Bootleg Canyon is known for its incredible hiking trails and beautiful lake views, but who wants to keep their feet firmly on the ground when they’re on holiday? You don’t just have to stick to The Strip for ziplining — Boulder City has your back.
Just 30 minutes outside of Las Vegas, Flightlinez has put together an eco-adventure that’s more than just your average zipline. Over the course of four hours, you’ll soar from the top of a desert mountain and be treated to spectacular views of Nevada, including Lake Mead, Eldorado Valley and Las Vegas itself.
You’ll be picked up from the Excalibur Hotel and Casino and taken through the scenic surrounds of Bootleg Canyon and, after a quick safety class where you’ll learn the ins and outs of wire-riding, you’ll be whisked up to the top of Red Mountain to begin the first challenge — a 15-minute hike to the ‘beginners’ platform. Breathe in that fresh mountain air and get ready to ride the lines, which range in length from 1,150 to 2,550 feet.
Your introduction to the Flightlinez course is a casual 3,800 feet above sea level, overlooking Sin City. It’s the first of four distinct runs, where you’ll be sailing through the air at speeds of up to 60 miles per hour in a paragliding harness. No biggie.
The entire course boasts a mile and a half of cable, spanning insane views of the scenic desert landscapes below. All the while, your professional tour guide will entertain you with historical, geological and ecological insights of the mountains and desert; and they’ll encourage you to keep your eyes open mid-zip to spot the canyon wildlife, like red-tail hawks, chuckwallas, bighorn sheep. These guys are pretty much Gandalf from Lord of the Rings — they’re super-knowledgeable, they lead you through the mountains, and they’re always ready to fly (“…you fools”).
Give yourself a break from the bright lights and nightlife of Vegas, and experience the natural side of Nevada in the Mojave Desert. You’ll see a whole lot of it over four different ziplines of over 8,000 feet in total. And you know what they say — time flies when… well, you know the rest.
