LAS VEGAS (AP) - Tourists will soon have a new way to see the lights of Las Vegas: By being spit out of the mouth of an 11-story slot machine and zinged down a five-block zip line past some of the city's oldest casinos.

Officials on Tuesday unveiled plans for a permanent zip line on the downtown Las Vegas promenade known as the Fremont Street Experience.

Las Vegas Mayor Carolyn Goodman said the SlotZilla thrill ride was destined to become an iconic city landmark.

The attraction is expected to open in June. It is an expansion of a smaller zip line that has for two years scooted families, newlyweds and Elvis impersonators beneath a metal canopy that displays an hourly light show.

That attraction was intended to be temporary when it opened in 2010
