The High Roller is a popular Vegas attraction as it is the largest observation wheel in the world, boasting a diameter of 520 feet and sitting at 550 feet tall.
The giant Ferris wheel, which first opened in 2014, is located at the heart of the Las Vegas Strip at the LINQ Promenade.

The observation wheel is an attention-grabbing structure on the Strip – one that is hard to miss due to its sheer size. A casual glance at the wheel in the distance and you are easily drawn to The LINQ, which is an entertainment and shopping district with millions of visitors each year.
The wheel travels at one foot per second, which is a slow pace that allows you to soak in the marvelous views in an unrushed manner. One complete revolution of the wheel takes half an hour, probably the most relaxing half hour you will spend on the Strip. A closer look at the wheel and you will realize that the cabins are located outside the rim for seamless viewing, providing the sense of floating.
The dramatic views of the glamorous Las Vegas landscape, with the circle of mountains that surround, is a sight to behold. Listen to learn more about the city from the recorded narration and monitors that display information about the famous city.
At night, the High Roller cabins come alive, perhaps to reflect the glitz with which Vegas has long been associated with. There is no better time to marvel at the neon-lit sights of the city than at dusk. Once the sun sets, Las Vegas is bathed in an amazing glow that matches its pulsating energy. For such a vivid experience, the higher cost of the night ride is well worth it.
The High Roller is suitable for people of all ages.
