Slotzilla – The New Zip Line in Vegas

I make the pilgrimage nearly every year out to Las Vegas. Not so much to gamble, but to enjoy the sights, sounds, and vibe of the city. There’s something about that place that I love so much and now I even more reason to. Starting in June 2013, construction on Slotzilla will begin on Fremont Street (aka Old Vegas).

Total cost is near the $11-million for the 11-story tall slot machine. Doesn’t sound too impressive right? What if I told you that you could zip line down to it? Yeah, that’s what I thought.

This is will be an extension to the already in place zip line open to the public for over 2 years now; yet no one told me of this during my last visit there.

According to the builders, this zip line will be different then most. You will be hung from your back (Superman-style), pushed over the edge, and left there hanging until they “launch” you down. One person who did a test run of a zip line like this said it “was like being fired out of a cannon.”

So you get to climb up to the top and zip down – I’m sold!

Back in September I did the Sky Jump off the Stratosphere. You want to talk about a rush, I loved it! Below is the video I shot via the wrist camera they gave me and a shot from my friends phone at the landing pad. If you are every in Vegas, do this!
