LAS VEGAS — A new zip line connecting two towers at Las Vegas' Rio casino is set to open in early November.

The VooDoo Skyline at the off-the-Strip casino will start at the patio of the VooDoo Steakhouse on the 50th floor of the Masquerade Tower. Riders will glide to the 20-story Ipanema Tower and then return back to their starting point.

The ride covers one-third of a mile in 70 seconds. Tickets are $25.

Sin City is expecting two more zip lines in the future. A popular ride at downtown's Fremont Street Experience is being reinvented under the name "Slotzilla," although the project is behind schedule.

Officials with MGM Resorts International say a project to build a zip line between the Luxor and Excalibur casinos is still in the planning stages.
