Slotzilla!!

So you’ve been to the casinos, seen every kind of show. You’ve even eaten anything and everything from one end of the Strip to the other. What now, you ask yourself?

Well ask no more. Let me introduce you to Slotzilla! This monster of a ride is located Downtown on Fremont Street. At 108′ high, it is a zipline that goes from one end of Fremont Street to the other.  And let me tell you, it is a blast! Scary, yes, but soooo much fun.

When you walk toward this monstrosity, it looks like a piece of cake. However, the closer you get, the more your neck cranks back to see the top of the ride. And if that isn’t enough, when the riders whiz by they look like specks against the sky.

But don’t let that discourage you as everything is on the up and up. Once you’ve paid your money, and take the elevator to the top, you are completely strapped in. Safe as bug in a rug.

Remember that old Tom Petty song, “The waiting is the hardest part?” Well, that’s the truth. Hanging from your strap as the door comes open, revealing the strip down below, is the only time I, personally, got nervous. Once you take off though, it is pure bliss. Flying over Fremont Street, screaming and smiling as I zoomed by was one of the most amazing experiences I have ever had in Las Vegas.

If casinos, shows and food aren’t enough for you, check out SLOTZILLA. You will be glad you did. My only advice would be to avoid the buffet before riding.
