Vegas About To Get Even More Thrilling (Fingers Crossed)

March 24, 2014 at 4:56 PM | by | ()

Three new thrill attractions all open by May (or sooner)? Maybe.

If the rumor mill is correct, The High Roller, VooDoo Zip Line and Slotzilla might all debut within the next few weeks.

We're hearing lots of chatter that The High Roller could debut this week or next. Rumor has it that the plan is to have the observation wheel up and running in time for the ACM two-day concert event due to happen right behind The High Roller on newly created festival grounds April 4-5. VegasChatter friend @anthonybwilson on Twitter was at The Linq (where you'll find The High Roller) today and reports that the official word is that testing is still underway.

A short drive away at Rio, VooDoo Zip Line now has an actual line between the hotel's towers. Vegas Rover on Facebook reports sources as saying the sit-down attraction could take off as soon as this weekend. Permits have (finally) been officially approved, however, testing has yet to be completed so this weekend is likely a bit too optimistic.

And, in Downtown Vegas, a rumor that Slotzilla was delayed until at least April still seems to be holding true. A new round of hiring just took place March 21-22. While an opening date still isn't being cited, the Slotzilla Facebook page is proclaiming that the wait is almost over.

Hoping for High Roller this week!

We fly in this Wednesday (03/26) night and we're staying until next Tuesday (03/31) night. I'd love it if we could get the chance to take a ride on the High Roller!


Now that we got the High Roller opening in a couple of weeks, does anybody know if the Tilted Kilt is going into the Linq?? I haven't heard anything in the last 6 months and pretty much everything or will be opening by the end of April. If they are still going in, have they started construction yet?  


Yes, they're still going in (a sign is already up), but I've yet to hear a peep about an opening timeline.

Wait up!

New information coming on Tilted Kilt!
