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!
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 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.
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.
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.
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.”
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.
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.
Come to think of it, you’d better add a photo op on both sides of SlotZilla to your list of things to do in Las Vegas, too.

With the opening of the SlotZilla Zoomline, visitors can experience downtown like never before. People have described their Zoomline flights as “surreal” and “dreamlike.”
From the street party below, to the 12.5 million LED lights overhead, the mind-blowing trip between the SlotZilla launch tower and the Golden Gate casino is a must-do in Las Vegas. The lower Zipline lands near the Four Queens and Fremont casinos.
There are some weight restrictions on SlotZilla. For the upper Zoomline, flyers must be between 100 and 300 pounds. The weight requirement for the lower Zipline is 60-300 pounds. Please make sure to consider these weight restrictions when you’re building your to-do list of things to do in Las Vegas.
