Ride the High Roller

Behold the High Roller, the world's tallest observation wheel. The 550-foot-tall attraction, which opened to the public in March, is the centerpiece of the Linq, a multimillion-dollar shopping and entertainment district created by Caesars Entertainment.

For just under $25, ticket holders receive a half-hour ride and a chance to view the Strip from a booth in one of the wheel’s 28 Italian glass cabins.

Be sure to take a spin in the evening, when the High Roller dazzles with an unforgettable multicolored light show.

Passes can be bought at www.thelinq.com.
