165 meters high, the equivalent of a 55-storey building, more than fifteen hundred multicolored LED lights bring the playful effect to Las Vegas’ grandiose Ferris wheel, the High Roller. Located between The Linq and Flamingo hotels on the Strip, this Vegas novelty, which opened to the public on March 31, 2014, brings modernity and sophistication to its new cabins.
Forget the idea you had in the past of those giant wheels in old parks, which held a maximum of four people on very uncomfortable benches, here the goal is to provide you with pleasant space, while still having the privilege of contemplating unforgettable scenery.
Revamping the concept of this attraction, the development surprises with its comfort and capacity. Carrying up to 1,120 people at a time, in 28 spacious cabins with 40 crew members in each niche, the intention is to promote a real party in the air, with 360-degree views of the bustling Las Vegas Boulevard.
In your 30 minutes of a complete tour, you can not only book a private cabin for you and your friends, but also hire an open bar service, for a totally “private” celebration. Some people even book weddings in the heights, with champagne and everything, fun isn’t it? Want an even bigger party? No problem! The environment also has a hospitality area with outdoor spaces that can be reserved for private parties for up to 500 guests.
