On Saturday, December 7, Opportunity Village hosted the 15TH annual Las Vegas Great Santa Run in Downtown Las Vegas and were able to gather 6,644 Santa participants from across the world, including 6 countries and 43 states.

 

All proceeds from the Las Vegas Great Santa Run will go towards the programs and services for adults with disabilities at Opportunity Village.

“For 15 years, we’ve been honored to host the Great Santa Run in wonderful Downtown Las Vegas in support of adults with disabilities,” said Adam K. Joseph, Vice President of Philanthropy at Opportunity Village. “This truly could not be done without the Southern Nevada community. From our vendors to volunteers to long-time partners, we’re absolutely thrilled with the support and outcome.”

 

Additional pre-race entertainment was provided by Gabriella Versace of SEXXY: The Show, Zumba by Kat and Jjohn, a Fit4Mom workout to the late George Dare’s “Run Santa Run”, DJ Mikey P, DJ Jesse Estrada, and mascots from the Vegas Golden Nights, Las Vegas Aces and Las Vegas Aviators. The starting line stage and after-party entertainment stage were hosted by Mark Shunock of Monday’s Dark and featured an impressive line-up of entertainment including Empire Records, WOW! The Vegas Spectacular, Celestia, Elvis Presley’s Heartbreak Hotel in Concert, and Kung Pow (DJ).

 

All Las Vegas Great Santa Run participants received a five-piece Santa suit with their registration and a commemorative medal upon completion. Another highlight of the event was Mena Hawkins, an inspirational young woman with cerebral palsy, not only crossing the finish line, but also raising over $7,200 for Opportunity Village in her fundraising efforts.

Evel Pie to Open on East Fremont Street in Downtown Las Vegas – New York Style Pizza – Evil Knievel Theme With Great Music and Vibes

Evel Pie to Open on East Fremont Street in
Downtown Las Vegas

Coming soon to Fremont East! Live hard, ride fast, eat pizza!

High Horse, a new hospitality collective based in Las Vegas, continues to build on the success of its first concept, The Golden Tiki, with the announcement of its new restaurant opening, called Evel Pie.

EVEL PIE FACEBOOK

EVEL PIE TWITTER

Set to open in October 2016 in the East Fremont Entertainment District, Evel Pie will pay tribute to legendary motorcycle daredevil Evel Knievel while serving delicious New York-style pizza by the slice and baked-to-order pies in a one-of-a-kind atmosphere. Operated in cooperation with Evel’s son Kelly, guests can expect classic pizza flavors and toppings alongside an unapologetic selection of cheap drinks, craft beers and favorite American backyard beers, including Hamm’s, Schlitz and Coors.

“Evel was the founding father and the catalyst of modern day extreme sports,” said High Horse co-founder and creative director Branden Powers, whose family owned a chain of pizza shops in the 70s. “He inspired a generation of kids to jump over their neighbors using makeshift ramps. His historic jump over the Caesars Palace fountains solidified him as a Vegas icon, and with the 50th anniversary of that jump coming up in 2017, we wanted to make sure Evel has a slice of Vegas history.”

Guests can expect the unexpected as soon as they walk in the doors, as they’re transported into a 1979 pizza shop with a few modern touches. Inspired by the motto “Live hard, ride fast, eat pizza,” Evel Pie’s design will be overseen by Powers and designer Lieuchi Fine, with the interior featuring pinball machines, Evel memorabilia, Schwinn Stingray bicycles, dogtown skateboards, a bronze statue of Evel himself and a few surprises for which Powers is known. Music will feature 70s rock, new wave and the roots of hip hop and punk, including Boston, Black Sabbath, Blondie, The Ramones, Beastie Boys and A Tribe Called Quest.

Evel Pie is located at 508 East Fremont Street, Las Vegas, NV 89101.

Fremont Street Experience Reveals Plans for SlotZilla, A New Attraction to Change Downtown Las Vegas

Fremont Street Experience Reveals Plans for SlotZilla,
A New Attraction to Change Downtown Las Vegas

Zoom and Zip with SlotZilla, a first-of-its kind
zipline attraction to encompass Fremont Street Experience

Fremont Street Experience revealed plans to build a new permanent zipline attraction, SlotZilla, Tuesday during a press conference at which a 6-foot model of the attraction was unveiled. The $11 million attraction will forever alter the downtown Las Vegas skyline with an 11-story slot-machine-themed takeoff platform located near the intersection of Las Vegas Boulevard and Fremont Street.

Construction on SlotZilla is expected to begin immediately after New Year’s with the attraction anticipated to open during the first half of 2013. SlotZilla will be a major new icon for downtown Las Vegas and Fremont Street Experience, a five-block entertainment district that attracts nearly 16 million annual visitors.

“We wanted to take a ride typically found in the jungle, give it amusement park features and qualities, and build it in the middle of downtown,” said Jeff Victor, president of Fremont Street Experience. “Designing a zipline to go across 1,700 feet with only a slight incline was a real challenge and required us to think outside the canopy and develop new technologies. To meet this challenge, we designed a first-of-its kind propulsion launch system and created a steeper incline that will actually take riders through the Viva Vision canopy, giving them the thrill of their lives.”

SlotZilla will be a two-level thrill ride. Riders on the upper Zoomline will take off over 100 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. Both levels deliver a ride experience unique in the world – flying above thousands of people on Fremont Street Experience and under the Viva Vision canopy, which is the world’s largest video screen.

