This week’s podcast we head out to Boulder City and talk with Las Vegas Territory member Brina Marcus of Flightlinez Bootleg Canyon in Boulder City, NV.
Boulder City is quickly becoming the adventure capital of Nevada and Flightlinez is in the center of it all. At the top of historic and beautiful Bootleg Canyon, you are surrounded by breathtaking views of Lake Mead, the Vegas Strip, Mt. Charleston and the Hoover Dam Bypass Bridge. On your adventure down the four runs, you reach speeds of up to 60 miles per hour!
For Brina, the adventure started out as a tourist visiting from Chicago. As a fitness instructor, she wanted more and found it with her first trip down the canyon. After getting her breath back, she asked about employment, she soon got her wish and then some!
Flightlinez Bootleg Canyon were also the operators of the original Zip Line on the Fremont Street Experience.
From ages 7 to 90, if you can handle a walk up a natural trail with a few switchbacks, you can experience a ride of a lifetime. We talk about the safety and the thrill of the Zip Line. Who, how and when to do it and about the various ways you can save a few bucks while getting out of the smokey casinos and into some nature for a day.
Hotel pickup or discount if you drive yourself.
Flightlinez offers locals discounts and even has a frequent Flightliners club
Brina likes to also promote the other wonderful businesses of Boulder City. Who can blame her? The little town that built a big dam, or as they like to say “A World Away for a Day” It’s a wonderful little town to spend some time in.
