10 Tips to Get the Most From Your SlotZilla Zipline Ride

Flying down Fremont Street Experience on the SlotZilla zipline is a thrill like no other. More than a million people have shared the adrenaline rush of riding the world’s ultimate zipline.

To help make the most of your SlotZilla flight, we’ve put together some useful tips. Strap in and get ready to fly!

1. Choose to Zip or Zoom

SlotZilla, in fact, has has two ziplines (see below).

On the Zipline, guests fly seated, and the ride goes halfway down the Fremont Street Experience to the landing platform between the Four Queens and Fremont casinos.

On the upper Zoomline, guests lie face down and fly superhero-style all the way down to the Golden Gate casino. Both lines provide a different experience, so splurge and fly on both!

Choose how you fly! Seated or superhero-style!

2. Fly for Speed

As with most ziplines, SlotZilla is gravity-based. You can affect how fast you fly, though, especially on the upper Zoomline. Arm position is important, as the more “drag” you create, the slower you’ll go. For maximum velocity, keep your arms to your side. When you fly on the Zoomline, get even more speed by pushing off rather than waiting for gravity do its thing.

This works, too. Arms out to your sides, not so much.

3. Zip and Zoom Smart, Save Time

Once you know you’d like to fly, it’s recommended you purchase tickets ahead of time, online. Tickets are also available in the SlotZilla ticket office at the base of the SlotZilla tower. Tickets are purchased based upon date and time. Flight times fill up quickly, so avoid disappointment and book ahead.

4. Picking Up Your Tickets

Once your tickets are purchased, get your official SlotZilla wristband in the box office. You can use the kiosk (for will call orders, you’ll need an order I.D.) or get your wristband from a cashier.

5. Understand Boarding Times

Boarding times are in 20-minute increments. Think of it as a 20-minute window of time. If you have a 1:00 p.m. boarding time, you can enter the ride any time between 1:00 p.m. and 1:20 p.m. It’s important to keep in mind boarding times aren’t flight times. Your boarding time is simply when your experience begins. Once you’ve purchased tickets and picked up your wristbands, allow up to an hour from the time you “board” to the time you fly.

6. Get Your Merch Before You Fly

Make sure to get your SlotZilla goodies before you take off. It will save you a trip all the way back to the take-off tower.

7. Stow Your Stuff

A handy accessory bag will be making the trip down Fremont Street Experience with you, so stow your freshly-purchased merchandise, glasses, cowboy hat, tiara, phone or purse in the bag.

Please put all veils in the accessory bag, thanks.

8. Find Discounts and Coupons

Several downtown Las Vegas casinos offer 25% off coupons for daytime SlotZilla flights. You can usually find these coupons at the casino’s players club desk.

9. Take Care With Your Underwear

No, really. You’re dangling over thousands of people looking up at you. Short skirts probably aren’t the best idea. Also, you don’t want to inadvertently flash the masses by going commando.

10. Smile for the Camera

Whether you zip or zoom, everyone gets their photo taken on SlotZilla. The key to a great photo, available for purchase at your landing platform, is to know when you’re being photographed (as your flight comes to an end) so you can look at the camera and smile. So, as you’re coming in for a landing, watch for the photographer snapping away on the landing platform.

Once you have your picture, be sure to share on social media using #SlotZilla!

For the safety of those on the street, no personal photographic devices are allowed on SlotZilla. Selfies are welcome on the harness deck, of course. If video is more your speed, GoPro camera helmets are available for rental.

SlotZilla is unlike anything you’ve ever experienced, and it’s an unforgettable way to experience downtown Las Vegas.

You’ll soar above thousands of revelers, taking in the neon lights of Glitter Gulch and basking in the glow of the world’s largest video screen.

    1. GoPro cameras (attached to helmets) are available for rent at the SlotZilla tower. If you share the video, make sure to tag us so we can take a look and pass it on!

    1. Yes, as long as they are fastened securely. We also provide an accessory bag, so you can stow them safely if you prefer.

  1. Incredibly disfunctional business. Saturday evening, May 6, was chaos long BEFORE the ride was shut down for lightning. The lightning had nothing to do with their lack of organization. It was running well over 2 hours behind before it was shut down and had all of the hallmarks of having been oversold. They have taken a page from the airlines business plan – overbooking seats. There is no point booking your spot in advance. Booking mine a week early made no difference at all.

    Went back to ride on Monday and was met by the rudest and most uninformed female staff member, Alejandro (if that’s her real name – I suspect she lied). The rest of the staff were good and doing their best to make a poorly run business an enjoyable experience for the customers.

  2. It was a great ride. The only scary part about it was that all of the employees seemed more interested in their cell phones than in making sure all of the equipment was safely attached to the customers.

  3. I am a plus size girl and would love to experience this when we come to Vegas in May. Is there a weight restriction?

    1. Zipline guests must be at least 50 pounds.
      Zoomline, guests must be at least 80 pounds to ride.
      Maximum weight allowed for either ride is 300 pounds.

      Maximum height for either ride is 6’8″. There are no age limits as long as the weight requirements are met, although flyers younger than 16 must be accompanied by a rider 16 or older. Please note, “accompanied” doesn’t mean the same line. Guests fly individually, of course.

  4. Hi I am going on this in May with my 3 sisters. Can you tell me if the GoPro would capture the 4 of us

    1. The zipline goes in one direction, so you’ll need to walk back. We recommend parking at the Fremont Street Experience parking structure, near the base of the take-off tower.
