Soar 550 feet above the center of the Las Vegas Strip on the High Roller Observation Wheel, the world’s tallest observation wheel.
Now the largest observation wheel in the world, the High Roller Observation Wheel is Las Vegas’ newest attraction for all ages. It’s located at The LINQ Promenade, an outdoor shopping, dining and entertainment district. Located right in the center of the world-famous Strip, across from Caesars Palace, the wheel is easy to get to by foot, car or Las Vegas Monorail. So take a spin and see Las Vegas from a whole new view. LED light shows and 360 degree views make for a ride you don’t want to miss.
Measuring 520 feet in diameter, the High Roller eclipses both the London Eye and Singapore Flyer. Facing north and south (parallel to Las Vegas Boulevard), the wheel takes 30 minutes to complete one full revolution and features 28 glass-enclosed cabins with broad views of the famed resort city. Each spherical cabin can hold up to 40 people. Furthermore, there are benches on either side of the cabin, with plenty of floor space in between. So we imagine you’ll want to stand against the window and admire the view.
HOW TALL IS THE High Roller Observation Wheel?
From the ground to the top of the tallest cabin, The High Roller tops out at 550 feet, making it the world’s tallest observation wheel. It is 107 feet taller than the London Eye.
HOW MANY PEOPLE FIT PER CABIN?
Up to 40 people fit in each cabin of this ferris wheel Las Vegas. Therefore, the large capacity allows for guests to throw private parties in pods if booked out in advance. A bar and bartender can be set up for your ride, and full scale weddings inside a pod are also available.
WHAT ARE THE CABINS LIKE INSIDE?
Each of the 28 total cabins are spacious and easy to walk around in during the ride, with two small benches if seating is preferred. Seatbelts are not necessary, as each pod is fully enclosed in 300 square feet of floor-to-ceiling glass. So in a tech twist, each cabin features eight monitor screens hosting dynamic video and music shows coordinated with different views and touchpoints, such as reaching the highest point during the ride.
HOW LONG DOES IT TAKE TO GO AROUND?
Roughly 30 minutes, but plan on at least an hour to accommodate entering and exiting the wheel.
DOES THE WHEEL EVER STOP MOVING?
No, guests will board and depart each cabin as the wheel moves at the gentle speed of one foot per second.
ARE THERE RESTROOMS INSIDE EACH CABIN?
No, but restrooms are located in the wheel house. Therefore it is suggested riders use the facilities before boarding.
IS ONE TICKET ONLY GOOD FOR ONE ROTATION? WHAT IF I WANT TO RIDE IT AGAIN THE SAME DAY?
Individual tickets are valid for one rotation.
CAN I DRINK INSIDE THE WHEEL?
Yes. Alcoholic and non-alcoholic drinks are available for purchase in the wheel house. You may bring those on the ride, but no outside beverages are allowed. So if renting out a pod for a private event, drinks can be made while on the ride.
WHERE DO I PARK TO RIDE THE HIGH ROLLER?
Both self-parking and valet parking is available. Valet is conveniently located just a few steps away from the wheel entrance, and the self-parking lot is a quick walk behind the ferris wheel Las Vegas. Furthermore, the lot is located off Flamingo and Linq Lane, with another entrance off Koval and Winnick, east of Las Vegas Boulevard.
