Las Vegas, NV (KTNV) -- The steel skeleton of the 128-foot tower for SlotZilla has been completed.

The takeoff tower of the $11.5 million ride is located just east of 4th Street and Fremont Street on the Fremont Street Experience.

The attraction will alter the downtown Las Vegas skyline with a 12-story slot-machine-themed takeoff platform.

SlotZilla will be a two-level thrill ride. Riders on the upper zoomline will take off over 110-feet above ground and riders, lying flat in a harness, will be launched to a speed that will zoom them 1,700-feet through and under the Fremont Street Experience canopy.

Riders on the lower zipline take off about 70-feet above ground and zip 850-feet to a mid-point landing platform.

SlotZilla is set to open this summer.
