Is Work Underway on The Linq’s Observation Wheel?

Every time you pass by the construction area for The Linq, the massive mid-Strip development project by Caesars Entertainment, you see something new.

Yesterday, we photographed what could very well could be the Linq’s High Roller observation wheel’s footing.

If this blog was going to build a giant wheel, this is what we'd do first.

Could this blog “confirm” these are anchoring cables for the High Roller? Probably. Are we going to “exert” the “effort” required to do that on a “weekend”? Are you familiar with this blog at all? Moving on.

You go, The Linq. Even if we don't relish including your "The" all the time.

The High Roller observation wheel (like a Ferris wheel, but gargantuaner, which may or may not be a real word) will be 550 feet tall, making it the world’s tallest.

The world’s second-tallest Ferris wheel, at 541 feet, is the Singapore Flyer. We’re not entirely sure where the Singapore Flyer is located, but we know it’s not in Las Vegas. We are a blog, not a geographer.
