Rio All-Suite Hotel & Casino has announced that it will develop a new thrill ride, Voodoo Skyline, set to open late this summer. The attraction will deliver a Las Vegas experience unlike any other – sending guests soaring more than 400 feet in the air at high speeds and offering 360-degree, open-air views of the Las Vegas Strip.

The one-minute-and-10-second zip ride will takeoff from the Voodoo Lounge, located at the top of Rio’s 50-story Masquerade tower, sending guests cascading more than 800 feet to the Ipanema tower and reaching speeds up to 33 miles per hour. Voodoo Skyline can accommodate up to two riders at one time and will have a unique feature – on the return trip guests will ride an additional 800 feet to the starting point facing backwards, a total ride of nearly one-third of a mile.
