Record Breaking Ferris Wheel Opens On Vegas Strip
The Las Vegas Strip is an ever-changing marvel, continuously adding new additions where space was seemingly unavailable. The one constant in all of the construction is that each new feature pushes the limits of grandiosity. The High Roller, a world record breaking 550 foot tall observation wheel, certainly keeps that tradition alive. Each transparent cart can hold as many as 40 people, is air conditioned, and allows for a 360 degree view of the Vegas skyline for the duration of the 30 minute ride.
The High Roller is but the focal point of an overall larger development call The Linq. The outdoor project is set to be released in phases, and will offer a combination of retail, dining and entertainment. Some of the first tenants opened for business in December of 2013, and The High Roller is scheduled to open March, 2014. Eventually, 30 to 40 stores and eateries will occupy the area, along with a bowling alley and music venue.
The High Roller is certain to become a dominant spectacle on the Vegas strip when it opens. Demand will undoubtedly be high but reservations will be available through advanced ticketing purchase for designated times. Though ticket prices have not yet been determined, the price tag will help to recoup the costs of the $550 million dollar Linq development.
