Nothing has redefined the iconic Las Vegas skyline more prominently than the High Roller, opening in 2014. Topping 550 feet to make it the largest observation wheel in the world, the epic High Roller is the crown jewel of The LINQ. With 28 spherical, glass-enclosed cabins, passengers are in for unparalleled views of Las Vegas in each full 30 minute rotation.
Weighing in at 44,000 pounds, each stylish, modern-styled cabin hold up to 40 people. Tickets can be bought individually or in groups. Once a ticket is bought, riders are thrust into an immersive journey from start to finish that begins with its pre-ride experience, through the wheel house with its own lounge. Whether renting out a cabin for wedding or private party, or going solo, each one features dynamic music and video shows that seamlessly fade in and out as riders take in the 360-degree sights.
Parallel to Las Vegas Boulevard, the massive wheel measures 520 feet in diameter, eclipsing both the London Eye and Singapore Flyer. With more than 2,000 LED lights, it serves as a sparkling focal point for the district. Visitors can enjoy a full day and night’s worth of activities and venues at The LINQ before or after sky-high sightseeing.
Serving as a pinnacle example of how a treasured attraction such as an observation wheel can be modernized and Vegas-ized, the High Roller and accompanying LINQ district fill the need for curated, social and experiential attractions. These offerings maintain Las Vegas’s position as a forward-thinking destination offering the most exciting, full scale range of entertainment, dining, retail and nightlife offerings in the world.
