Decorated like a gigantic slot machine, the Fremont Street zip line is a real feast for the eyes, complete with classic Vegas imagery like huge dice, cocktail glasses, showgirls, coins, and more. Like cash flowing out in the casinos, riders shoot out of the slot machine across to the other side, traveling up to 1,750 feet in total at breakneck speeds of up to 40mph.
Unlike anything else in the whole of Las Vegas, the Fremont Street zip line is an incredible attraction and a surefire hit with anyone brave enough to give it a try. Visitors only have good things to say about the experience and many book right up all over again after getting off at the other side, eager to experience the adrenaline rush and take in the sights and lights of Fremont Street from above one more time.
The Zip line is the simpler option and best recommended for people who want to enjoy the SlotZilla Fremont Street zip line experience without worrying about being too high up or going too fast. It's also the cheaper option, so if you'd like to test out SlotZilla for the lowest possible price, the Zip line is the option for you.
This zip line begins at a height of 77 feet, with participants assuming the standard zip line sitting position. Participants glide out through the giant slot machine and over the Fremont Street Experience promenade, marveling at the sights and sounds all around and the dazzled pedestrians down below. The experience lasts around thirty seconds in total and ends halfway along the promenade.
Not for the faint of heart, the Zoomline is the ultimate Fremont Street zip line experience. It's a little pricier, but the higher fee is more than justified with an experience that lasts twice as long as the Zip line and offers a thoroughly unique, unbeatable flight. The Zoomline starts off much higher than the Zip line, with participants setting off at a height of 114 feet from the ground.
The Zoomline lasts for a little over a minute and can reach maximum speeds of up to 40 miles per hour as riders soar bird-like over the flashing lights of Fremont Street, traveling an impressive 1,750 in total to finish up on a landing platform at the Golden Gate casino. Unlike other zip lines, the Zoomline lets riders experience flight from a laying-down position, Superman-style. This unique aspect really helps to set the Zoomline apart from any other zip line you might have tried before, resulting in a truly unique experience.
If you're considering a flight on the Fremont Street SlotZilla zip line, there are a few key things you need to know beforehand. As mentioned previously, there are two distinct options with this particular zip line, so it's important for visitors to familiarize themselves with the distinctions and choose between the Zipline and Zoomline depending on their own preferences. SlotZilla does often sell out, so it's wise to book in advance, but the Fremont Street zip lines run 7 days a week, all year long. The whole process can take between thirty minutes to an hour due to safety checks and sessions, so it's important to arrive in advance and allow enough time for the full experience.
The Fremont Street zip line does cater to disabled guests and tries to accommodate as many people as possible, but there are some restrictions to be aware of. There's no minimum age limit, but guests do need to weight 50 lbs or more. The maximum weight on this zip line is 300 lbs and the maximum height is 6'8". It’s also worth noting that any guests under the age of 16 will need to be accompanied by an adult. Both the Zipline and the Zoomline feature four lines which run simultaneously, so families and groups of friends of four or fewer can all ride together. As with any zip line, riders with heart conditions should not take part.
