Things to Do in Las Vegas Now Include SlotZilla’s Upper Zoomline

September 10, 2014

Things to do in Las Vegas lists around the world just got longer. The much-anticipated upper SlotZilla Zoomline at Fremont Street Experience is now open!

The new set of zip lines take flyers from a 114 foot high launch deck, superhero-style (prone), the full length of the Fremont Street Experience for $40. That’s about 1,700 feet, or nearly the length of five football fields!

Ready for a life-altering experience in Las Vegas? We’ve got this.

SlotZilla’s lower Zipline has been in operation for several months, and is already topping Things to Do in Las Vegas lists.

The Zipline lands about halfway down the Fremont Street Experience, with guests flying in a traditional seated position, for $20.

This illustrates the two levels olf "Aieee!" at the premier zip line in Las Vegas, SlotZilla.

This exciting Las Vegas zip line is the ultimate way to see downtown as you’ve never seen it before, soaring above the world’s biggest block party and beneath the world’s largest video screen. See more about the ultimate Las Vegas zip line.

One of the thrills of the just-opened Zoomline is that while flyers take off 114 feet up, the roof of the Viva Vision screen at Fremont Street Experience is 90 feet up. That means flyers start above the video screen, swooping down and flying below it, often during some of the most spectacular light shows in the world.

A truly one-of-a-kind view.

The SlotZilla zip line was originally announced in November, 2012.

The new Las Vegas thrill ride cost $17 million to build.

Here’s a look at guests taking off on the new Zoomline.

 

The SlotZilla launch tower, in the shape of a massive slot machine, features lots of iconic Las Vegas images including a martini glass (see below), a pink flamingo, coins and dice.

Some Vegas-themed bling.

Atop SlotZilla is a red spinning light. On slot machines, these lights are known as “candles,” and are color-coded to denote the denomination (pennies, quarters, dollars) of the slot machine.

Typically, a red candle means a slot machine takes nickels. Now you know!

At regular intervals, a giant handle, or arm, on SlotZilla moves forward and video screens simulate the reels of a slot machine. By the way, the arm is what gave slot machines their nickname, “one-armed bandits.”

Did you know that in sports gambling, “handle” means the total amount of money wagered on an event?

The structure also boasts two curvy Las Vegas showgirls. The showgirls are based upon two real people, models Jennifer Johnson and Porsha Revesz (see the showgirl she inspired, below). The two women often accompanied former Mayor Oscar Goodman for public appearances and are now immortalized on each side of SlotZilla.

It doesn’t get any more iconic than a Las Vegas showgirl.

The east-facing side of SlotZilla features colorful stars in the Googie style of art, as well as a nod to the famous “Welcome to Fabulous Downtown Las Vegas” sign.

    Hi, I would like to do the zipline or zoomline, do they both travel the same distance and are you lying face down on both please

    • sroeben

      Nope, two ways of flying and to different destinations. The lower line (Zipline) flies halfway down the Fremont Street Experience (sitting), the Zoomline (upper) goes all the way down, to Golden Gate. On the Zoom, you fly like Superman.
