The world’s tallest Ferris wheel opened on the Las Vegas Strip on March 31, 2014. Standing at 550 foot tall, the Ferris wheel named “High Roller” sports a 520-foot diameter giant wheel and is taller than the previous record holder, the Singapore Flyer by 9 feet and almost 100 foot tall than the famous London Eye. The wheel is located across from Caesars Palace, adjacent to Flamingo Las Vegas and The Quad Resort & Casino.

High Roller has 28 glass enclosed cabins that can fit up to 40 people each. Moving at a confortable speed of 1 foot per second, the wheel takes 30 minutes to make one complete rotation during which riders can take in the unparalleled view of the Las Vegas Strip and surrounding valley. The ride also includes a dynamic video and music show that fades away seamlessly as the wheel ascends to showcase the most impressive views of the Las Vegas valley. At night, 2,000 LED lights will illuminate the giant wheel and can be programmed to display a single solid color, or different colored patterns during holidays  and special events.
