The High Roller at the LINQ is a Ferris wheel that offers some of the best views of the Las Vegas Strip. This dynamic attraction is conveniently located near two Las Vegas Monorail stations.
History and Facts
Designed by Arup Engineering, the High Roller at the LINQ opened to the public in the spring of 2014. Having a diameter of 520 feet and height of 550 feet, this landmark has been the tallest Ferris wheel in the world. By comparison, the historic London Eye is 107 feet shorter than this installation at the LINQ Hotel.
Having a floor space of 225 sq feet, each of the 28 cabins accommodates up to 40 passengers. On a busy day, this attraction takes just more than 1,100 riders during a single session. After sunset, more than 2,000 LED lights transform this Ferris wheel into a dazzling fixture on the east side of the Las Vegas Strip.
Rides and Amenities
It takes the High Roller approximately half an hour to make a single revolution. As you reach the top of the wheel, you’ll enjoy panoramic views of major resorts and other properties on the Las Vegas Strip. If you’d like to host a private party, reserve the Open Bar in the Sky package. This bundle includes a personal bartender and club-style furniture.
After the ride, you could buy some memorable photographs at the Total Snapshot stand. Additionally, a souvenir shop is conveniently located near the wheel’s exit. Although the ride typically lasts 30 minutes, you should be prepared to spend at least 60 minutes for the entire experience due to standard boarding procedures and queues.
Location and Transportation
The High Roller is located within walking distance of the Las Vegas Monorail Harrah’s & LINQ and Flamingo & Caesars Place stations. Designated for the neighboring hotels and other venues, multiple outdoor parking lots are accessible just east of this iconic Ferris wheel.
Running along East Flamingo Road, the 202 RTC bus also drops off passengers near this iconic attraction on the Strip. You can also ride the 119 RTC bus that makes multiple stops on Koval Lane, which carries northbound and southbound traffic just one block away from the landmark.
