Commitment to Charity
Additionally, Fremont Street Experience has given more than $200,000 to local nonprofit organizations during its SlotZilla Charity Challenge. Local nonprofits are chosen to partner with SlotZilla on a specific day and 100% of SlotZilla revenue from flights on the lower Zipline ($20) or upper Zoomline ($40) is donated to the organization. Past benefitting organizations include: Susan G. Komen Nevada, American Heart Association, Opportunity Village, The Animal Foundation and St. Jude’s Ranch for Children. The next charity challenge is scheduled for September 13, 2016 from 1-7 p.m. benefitting Three Square Food Bank.
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. Advance ticket purchases can also be made online at http://www.vegasexperience.com or by calling 1-844-ZIPVEGAS.
