For five months, SlotZilla has reigned over the Fremont Street Experience, waiting for the first riders to take flight. In late April, the massive zipline opened for business, launching brave folks 850 feet down the pedestrian spectacle and adding silhouetted strangers to your view of the canopy. SlotZilla’s upper “zoomline,” 114 feet high and 1,700 feet long, is expected to begin giving Superman-style rides in June.
