World's largest Ferris wheel opens in Vegas

High Roller is a 167.6 m tall, 160 m diameter giant Ferris wheel on the Las Vegas Strip in Paradise, Nevada. It is the world's tallest observation wheel, 2.7 m taller than the 165 m Singapore Flyer, which held the record for the world's tallest observation wheel from 2008 until 2014. After nearly three years of planning and construction it opened to the public on March 31, 2014.

High Roller was announced in August 2011 as the centerpiece of Caesars Entertainment Corporation's $550 million The LINQ. Arup Engineering, which previously worked on the Singapore Flyer, is responsible for High Roller's structural plan.

Ride on this panoramic wheel lasts for 30 minutes, with music and video presentation, which are there to give you the opportunity to enjoy yourself before being charmed by the amazing city view. This wheel is 30 meters taller from the famous London eye and boasts 28 glass closed cabins, which can accommodate up to 40 persons.

This wheel won’t be the highest one in the world for long. Many world projects are now competing in that fields, while two of them are on the top of the list. The one on Staten Island, or the New York Eye, which is supposed to be open in 2016 will be 192 meters tall, while the Dubai Eye project will be 210 meters tall.

This Las Vegas Ferris Wheel will be open every day and it will give you the opportunity to create magical ever lasting memories every single day.

Ticket pricing varies from $24.95 (day time rides) to $34.95 (night time). One day and three day flex passes are also available for $44.95 and $54.95. The flex pass allows the holder to ride once at any time of the day for a three day period. An Express Pass for $59.95 allows the holder to skip the line and ride any time. A full rotation of the wheel takes 30 minutes.
