Las Vegas High Roller Wheel Trip Report

Earlier this year, while in Las Vegas, I got a wonderful opportunity to take a ride on the High Roller Wheel and to check out the new Linq complex.

 

At 550 feet tall, the High Roller is hard to miss on the Las Vegas skyline. The wheel is a total of 520 feet tall, making it the Worlds LARGEST Ferris Wheel!

Tickets to ride cost $24 USD. If you like ferris wheels.. then that is money well spent!

But…! Before riding make sure to take a stop at the Cup Cake ATM, located at Sprinkles in the Linq!DSC_0734

 

Ah, thats better. Now, take your cup cake and go jump in line!

After walking through a queue, you will be greeted by a bar! Yay for drinks!

You are then taken into a giant pre-show theater, where a film about Las Vegas is made! FEATURING ELVIS MUSIC

After watching the pre-show, the host walks you into the loading area. The wheel DOES NOT stop moving, so you have to get it fast! (Not really, the wheel goes quite slow) This photo shows the load below to the left side

And then… after that, its over 🙁

I hope you enjoyed this post! Be sure to check back soon for another Las Vegas adventure!
