Fremont Street Flightline

A new zip-line attraction will be opening soon at the Fremont Street Experience. Riders will be able to traverse 800 feet of zip-line under the Fremont Street canopy going from a height of 67 feet dropping down to a 15 feet high landing area.

This looks like a pretty cool attraction, and may be a good solution for thrill seekers who are too afraid, or don't want to pay $100 for the Stratosphere Sky Jump.

Oktoberfest is back for another haunting season of freakish fun at the Fremont Street Experience. If ghosts and goblins aren’t enough to scare you, why not fly down "Frightlines” under the Fremont Street Canopy. Imagine being part of the Viva Vision show as you launch down a zip line that runs approximately 800 feet in length. The crowds underneath cheer as you zoom past on your broom from 67 feet dropping down to 15 feet at landing!

Hours of Operation: (however the schedule will vary based on volume)
Weekends: Thurs, Fri, Sat 2pm – 2am
Weekdays: Sun-Wed 2pm - midnight

$15 before 6pm; $10 re-ride
$20 after 6pm; $15 re-ride

UPDATE: The temporary zipline on Fremont Street will be upgraded to a permanent structure called Slotzilla in 2013.
