Visitors eagerly anticipating the opening of Las Vegas’ most buzzworthy new attraction won’t have to wait any longer. The first riders are welcome to board the High Roller beginning today at 1 p.m. Tickets are now on sale here online as well as at the stunning LINQ district, and range from $24.95 for a daytime ride and $34.95 for nighttime. Multiple ticket packages are available including one and three-day flex passes for multiple rides, and the 40-person cabins can be rented out for private parties (complete with catering and a bartender!) as well.
An official christening event will be held at 11:30 a.m today to commemorating the inaugural rides and the completion of the wheel, which first broke ground in February 2012.
Ready to ride? The 30-minute experience is truly breathtaking, with a bird’s-eye view as it turns, showcasing a 360-degree view and aerial Strip scenes. Nervous about being 550 feet up? Don’t worry—the world’s tallest observation wheel only moves at one foot per second, so even those wary of heights will enjoy the smooth ride. The High Roller is open 365 days per year and just like Las Vegas, it never stops moving.
As Las Vegas’ newest sparkling attraction, the High Roller and The LINQ are just steps away from Strip-center action. Just across the street from Caesars Palace, it’s adjacent to Flamingo Las Vegas and The Quad resorts. It’s situated between two monorail stops, but also features plenty of self parking and a valet next to the ticket office.
