Just In Time For WSOP, Rio Opens 'VooDoo Zipline'

500-Foot Zipline To Take People From One Tower To Another


On Sunday, the Rio—home to the World Series of Poker—opened its “VooDoo Zipline.”

The project took around a year to complete. It was announced last May.

According to the Las Vegas Review-Journal, the VooDoo Zipline spans about a third of a mile between the Rio’s 51-story Masquerade Tower to the 20-story Ipanema Tower.

Rides cost $27.49 before 5:30 p.m. and $42.50 after.

The Rio’s zipline is motorized. Caesars Entertainment, which owns the Rio and other properties around Las Vegas, partnered with another firm for the project.

The 2014 World Series of Poker kicks off Tuesday at the Rio.
