Zip Wire Over Colourful Fremont Street
In downtown Vegas, away from the main strip with all its dazzling lights and its mega hotels you'll find the fabulous Fremont Street, which is equally as crazy and full of just as much bling. There's the usual array of bars, restaurants and enormous casinos to choose from, but Fremont Street takes things to a whole new level with its neon bright ceilings and it's very own zip wire meaning you can literally fly above Sin City and admire everything from way up high!
