LAS VEGAS (FOX5) -

The towering SlotZilla zipline project in downtown Las Vegas has been pushed back to a fall opening.

According to Fremont Street Experience spokesperson Thomas Bruny, the project is taking longer to build than anticipated. SlotZilla was slated for a summer opening.

An exact date for the opening was not yet determined.

Plans for the zipline project calls for a 12-story, slot-machine-themed, two level thrill ride situated near Las Vegas Boulevard and Fremont Street.

Riders on the upper Zoomline will take off 110 feet above the ground and, lying flat on a harness, zoom 1,700 feet through and under the Fremont Street Experience canopy.

Below the Zoomline you'll find the Zipline. Riders will take off about 70 feet above the ground and travel 850 feet to a landing platform.
