Get harnessed up and experience four thrilling zipline runs, each of which gives a different view of the beauty and variety of the rugged desert landscape. Each of the four runs includes four parallel lines, so members of one family can fly side-by-side if they wish.
Plunge 450 ft in the first 15 seconds on the First Run, the one with the biggest drop. Get magnificent views of Lake Mead on the Second Run, relax and look around on the Third Run – the longest – and feel the adrenalin rush on the Fourth Run, the shortest and arguably the most exciting of all.
For your thrilling Bootleg Canyon Zip Line Adventure you will be picked up from the Excalibur Hotel, Rear Tour Bus Rotunda. Alternatively you can make your own way to the mountain base at 1512 Industrial Rd, Boulder City, NV 89005, 25-30 minutes from the Las Vegas Strip.
When you arrive at the office you will be asked to fill out a waiver form. (Anyone under the age of 18 must have a waiver filled out by a guardian.)
Approximately 15-30 minutes prior to your tour start time, you will be escorted from the office into the Flight School area. Here, the guides will provide you with orientation, a harness, and demonstration of safety procedures. The harness is equipped with a full back panel including a zipper pocket for a small camera or personally required essentials. The harness is built for safety and comfort including supportive, padded leg straps.
When you have completed Flight School, you begin a 15-minute scenic bus ride up Red Mountain. You will enjoy sights of mountain bikers, a view overlooking the Las Vegas Strip and maybe some desert wild life.
Once you have reached the limits of the tour bus, a moderate hike will begin. The guides are available to assist with equipment during your journey to the summit of Red Mountain. During the hike, you are welcome to stop as often as necessary to rest, or ‘take pictures’. Once at the summit of Red Mountain (3800 ft. above sea level) you will see breathtaking views of Las Vegas Valley, Lake Mead and the Eldorado Valley.
The First Run has the biggest drop of the four zip lines (flightlines) on the tour. You will plunge 450 ft in the first 15 seconds; you will not, however, feel the weightlessness associated with roller coasters. Each of the four runs includes four parallel lines, which allows up to four guests to fly next to each other at a time.
Once all guests in your tour group have completed the First Run you will continue on to the take off platform for the Second Run. Each take-off platform provides a unique view of the mountainous terrain from a different elevation. These different viewing perspectives truly showcase the variety and beauty of the desert, which ever so briefly, separates you from the lights and noise of the Las Vegas Strip.
The Second Run provides a beautiful view of Lake Mead while soaring 1864 feet across the desert valley below.
The Third Run is just shy of a stimulating half mile in length, allowing plenty of time in flight to absorb the beauty around you.
The Fourth Run is the shortest and some say the most exciting run at just over 1100 feet in length. With this run the tour concludes near the welcome area for Bootleg Canyon Park. Here you will also find bathrooms and running water.
The local tour operator’s bus will pick up the group and shuttle everyone back to the office where the tour began. Once back at the shop you will have the option to fill out comment/gratuity cards, purchase retail, and purchase pictures.
If you have opted for hotel pick-up and drop-off then a bus will drop you back at the Excalibur Hotel, Boulder City.
Upon arrival in Las Vegas, please call the number on your voucher at least 24 hours in advance to confirm your departure time and location. Please have your printed voucher in hand to present to the guide upon boarding.
