The High Roller at The LINQ
Overview: At more than 550 feet (167 meters) tall, the High Roller in Vegas isn’t your county fair Ferris wheel. See for yourself during a 30-minute revolution in one of the High Roller’s 28 air-conditioned compartments. Choose from day or night rides to watch the landscape glimmer with hot sun or neon lights as you soar high above. Whether Sin City is your favorite vacation spot or you’ve traveled half the world to see the Strip for the first time, this ride above the Las Vegas skyline won’t leave you disappointed.
What to Expect: Located on the Strip, the high Roller is hard to miss at a formidable 550 feet (167 meters) tall ― beating out the London Eye as the biggest observation wheel in the world.
When you arrive, head into the waiting area where you can buy a drink to buy on board; beer wine and soft drinks are available.
Once you get in your luxurious, climate-controlled pod, sit back as you ascend into the sky. Survey the desert landscape as it shimmers day and night with neon lights and reflective buildings. During your ride, an amusing audio tour covers the history of Las Vegas, perfectly timed to point out the area’s landmarks as they appear during the rotation.
After you disembark, the adventure doesn’t have to be over. The High Roller puts you in the center of Las Vegas’ LINQ, a lively promenade featuring bars, shops and restaurants. Start by browsing the Sky Shop for some souvenirs of your time in the sky. Hungry? Hit Flour & Barley for some brick oven pizza and follow it up with a cupcake (or 2) at Sprinkles.
Whether you are a true Vegas high roller yourself and Sin City is your habitual vacation spot or you’ve traveled half the world to see the strip for the first time, you won’t be disappointed.
Upgrade your ticket to include admission to the Eiffel Tower Experience where you can ascend to the top of Vegas’ replica Eiffel Tower for access to the 360-degree observation deck at the Paris Las Vegas Hotel and Casino for even more views of Sin City landmarks like the Bellagio fountains.
About Las Vegas:
Whether you’re a high roller or a low-key lounger, Las Vegas has something to suit your vacation taste. Sample fare from top chefs and cornucopian buffets, try your luck at one of the world’s premier casinos, or take in a spectacular show. Just wandering the Strip is enough to get your heart pumping. Once you’ve had enough of the razzle-dazzle, wave hello to the toothy sea life at the Mandalay Bay Shark Reef, hike Red Rock Canyon, or visit the Neon Museum, where old signs take on new life.
