Vegas to expand Zip Line

Every time the wife and I travel to Vegas we take a look up at the Zip Line running over Fremont street and vow that we're going to ride it.  As is inevitable, Las Vegas gets in the way and the lines and time crunches prevent us from doing so.  However, today's news that The zip line is expanding makes me want to now ride it even more.

Tourists will soon have a new way to see the lights of Las Vegas: By being spit out of the mouth of an 11-story slot machine and zinged down a five-block zip line past some of the city's oldest casinos.

Officials on Tuesday unveiled plans for a permanent zip line on the downtown Las Vegas promenade known as the Fremont Street Experience.

Standing beside a scale model and two showgirls at the unveiling, Las Vegas Mayor Carolyn Goodman said the SlotZilla thrill ride was destined to become an iconic city landmark.

On my last trip to Puerto Rico earlier this year the wife and I did a canopy zip-line tour and had a blast.  Obviously the Fremont Street line will be much different but I have to admit that I'm wanting to give it a try.  This being Vegas, it will undoubtedly be overpriced and overhyped but it still sounds like fun.
