Las Vegas Secret Agent Adventure

Race throughout Las Vegas just like a secret agent thanks to this one-of-a-kind new experience.  “Secret Agent 702” transforms mild-mannered Las Vegas visitors into sexy spies looking for the thrill of a lifetime by soaring through the skies via helicopter, taking to the road racing sports cars, and flying through the air at 3,800 feet on cable ziplines. Wined and dined in style, agents then finish the night dining and drinking in some of Las Vegas’ most exclusive private settings.

Do you think you have what it takes to accomplish your mission without getting caught by the enemy?  Let’s take a look:

Day One In Las Vegas

Guests will be picked up on the first night via limousine at McCarran International Airport with two shaken, not stirred, martinis waiting courtesy of HOTEL32, the exclusive boutique hotel located on the top floor of Monte Carlo Resort and Casino. Upon arrival, guests will be treated like the VIPs they are with a bellman waiting to personally escort them to their suite. No check-in desk here; guests proceed directly to their retreat where a suite assistant provides check-in within the comfort of their room. Grab complimentary refreshments and cocktails in the lounge, get a good night’s rest, and transform into “Secret Agent 702.”

Once in the room guests will receive a special package.  Inside will be disguises for including wigs, glasses and other special tools to help blend in and not stand out in the crowds.

Day Two in Las Vegas

At o-dark hundred (5 a.m.) , The Papillon Group will pick guest up by limousine and whisk agents away on their private helicopter tour of the Grand Canyon for a look at the splendor of this natural wonder that only the dawn of morning can offer. During the flight, guests will see stunning aerial views of Hoover Dam, Lake Mead and the Grand Canyon’s West rim. Landing 4,000 feet beneath the rim surrounded by the awe inspiring grandeur of the Grand Canyon, the flight is capped off by a champagne breakfast and refreshments served at the bottom of the canyon on a private plateau overlooking the Colorado River.

Up next: Flightlinez Bootleg Canyon, where the experience is much more than zipping, it is flying; the drops, the speed and the exhilaration are fantastic. Following a 15 minute ride up Red Mountain and a moderately challenging hike to the start off the tour, secret agents will be 3,800 feet above sea level as they reach Red Mountain’s summit. The tour begins with guests immediately experiencing the biggest drop, plunging 300 feet in the first 15 seconds. Each of the four runs includes four parallel lines, keeping the agents in sync as they fly side-by-side next to one another. The second run will leave agents soaring 1,864 feet across the desert. The next run on the line is 2,545 feet in length and the trip concludes with the final run at just over 1,150 feet.

Next, it’s a race to get across town to reach the Las Vegas Motor Speedway for Dream Racing.  Accelerating to 60 miles per hour in 3.5 seconds, the agents will transform into race-car drivers, taking a track-ready Ferrari F430 GT for seven laps. Dream Racing is the only place in Las Vegas where drivers can take to the track at the wheel of a true automotive machine specifically tuned for professional Gran Turismo (GT) racing. Upon arrival, they will be debriefed regarding the proper handling of the 2,700 pound race car. After that, they will get familiar with the twists and turns of the track courtesy of a unique 3D professional simulator.  As their adrenaline starts racing, the agents will climb into the Ferrari’s cockpit and the pit crew will prep for the start. The 1.1 mile track is a permanent circuit designed to professional race specifications and features low, medium and high speed corners and a straight with a maximum speed of 120 miles per hour!

With no rest for the weary, the agents will be taken back to the hotel for a quick change for dinner at Andre’s at Monte Carlo. A private dinner for two will be waiting – a 7-course tasting with cognac flights paired with post-dinner cigars.

Then head off to a private table for two at The Bank Nightclub at Bellagio Resort & Casino, where you can imbibe in style totally concealed from any lurking spies.  This exclusive venue is where the mission will be completed.
