Slotzilla Zipline on Fremont Street

The zipline on Fremont Street is getting upgraded. What had been a temporary platform will be transformed into a huge faux slot machine called Slotzilla where thrill-seekers will begin their descent.

The new permanent attraction will increase the zipline height to approximately 100 feet and the length to 1700 feet. The slot machine structure will have two levels of four ziplines each, and will also feature safety doors and the ability to "launch" riders.

The new zipline is scheduled to open during the first half of 2013.

This video from coastercrew has a good explanation of the attraction from a project consultant, along with a model of Slotzilla:
