“We are excited to co-host this SlotZilla Charity Challenge with X107.5 to give back to the children from St. Jude’s Ranch,” said Jeff Victor, president of Fremont Street Experience. “St. Jude’s Ranch is an amazing organization that takes care of children and families in need in Southern Nevada. Everyone that comes down to fly on SlotZilla on either the Zoomline or Zipline on Monday, August 10 will be supporting a great cause with every dollar of revenue going to St. Jude’s Ranch.”
SlotZilla ticketing, will call and check-in office is located next to the SlotZilla takeoff tower on Fremont Street between 4th Street and Las Vegas Boulevard. Parking is available at Fremont Street Experience parking garage with entrance off 4th Street just north of Carson.
Zipline – Flyers take off from the lower tier of the tower, 77 feet high and zip in a traditional seated-harness position on an 850-foot flight – half the length of Fremont Street Experience – to a mid-point landing platform located between 3rd Street and Casino Center.
Zoomline – Flyers launch from 114 feet high and zoom in a horizontal “superman” position going 35 mph 1,750 feet across the entire length of Fremont Street Experience, and land on a platform atop a newly built Main Street Stage.
Children under 13 in age must be accompanied by a flyer age 13 or over. Flyers must weigh between 60-300 lbs. for Zipline and 100-300 lbs. for Zoomline, with a maximum 6’8” height for lower Zipline but no height limit on upper Zoomline. Flyers cannot be under the influence of drugs and alcohol. Flyers should not ride if they have health concerns, neck/shoulder problems, are pregnant, have heart trouble, problems with balance, or seizure disorders.
About St. Jude’s Ranch for Children
The mission of St. Jude’s Ranch for Children is to serve all abused, abandoned, and neglected children and families, creating new chances, new choices, and new hope in a safe homelike environment. Children are placed at the Ranch when their parents or caretakers are unable or unfit to adequately care for them. One of the most important features of the Ranch is the ability to keep large sibling groups together when they might otherwise be separated and scattered among several foster homes.

Zip & Zoom – Vegas Style on the world’s most unique zipline – SlotZilla™ at Fremont Street Experience located in Downtown Las Vegas. SlotZilla combines innovative technology with a dynamic themed concept to transcend a traditional zipline ride, becoming a ground-breaking attraction for the amusement industry. The attraction features two thrill levels, a lower Zipline where flyers travel half the length of Fremont Street Experience in a traditional seated-harness position and an upper Zoomline where flyers are launched in a horizontal “superman” position 1,750 feet across the entire length of Fremont Street Experience. Both levels deliver an experience unique in the world – flying above thousands of people on Fremont Street Experience and under the four-block-long Viva Vision canopy, which is North America’s largest video screen.
SlotZilla is open Sundays through Thursdays from noon to midnight, and Fridays and Saturdays from noon to 2 a.m. Flights are $20 for the lower Zipline and $40 for the upper Zoomline. Flight times can be booked in advance at the SlotZilla ticketing, will call & check-in office located at 425 Fremont St., Ste. 160.
