SlotZilla Zipline, Las Vegas
There are, in fact, two lines in operation: the lower zip – flying riders on a seated harness from 77 feet in the air, about seven stories up, for 850 feet, about half the length of the Fremont Street Experience; and the upper, horizontal Superman flying position launched from 114 feet, or 11 stories, up and spanning 1,700 feet, the length of the Fremont Street Experience. The former ride lasts about 30 seconds, while the latter is about one minute to complete.
Decorated with an over-sized dice, a martini glass, a pink flamingo, coins, video reels, a giant arm, and two 35-foot-tall showgirls, the $12-million structure took 14 months to build. The showgirls' replicas on its sides mimic the two real persons, Jennifer and Porsha. These girls often accompanied former Las Vegas mayor Oscar Goodman, a colorful individual, at numerous functions.
SlotZilla opened in 2014. Five years into operation, by August 2019 it had offered adventures to more than two million riders. Later that year, Viva Vision, the world’s largest single video screen – serving as the canopy for the six blocks of the Fremont Street Experience – went through a $32 million renovation to accommodate 3D graphic technology.
Obviously, the best time to enjoy SlotZilla is after dusk since the Fremont Street Experience is busier then and the experience of the Viva Vision light shows is more dramatic.
The light show goes on 7/24. Every hour from 6 pm to 1 am, it features a six-minute concert playing music and cool videos. Planning for a ride on the hour during those shows provides the best flying experience.
