Fremont Street Experience invites the public to Zip Now, Zoom Soon on the world’s most unique zipline – SlotZilla™. The new iconic attraction, built over the past 14 months at a cost of $12 million, is opening in two phases with the lower Zipline now open and the upper Zoomline opening later this spring.
“A lot of time and care went into the development of SlotZilla and we’re truly thrilled to be able to finally present this new iconic attraction for Las Vegas visitors and residents to experience,” said Jeff Victor, president of Fremont Street Experience. “Whether you zip now, zoom soon or do both, SlotZilla is a one-of-a-kind thrill that must be experienced. We believe the 12-story slot-machine-themed takeoff tower, which glows in neon at night, is a new must-see icon that can only be found at Fremont Street Experience in fabulous Downtown Las Vegas.”
SlotZilla flyers will `Zip & Zoom – Vegas Style’ on the world’s most unique zipline. The attraction features two thrill levels, a lower Zipline and an upper Zoomline. Flyers on the Zipline will take off from the lower tier of the tower, 77 ft. high and zip in a traditional seated-harness position on an 850 ft. flight – half the length of Fremont Street Experience – to a mid-point landing platform located between 3rd Street Stage and Casino Center. Flyers on the Zoomline will be launched from 114 ft. high and zoom in a horizontal “superman” position 1,700 ft. across the entire length of Fremont Street Experience, landing atop a newly built Main Street Stage. Both levels deliver an experience unique in the world – flying above thousands of people on Fremont Street Experience and under the four-block-long Viva Vision canopy, which is the world’s largest video screen.
SlotZilla combines innovative technology with a dynamic themed concept to transcend a traditional zipline ride, becoming a ground-breaking attraction for the amusement industry. SlotZilla features a proprietary braking system, giving flyers a smooth landing to their flight. The upper Zoomline will provide flyers an even greater thrill with its first-of-its-kind propulsion launch system which propels the flyer from the platform at speeds up to 35 mph.
SlotZilla will be open Sundays through Thursdays from noon to midnight, and Fridays and Saturdays from noon to 2 a.m. Flights are $20 for the lower Zipline and will be $30 for the upper Zoomline (opening later this spring). There are no age limits but flyers under 13 must be accompanied by a flyer at least 13 or over. Flyers must weigh at least 60 pounds but not more than 300 pounds, and persons over 6’8” will not be able to fly on the lower Zipline.
Flight times can be booked in advance at the SlotZilla ticketing, will call & check-in office located next to the SlotZilla takeoff tower on Fremont Street between 4th Street and Las Vegas Boulevard at 425 Fremont St., Ste. 160.
