Ever dreamed of being spat out of a slot machine at 38mph? Thought not. Even so, Las Vegas' new thrill ride will definitely be worth checking out when it opens this spring.

Riders braving Sin City's new 244-metre Slotzilla zip line will start their adventure 36 metres above ground level, shooting out of a super-sized slot machine towering over Fremont Street. But that's not all - in a nod to Las Vegas' penchant for anything over the top, as each rider pops out, the slot machine's arm will drop down and the wheels will spin. The ride is thought to be the city's most expensive, having cost around £7 million to build.

I've ridden some of the best coasters in the world but the best and most thrilling is the wild mouse at Blackpool pleasure beach.

Who fact checks these articles?
Hades 360 is not the first wooden looping coaster, Son Of Beast at Kings Island was the first.
Admittedly, the loop was removed in 2006/2007 and is now no longer operating, but it was the first.
