The sky is the limit in Las Vegas, the city that’s constantly reinventing itself. They look at what visitors enjoy at other tourist hotspots around the world and try to exceed that. And that’s exactly what they did with the High Roller Ferris Wheel. The 550-foot-tall High Roller at The LINQ’s outdoor shopping, dining and entertainment promenade offers the most stunning views over the Las Vegas Strip.

The High Roller has 28 air-conditioned cabines. Floor-to-ceiling glass provides the best possible views and every cabin holds a maximum of 40 passengers. There are several benches and each cabin features eight monitor screens hosting video and music shows. Since the wheel moves at a speed of just one foot per second passengers can enter and leave the pods without having to stop the High Roller. A ride on the High Roller takes about 30 minutes but make sure you have an hour to spare. You might have to wait a short while to get in. There are no restrooms in the cabins so make sure to use the restrooms located inside the wheel house before boarding.

The cabins offer a 360 degree view of the Strip, the Las Vegas valley and the surrounding mountains. The southwest corner is said to offer the best views (look right when you enter the cabin) at the highest point.
