A. In most cases, yes. A SlotZilla supervisor will take the guest up to the take-off deck in a Fremont Experience wheelchair. Someone from the guest’s party must meet the guest at the landing platform with their personal wheelchair. Some additional restrictions may apply for those with prosthetic limbs due to harness and safety requirements. For questions please call the Ticket Office at 702-678-5780 during normal business hours.
Q. Is my flight “both ways”?
A. No, SlotZilla is a gravity-based ride, so it doesn’t go in both directions! All flights are one-way only. You’ll have to walk back to your party or have them meet you at the landing point for the Zipline (in front of Four Queens) or Zoomline (at Golden Gate).
Q. Are there age/weight/height requirements?

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.

A. There are four lines for the Zipline and four lines for the Zoomline, so four guests can go at the same time.
