For those of you planning to road trip to Vegas for the new Magic Mike live show, beware of urinating teens soaring through the sky. On Wednesday, guests of Vegas' popular Fremont Street Experience were shocked when an unknown liquid began showering down upon them. Alas, it was not rain, but a 15-year-old boy urinating as he rode the Slotzilla zipline above.

Slotzilla is a slot machine-themed zipline. Riders can choose the zipline for $25, which is 77 feet off the ground, or the 'zoomline' at 114 feet for $45. The zipline whisks riders over the pedestrian promenade.

Cazimere Ferguson, a vacationer from Hawaii, told Fox 5 Vegas that it was "a lot of liquid coming from above us, just showering us from head to toe, our back and top of the head dripping down. And we thought it was some sort of water, maybe some drinks or beer."

The teen's parents later apologized for their son's mishap, according to Slotzilla's marketing director. It is unknown whether the boy urinated intentionally, or if it was an accident. Ziplines can be sort of scary if you're afraid of heights. We'd suggest not riding with a full bladder.
