Vegas doing Vegas things
The northbound lane of the Strip directly in front of the Linq will be closed until Sept. 15 for construction of a new zip line ride, Clark County officials said today.
The adjacent lane also will be closed from 1 to 9 a.m. Motorists are advised to seek an alternate route, officials said.
Caesars Entertainment Corp. is building the Fly Linq, which will launch riders from a 122-foot tower, soaring 1,080 feet over the Linq Promenade to the base of the High Roller observation wheel. The $20 million attraction, developed the team behind the High Roller, is expected to open by the end of the year.
COULD VEGAS BRING BACK DOLLAR BEERS, $5 3-2 BLACKJACK AND HOTEL ROOMS THAT AREN’T $200 A NIGHT? Just kidding, I like that they’re making a bunch of stuff for people to do that isn’t gambling. That way the losers that show up at the blackjack table and sit at third base have something to do besides playing blackjack.
