The High Roller in Las Vegas isn't your average Ferris wheel. In fact, there's nothing average about it.
Located at the heart of the Las Vegas Strip, the High Roller is the focal point of the $550 million open-air retail, dining and entertainment district, The Linq. It's the tallest observation wheel in the world 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.
The High Roller is comprised of 28 enclosed and air-conditioned transparent pods holding 40 passengers each. The ride itself is 30 minutes long and can take approximately 2,200 passengers in an hour. Along the way, you enjoy in-cabin video and music shows while witnessing a truly unparalleled 360-degree view of the Las Vegas valley.
The High Roller is accessible from The Linq via multiple entrances, including a back porte cochère off of Audrie Street. The Las Vegas Monorail, meanwhile, cruises right in front of the High Roller with convenient stops at both the Flamingo and The Quad.
To board the High Roller, guests pass through a five-story building, which will include interactive elements on the first floor and a bar/lounge on the second. Boarding will take place on the third floor while the building’s fifth floor is a hospitality floor with outdoor patios, which can be reserved for catered private parties of up to 500 people.
Just as the High Roller has transformed the Las Vegas skyline, a ride inside it may transform you; After a spin on this wheel, your view of Vegas will likely never be the same.
