The SlotZilla zip line in downtown Las Vegas has officially opened. The new attraction opened at noon on April 27, 2014.
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.
Rides on this new Las Vegas zip line cost $25 for the lower Zipline, $5 for the upper Zoomline. (Updated 2/14/17). Tickets can currently be purchased at the SlotZilla ticket office (at the base of the SlotZilla tower) or online.
SlotZilla operates 1:00 p.m. to 1:00 a.m., Sunday through Thursday, and 1:00 p.m. to 2:00 a.m. on Friday and Saturday.
While there’s no age limit for riders, their weight must be between 50 and 300 pounds for the lower Zipline, with a maximum height limit of six-foot-eight-inches. The zip line Las Vegas weight limit for the upper Zoomline is 80 pounds to 300 pounds.)
Children younger than 13 must be accompanied by a riding adult.
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.
The SlotZilla project began in November of 2012. See photos of SlotZilla’s construction.
