No, we're looking out for a project we actually believe will happen. The Rio's twin tower thrill experience. We first told you about the Voodoo Zip Ride back in April. It begins three hundred and fifty seven feet up in the air and lets you fly at up to 33 miles an hour between the two points you see in the photo above. We've met people who get nervous just thinking about it.
When the rumor became official, they dropped the zip from the name and it was announced as the VooDoo SkyLine. Now, it's been officially renamed again, as the Voodoo Zip Line. Three words there. Their web page still features the SkyLine logo. Their email addresses, too. But Zip Line, for now, is the way forward.
Hmmm. What to make of a venture with an identity crisis? All promotion for the ride says it will be ready by summer. We walked around the Rio recently and only saw World Series of Poker action. No voodoo, that they'll do, so well. We're still excited, but can't help wondering about everyone else. The company Facebook page has only 136 likes since January. Their Twitter feed did just tell their 502 tweet-pals that big news was coming soon. Hope so. Every week, the local Vegas major announcements get bigger and crazier. A backwards and forwards zip ride hundreds of feet above the Rio's pool scene is already sounding so yesterday.
