Two riders injured while traveling head first on Las Vegas’ newest zipline
LAS VEGAS (KSNV) —
There's a new way to "soar" on the Las Vegas Strip at the Fly LINQ Zipline
“The thrill, bucket list-type things, I like doing that,” said Crystal Morgan, a visitor.
Morgan remembers what it's like to zip across the sky.
“Amazing and I’m willing to try that one,” she said.
A spokesperson with Caesars entertainment shared in a statement:
“We are currently looking into incidents where two guests sustained injuries flying in the prone style (head first) mode. This happened after more than 3,000 incident-free rides. During this investigation, we will suspend the prone style mode and continue to offer the more traditional seated style mode on the ride.”
“Oh my goodness, now that is going to be spectacular,” said Dave Wilcox visiting from Arizona.
Wilcox got a first look at the Strip's newest attraction. He says he's ziplined a few times in his days.
“It was like you're free, you're just floating in the air,” Wilcox said.
He was surprised to learn what happened at the Fly LINQ zipline.
“Oh that's not good,” he said.
Morgan says it's not going to stop her from riding.
She's celebrating her birthday and says she's going to do it before she heads back home.
“I would still try it, I’ll take a risk,” she said.
No word yet on if or when people will be able to ride prone-style (head first).
