Fremont St Zipline!

Steve Friess is a Las Vegas-based freelance journalist and if he says it, I believe it. A zipline over Fremont St is on its way:

http://thestrippodcast.blogspot.com/...t-zipline.html

He is also spreading a rumor about a zipline at Excalibur!!

This is all from the people who operate the Bootleg Canyon Zipline in Boulder City - http://www.bcflightlines.com/home.html - the ziplines in town are intended to be a promotional activity for the Bootleg Canyon Flightline.

Sounds like fun!!

My sister and I went to Vegas beginning of Dec. Yes there is a zip line on Fremont street. We watched the overhead lightshow and there were people going on the zip line during the show. Looked like fun but was too expensive for us as that time. We stayed at Excalibur and there was no zip line there.

Hmm, their web site doesn't say anything about an all day ticket. Where do I find out about that? Will be in LV in another week or so, and if we have time, I plan to look into this.

went zip lining on 5/4 and it was a blast. We arrived at 7 pm, and bought the "all day pass" for $50. We zip lined almost until they closed at midnight and got in 8 rides. It was really fun and i would recommend it.

Yes. It's true...we just came back from Las Vegas and watched many people do the Fremont Street zipline. We didn't do it, but it looked like a lot of fun.

It looked like people were getting jerked alot when stopping at the end. I hope no-one shoulder's got hurt if they held on too tight.
