Article in Las Vegas Weekly with a couple interesting photos: http://lasvegasweekly.com/news/2014/jan/30/fremont-street-then-and-now/ One comment in the article is this: “SlotZilla is the single biggest mistake in the history of Fremont Street,” he says. “I’m heartbroken that that has occurred.” But given the nature of things here in the desert, he predicts it will be gone in 10 years, and Fremont Street will look a little more like it once did. Personally, I don't mind the looks of Slotzilla. It's design makes it a bit of a novelty. I do question it's longevity for two reasons though. First, it's almost a year behind schedule so it's already lost some of its lustre. I question whether they'll have the energy to market it and keep it running while they're so lackadaisical about getting it built in the first place. Secondly, ziplines are a dime a dozen these days. Five years ago, it was a novelty to me. Now I've been on two (both in Mexico) and within the past 3 years, 2 ziplines have been built with 15 minutes of my home. Both are higher, longer and cheaper. While I don't mean to make this a zipline bashing thread, I tend to agree with the writer that it's a novelty that's here for a relatively short time. Fremont will be a different place in 10 years and I wouldn't be surprised to see Slotzilla gone by then. There will be something newer and more unique to replace it.