SlotZilla, specially designed for Fremont Street Experience by Skyline based in Hawaii, features a first-of-its-kind propulsion launch system which propels the rider from the platform at speeds of 35 mph, as well as a proprietary braking system, giving riders a smooth landing to the ride. SlotZilla combines innovative technology with a dynamic themed concept to transcend a traditional zipline ride into a ground-breaking attraction for the amusement industry.

“The launched zipline will provide an incredible experience for riders and is a first for the zipline industry,” said Danny Boren, president of Skyline. “Additionally, this attraction will have increased guest capacity as a result of the integrated ride controls and automated safety features, which are exciting new developments for the zipline industry.”

The new zipline attraction is named “SlotZilla” as a tribute to the deep gaming roots of downtown Las Vegas. Through the creative direction of Contour Entertainment, the 120-foot-high takeoff tower will be transformed into the World’s Largest Slot Machine. Riders will actually “be the jackpot” and exit the slot machine through the pay table and coin tray. Las Vegas visitors will not want to miss this iconic new attraction, a thrilling experience for zipline riders and a one-of-a-kind photo op for those who prefer to keep their feet on the ground.

The takeoff platform is a multi-level, 11-story structure designed to look like a giant slot machine, complete with a pull-arm and reels. Each time riders leave the Zoomline platform, the arm will pull down, the reels will “spin” and a beacon will light up. The slot machine is adorned with two Vegas showgirls standing 37 feet tall and will include a 20-foot wide, 10-foot tall “Welcome to Fabulous Downtown Las Vegas” sign, providing a photo op for tourists.

The ride will have two landing platforms. Zipline riders will land on a platform near the intersection at 3rd Street and Casino Center. Zoomline riders will land on a platform located on top of a new Main Street Stage.

Temporary Ride to Close:
In order to build this amazing ride, the current temporary zipline Flightlinez is closed for a short time. This will enable Flightlinez to move the current temporary platforms so that the ride can remain open during construction of the permanent SlotZilla structure.

SlotZilla Opening & Ticket Sales:
SlotZilla is scheduled to open in June 2013 and Fremont Street Experience anticipates hiring approximately 100 new employees to operate the new permanent ride.

Ticket sales are projected to be $20 for the Zipline, $30 for the Zoomline or $40 for both. For those who want to avoid the lines and book a time window for their ride, advanced ticket sales and reservations will be made available.

GLOWRUN TO MAKE LAS VEGAS DEBUT COLUMBUS DAY WEEKEND












GLOWRUN TO MAKE LAS VEGAS DEBUT COLUMBUS DAY WEEKEND
7K (4-Mile) Race and Block Party to hit Downtown Las Vegas on October 7

WENDOH Media Companies and Insomniac will bring the inaugural 7K (4.3 mile) GlowRun to Downtown Las Vegas on October 7, the Sunday night of Columbus Day Weekend. More than 10,000 runners dressed in illuminated costumes are expected to hit the streets, and even more for AfterGlow, the multi-block street party held during and after the race. Aid for AIDS of Nevada (AFAN) will also participate as GlowRun’s charitable partner with a portion of registration proceeds benefitting the HIV/AIDS nonprofit, or AFAN (www.afanlv.org).

“We look forward to making GlowRun an event that will become a favorite for locals as well as draw runners from across the nation,” said Ryan Doherty co-owner of WENDOH Media. “Whether you want to walk, skip or run the race, GlowRun will guarantee a highly artistic and musical experience.”

The race will begin on Las Vegas Boulevard in front of the new Las Vegas City Hall and end on 8th Street in the heart of Fremont Street in downtown’s buzzing bar scene. The lights from the costumed runners will complement the neon lights of the casinos and the Fremont Street Experience. As runners zigzag through Downtown Las Vegas they will be energized by the cheers of onlookers, over-the-top art installations and live music throughout the course.

“We are excited to collaborate with WENDOH Media to create an event that is unique not only to the Insomniac portfolio but to the City of Las Vegas as well,” said Pasquale Rotella, founder and CEO of Insomniac, Inc. “GlowRun isn’t your typical race; it will be a festival of lights and music set to the liveliness of Downtown Las Vegas, complete with a fully costumed experience.”

The final stretch of the race will be a runway for runners to show off their elaborate costumes; and place them in the heart of the full-blown block party. Live music will fill the corridor and several food trucks will provide tasty post-race nourishment. Ample beverage, cocktail and beer stops will be placed throughout every block of AfterGlow. When most of the runners have crossed the finish line, a headlining act will hit the stage to keep the party going.

The competition will not end with the race; all participants will be eligible to win prizes for their costumes in such categories as “most creative-individual” and “most creative-group costumes.”

Participants may register now through August 1 for an early registration fee of $45 per person at www. GlowRun.com, and $55 thereafter. Businesses and groups of friends are encouraged to sign up as teams in which GlowRun will match each group member and donate to AFAN.

Teams with a minimum of six people or more will receive a discount for $5 off each entry. Once six team members have been registered, GlowRun teams are encouraged to get as many people on their team as possible. Teams will be able to add new members up until a few weeks before the race at the online registration or by sending an email to info@glowrun.com. Each team will also be announced on GlowRun’s Facebook page.

Special room rates are available for GlowRun participants at El Cortez Hotel & Casino, The Plaza Hotel & Casino and Golden Nugget Las Vegas. The promotional code for El Cortez (800-634-6703) is GLOW1012, and for Cabana Suites is GLOWCS1012; the promotional code for The Plaza (800-634-6575) is PGLOW12; and the promotional code for Golden Nugget (800-634-3454) is GSGLOWR.
