Almost Ready To Roll

LAS VEGAS (KXNT/AP) — Crews have attached the final cabin to a giant observation wheel on the Las Vegas Strip, although it’s not open for business just yet.

The milestone for the Las Vegas High Roller happened Tuesday. Officials with Caesars Entertainment say workers still need to add lighting and communications systems, complete the platform structure and test the wheel before it can welcome passengers.

The 550-foot High Roller is the world’s tallest observation wheel and features spherical glass pods that can hold up to 40 people each. The ride is located in Caesars’ new, $550 million LINQ development.
