Fremont Street is where the classic old Las Vegas still thrives. The mob heritage is cherished here and most people agree that downtown is where visitors can get the most bang for their buck. The gaming table limits are lower, the prices of dining specials are dirt cheap and the slot machines actually payout a few jackpots. Better still, the entertainment on Fremont Street is free, so this entertainment district inspires people to party till they can party no more!
There are several band stages on Fremont Street that host top performers. The Fremont Experience Canopy is a 300 yard long high resolution theater screen with a great sound system to match and the hourly light shows are free of charge. Every casino has a street level open air bar that keeps the party going on till the wee hours of the morning. To top it all off, Fremont Street now is the home of Slotzilla, which is one of the greatest zip-line thrill rides of them all!
The old Fremont Zip-Line was installed a few years ago and it was an instant success. The price was right and thrill seekers got a kick out of flying through the air under the Fremont Street Experience Canopy. The original zip-line only stretched about half the length of the Fremont Street entertainment area, so expansion was inevitable and plans were made to improve the zip-line by lengthening the run and making it a permanent fixture. The result was the awesome 12 story tall Slotzilla!
Slotzilla looks like a gigantic slot machine with zip-line windows where the prize wheel would normally be. Thrill seekers are jettisoned out of the giant slot machine right down Fremont Street under the canopy. There are two Slotzilla zip-line tracks to choose from and the bargain priced lower zip-line goes about halfway down Fremont Street, just like the original one did. Riders of the low zip-line are seated upright in a harness, which gives riders the sensation of swinging on a vine. The higher priced new Slotzilla zip-line launches about 10 feet higher and it runs the entire length of the Fremont Street Experience. Riders on the high zip-line are harnessed in the prone position and the effect of flying through the air head first compares to soaring like a bird.
As can be imagined, flying down the high zip line under the Fremont Street Experience canopy at night during a light show after having a few cocktails can be likened to a thrilling psychedelic endeavor. The sensory overload will certainly lead to smiles and hysterical laughter long after the thrill ride ends. Slotzilla is much more than just an ordinary zip-line experience and this is a good reason to check it out!
