Slotzilla Zip Line: Flying over Fremont Street Experience
Slotzilla zip line is quite a new exciting attraction in downtown Las Vegas. Long awaited, the zip line opened in April 2014 and since then more than half a million riders took the plunge.
What's so cool about flying Slotzila zip line
Have you ever flown from inside a slot machine? Now you can do it, and not just anywhere, but above the Fremont Street Experience in Las Vegas! The 12 story zip-line tower is a feature that epitomizes Vegas and all that it has to offer.
Slotzilla is not only the largest slot machine in the world, but it looks beautiful too It has a huge animated arm and video reels that simulate a real slot machine. It also features a martini glass drink, pink flamingo, large dice, coins and two typical Las Vegas showgirls.
Few people know that the two Slotzilla showgirls were actually inspired by two real women: Porsha Revesz and Jennifer Johnson, who used to be dressed like this when they were accompanying the former mayor of Las Vegas, Oscar Goodman in his public appearances.
Here are the 2 neon signs at the bottom of the Slotzilla Zip Line tower, viewed at night:

Slotzilla zip line is totally safe
Who wouldn’t want to fly like a superhero for just $20? I believe that someday I’ll overcome this acrophobia and get my superhero moment :)
You can choose the difficulty level you want to try
- The standard zipline (for $20) is the easiest level of difficulty: it starts at 77 feet high and it brings you to the middle of the Fremont Street Experience, between Four Queens casino and Fremont Casino
- The so called Zoom line (for $40) takes you all the way over the mall from 114 feet above the ground (10 story building). You land right over the last stage, between Golden Gate casino and Las Vegas Club casino. The photo below was taken on St.Patrick's Day, when the show was on :)
But where exactly is Slotzilla zip line?
Slotzilla zip line is situated right at the beginning of the Fremont Street Experience, on the East side. As you cross Las Vegas Boulevard N. from the Fremont Street East district you see the Welcome to Downtown Las Vegas sign mounted on the Slotzilla tower. More precisely it is between the Heart Attack Grill Restaurant and Hennessey’s Tavern.
The tower is easy to access too: there are elevators to the top level, so you don't need to take the stairs all the way up.
The place to buy tickets for the Slotzilla zip line is right at the foot of the tower - you cannot miss it :)
You can also buy tickets online, at the official Slotzilla website
