The world's tallest Ferris wheel, the appropriately named High Roller, welcomed its first passengers on Monday in Las Vegas.
The city's sights are best seen at night, when the dazzling signs light up the Strip and the wheel itself puts on a colorful LED light show. Admission, not surprisingly, is higher in the evening.
Rides cost $24.95 from 10 a.m.-6 p.m.. The price increases to $34.95 after 6 p.m. until 2 a.m. Those who don't want to wait in line can purchase an Express Pass for $59.95.
The wheel's 28 pods can accommodate up to 40 people at a time. At full capacity, more than 1,100 can ride at the same time.
Although the High Roller bills itself as the tallest Ferris wheel on Earth, it will hold that claim for only a couple of years.
