What We’re Watching!
Vegas Videos You’ll Enjoy
- Las Vegas Zip Line, SlotZilla, Now Boasts Zoomline – The upper zip line of Slotzilla at the Fremont Street Experience is now open. You start from 114 feet in the air and zoom Superman-style the length of 5 football fields. Opinions are mixed. The attraction will draw more people to downtown, but has ruined the iconic sightlines up and down Fremont Street.
- Coverage Of The Opening Of The New Aladdin (Now Planet Hollywood) – This newscast from the late 90’s had live coverage of the final preparations to open the “New” Aladdin as well as a look back at the implosion of the old property.
- Container Park (Downtown Las Vegas) – Late last year, a new retail/entertainment complex opened in Las Vegas called Container Park. This is a project of Zappos’ Tony Hsieh’s “Downtown Project”. With stores and eateries housed in former shipping containers, the complex is home to a number of new entrepreneurs, artists and musicians. Getting to it is easy! It is right on Fremont Street. Walk east until you hit the end of the canopy. It is three more short blocks on your right. (You can’t miss it)!
