SlotZilla Las Vegas Zip Line Opens at Downtown’s Fremont Street Experience

The SlotZilla zip line in downtown Las Vegas has officially opened. The new attraction opened at noon on April 27, 2014.

Four riders depart at once. Lighter riders arrive at the landing platform arrive last. It’s a gravity thing.

The new attraction has two take-off levels, but only the lower level is operating at the moment. The upper level (called a “Zoomline”) is expected to open in a few weeks. (UPDATE: SlotZilla’s upper Zoomline is also open.)

Riders on the lower lines travel seated, while riders on the upper lines will fly prone, or superhero-style.

Zoomline riders will emerge from an opening just under SlotZilla’s simulated reels.

Rides on this new Las Vegas zip line run $20. Tickets can currently be purchased at the SlotZilla ticket office (at the base of the SlotZilla tower), but will soon be available online. Unlike the earlier downtown zip line, there’s no difference in price between daytime and nighttime rides.

SlotZilla will operate noon to midnight, Sunday through Thursday, and noon to 2:00 a.m., Friday and Saturday.

While there’s no age limit for riders, their weight must be between 60 and 300 pounds, with a maximum height limit of six-foot-eight-inches. (Note: If you’re looking for zip line Las Vegas weight limit for the upper Zoomline, it’s 100 pounds to 300 pounds. There’s no height limit for the Zoomline.)

Children younger than 13 must be accompanied by a riding adult.

We hate when kids are braver than we are. Upstarts.

SlotZilla’s first day of full operation was sold out, so that bodes well for the success of the new zipline. SlotZilla is expected to operate seven days a week, 365 days a year.

Riders on the SlotZilla zip line take off 77 feet up. The upper lines will be 114 feet up.

The SlotZilla project began in November of 2012. See photos of SlotZilla’s construction.

    I have seen reports of the weight limit being both 250 and 300 pounds. Can you confirm one or the other? Makes a difference if I’m able to ride it or not haha.

    • vitalvegas

      Yep, I can confirm the weight limit is, indeed, 300. Let us know how it goes!

    How long is the usual wait in line for this attraction?

    • Typically about an hour, but during the day it’s much shorter.

  • Marie Johnston

    Can I do this in a big fluffy wedding dress?

    • Yes, just no trains! They should be able to make the dress work.

    • Yes, as long as they can fit you into the harness. There have been lots of brides who have been on it.
