The High Roller in Las Vegas isn’t your average Ferris wheel. And it’s not really a Ferris wheel; it’s an observation wheel — the biggest in the United States at a staggering 550-feet-tall.
Yes, you read that right: 550 feet. That’s nine feet taller than the Singapore Flyer and 107 feet taller than the London Eye.
Located at the heart of the Las Vegas Strip, the High Roller is the focal point of the $550 million open-air shopping, dining and entertainment district, The LINQ Promenade. It’s a sight that can’t be missed. Literally, you can’t miss it.
The High Roller is comprised of enclosed and air-conditioned transparent pods holding around 40 passengers each. The pods are roomy with a couple benches and the ride is smooth, not typically bothering those with a minor fear of heights.
From boarding to exit, the entire experience is about 30 minutes long (be sure to hit the bathroom before you board). Along the way, you enjoy in-cabin video and music shows while witnessing a truly unparalleled 360-degree view of Las Vegas both day and night.
