Las Vegas Strip.
Mixed martial arts announcer Bruce Buffer is expected to yell his signature catchphrase, “It’s time!,” at noon on Sunday and then take a ride on the VooDoo Zip Line as part of the ceremony.
The line runs between the VooDoo Steakhouse on the 50th floor of a Rio tower and the 30-story tower next door. Seventy-second rides cost $25 per person during the afternoon and $37 after 5:30 p.m.
It’s the second zip line to open in Las Vegas this spring. The SlotZilla line running through the Fremont Street Experience opened in April.
