Despite appearances, Flightlinez was always a temporary set-up. How temporary? Well it's already almost vanished from Fremont Street. The wires are down and the loading area is being pulled apart. The company's website says to check back on December 3rd for details of when they will re-open. We'd like to report this is a temporary measure. Flightlinez says so, but it also looks it would take a lot of work to get the set-up back up and running.
Our un-scientific reading between the lines also suggests there might be some bad blood between Flightlinez and the Fremont Street Experience, so we'll keep an eye on that too. Slotzilla isn't scheduled to open until June of next year and we feel sad for visitors who might miss out on a Fremont zipline experience between now and then. We'll be sure to let you know when Flightlinez is fully functional and we heartily recommend you try it out. It's quick, relatively cheap and you won't forget it. But, boy, just wait till Slotzilla takes over.
11.30 Update: Thanks to VegasChatter fan David S. who let us know that Flightlinez is being reassembled about "20-30 feet down Fremont to allow for the new construction." We'll let you know when visitors are zipping on by again. And, for how long.
