NEW “FLIGHT OF FLIGHTS” EXPERIENCE FEATURING LAS VEGAS HELICOPTER FLIGHTS, ZIPLINING ON THE STRIP AVAILABLE BEGINNING TODAY
LAS VEGAS (April 2019) – Beginning today for the first time, the “Flight of Flights” experience is now available; the package includes three experiences: Papillon Grand Canyon Helicopters’ Las Vegas Strip flight at sunset; FLY LINQ ziplining and a beer flight from The Book at The LINQ Hotel & Casino.
Beginning with a shuttle pick-up at The LINQ Hotel & Casino’s tour bus depot, guests
are taken to the Papillon Grand Canyon Helicopters terminal at McCarran International Airport. From there, they are whisked away to fly over the Las Vegas Strip and Downtown Las Vegas at sunset. The tour provides dazzling bird’s-eye views of all the city’s iconic landmarks including New York-New York Hotel & Casino’s skyscrapers, Luxor sky beam, Paris Las Vegas’ Eiffel Tower and Fountains of Bellagio—all before making a hairpin turn around the 1,000-foot-high Strat.
Next, the shuttle returns guests to The LINQ Hotel & Casino where they make their way to FLY LINQ, the only zipline in the world to offer guests four different ways to fly–seated position or “superhero-style,” with both options available facing either forward or backward. Guests will descend from FLY LINQ’s 114-foot-tall launch tower to the landing tower near the base of High Roller, the world’s tallest observation wheel. Flying at nearly 40 MPH, riders will soar 1,121 feet above the entire length of The LINQ Promenade.
Once guests’ feet are firmly on the ground, they can take the edge off and conclude their experience with a beer flight at The Book at The LINQ Hotel & Casino. The beer flight includes four 5-ounce draft beers from The Book’s infamous “beer yourself” self- pouring beer wall with nearly 25 beers on tap including seasonal specialties. The Book is the Strip’s newest and most innovative race and sports book experience offering live leaderboards, gaming consoles and five augmented reality games.
Priced at an $149 per person, two-person minimum (gratuity not included), this experience also includes roundtrip transfers between The LINQ Hotel & Casino and the Papillon Las Vegas terminal. For more information and to book this experience:
