At more than 550 feet (167 meters) tall, the High Roller in Vegas isn't your county fair Ferris wheel. Hop on for a 30-minute revolution in one of the High Roller's 28 air-conditioned compartments with a full bar, so you can have happy hour in your cabin. Choose from day or night rides to watch the landscape glimmer with rays of sunshine 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.
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 for the boarding area; bring your ticket and your ID to prove that you're 21 or older.
Once you get in your luxurious climate-controlled pod, sit back as you ascend into the sky. Hit the full bar for unlimited drinks during your 30-minute ride. 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 two) at Sprinkles.
Whether you are a true Vegas high roller and know Sin City like the back of your hand or this is your first time visiting the Strip, you'll find plenty to discover.
