High Roller

At 550 feet high, the High Roller in the tallest panoramic Ferris wheel in the world, beating the famous London Eye (443 ft), Star of Nanchang (525 ft), and the Singapore Flyer (541 ft).

Owned by Caesars Entertainment, The High Roller has transformed into the main attraction of The Linq, a huge entertainment and commercial zone right in the heart of the Strip, across from Caesars Palace.

Construction

Construction of the High Roller started in 2011 and finished in March in 2014. It is composed of 28 cabins, each with a capacity for 40 people. When night falls, more than 2000 lights illuminate each cabin.

The total cost of the project has been more than 550 million dollars.

The ride

The duration of a complete rotation on the High Roller is 30 minutes. During this time, you will enjoy the magnitude of Las Vegas spread out before your eyes. On the onboard screens, you will be able to see videos and information about both the big wheel and the city.

Big Wheel, or Helicopter?

Although the wheel looks very promising, its location means that the views may not be quite as spectacular as you would expect. Furthermore, the high price tag makes the helicopter ride seem like a better deal.

In our opinion, the best views on the Strip (and free at certain times), are obtained from the terraces of Mix, a restaurant and lounge bar in the Delano hotel, and Voodoo Nightclub in the Rio Hotel.
