Location: Arroyo Springs Street, Spring Valley
GlowZone is an alternative choice best suited for those interested in smaller thrills or families with young children. The attraction is an indoor, glow-themed amusement centre typically aimed at children, although adult nights are also a popular choice. GlowZone is located in the Las Vegas suburb of Spring Valley. There are an array of attractions at GlowZone but the Skyscraper Ropes Course is where you will find a more child-friendly zip line.
The zip line at glow zone starts only 20 feet in the air which, in comparison to other zip lining experiences in Las Vegas, is a tame thrill. The zip line allows guests to soar to the end of the challenging Skyscraper Ropes Course after mastering the swaying bridge, narrow planks, and fields of ropes and nets. Prices for GlowZone cover the whole attraction, not just the Skyscraper Ropes Course and zip line.
GlowZone also offers Spin Zone Bumper Cars, an arcade, Scale the City Climbing course, Glow Mini Gold, the Ninja Course, a laser maze, Bazooka Ball, and Soft City. Prices for GlowZone start at $20 for an hour of play and ranges to $35 for all day play.
VR Adventures – Las Vegas Boulevard:
VR Adventures presents a modern take on traditional zip lining as the attraction plunges visitors into the three-dimensional world of virtual reality. Guests simply have to put on cutting edge virtual reality goggles and they are immediately transported to the most electrifying thrill rides imaginable. One of VR Adventure’s most popular attractions is the Free Fall Zip Line.
Riders virtually enter an elevator which takes them to a great height, once guests reach the top of the elevator they must climb higher using a ladder to reach the zip line. From there, guests zip over the Caesars Palace pool to yet another elevator that transports them higher again.
Once at the very top, thrill-seekers must make the decision whether to virtually jump from the tower into free-fall, or use an even faster zip line to reach the ground.
This attraction located on the south end of Las Vegas Boulevard is a good alternative option for those who are unable to embark on a real zip line journey or those who seek smaller thrills. Prices for VR Adventures are based on individual attractions and the online fee for the Free Fall Zip Line is $20.
