Opening Day For High Roller

(LAS VEGAS, KXNT, A.P.)– The public is getting its first chance to experience Las Vegas’ newest record breaking attraction.

The Las Vegas High Roller, the worlds tallest observation wheel, has opened for ticketed passengers.

Tourists are taking in the view from a skyline-changing observation wheel that offers a unique look at sparkling casinos and distant mountains from high above the heart of the Las Vegas Strip.

The ride takes about 30 minutes, and climbs to heights of 550-fee.

Caesars Entertainment Corp. officials christened the attraction as the world’s tallest Ferris-style wheel.

It eclipses the 541-foot Singapore Flyer and the nearly-443-foot London Eye.

The High Roller is part of the $550 million LINQ development at the heart of the glittery Strip resort corridor.

It has 28 glass-enclosed, air-conditioned gondolas that can each hold up to 40 people.

Tickets are $24.95 during the day and $34.95 at night.
