The SlotZilla zipline in downtown Las Vegas recently celebrated its fifth anniversary. Thrill-seekers have been enjoying this one-of-a-kind attraction since 2014.
The official opening date of SlotZilla was August 31, 2014. That’s the day SlotZilla’s upper Zoomline opened, although the lower Zipline had been in operation since April 27, 2014.
Since opening in 2014, the SlotZilla zipline has welcomed more than two million riders!
