Secret Agent 702 sounds like the spy who came in from the heat. But it's the name of a new Las Vegas adventure package aimed at thrill seekers who want to go race car driving and ziplining rather than gambling when they visit the 702 (that's the city's area code).

The two-day package starts with a limousine pickup at the airport and a stay at Hotel32, the boutique hotel atop the Monte Carlo Resort and Casino. Day 2 begins with an early morning helicopter tour of the Grand Canyon that touches down at the bottom on a plateau overlooking the Colorado River for a private Champagne breakfast.

From there, it's on to a zipline adventure from the 3,800-foot summit of Red Mountain in Bootleg Canyon that begins with a 300-foot plunge in 15 seconds. Three more runs keep the adrenaline pumping as you travel across the desert with a view of the city and Lake Mead.

Still on Day 2, the Las Vegas Motor Speedway awaits, where you take a few super-speedy laps in a Ferrari F430 GT race car before returning to the hotel for dinner at Andre's in the hotel and a table at the Bank nightclub at the Bellagio.

Date: The offer is good through Feb. 28. Reservations must be made 30 days in advance; some blackout dates apply.

Price: $6,800 for two. (Guests must be at least 21 years old.) It includes hotel stay for two nights, activities, one dinner and one nightclub pass.
