(Las Vegas, NV) — You can now ride downtown Las Vegas’ newest zip line attraction.

SlotZilla opened to paying customers under the Fremont Street Experience Sunday afternoon, following approval from local inspectors.

Rides start from a 12-story tower designed like a giant slot machine. Riders can now take the 77-foot-high zip lines, which harness visitors in a sitting position and take them 850 lateral feet to a platform near the 3rd Street Stage.

A zoom line opening later this spring launches riders from 114 feet up and sends them gliding in a horizontal “Superman” position 1,700 feet across the entertainment district.

Both travel at a speed of 35 miles per hour.

Riders must weigh between 60 and 300 pounds.  The cost is $20, day or night.  The zoom line will cost $30.

SlotZilla employs about 100 people.
