Will Caesars impress with Las Vegas High Roller?

Story highlights

  • Las Vegas is the latest city to add a Ferris wheel to its entertainment options
  • The SkyView Atlanta Ferris Wheel has 42 climate-controlled observation cabins

The 550-foot-tall High Roller has finally opened on the Las Vegas Strip.

The High Roller Ferris wheel is part of "the LINQ," a Caesars Entertainment-created shopping and entertainment district. The wheel received its operating license on Friday.

Riders will get a 30-minute ride and view of the city in one of two booths in each of the wheel's 28 Italian glass cabins, each 44,000 pounds in weight. Each cabin holds up to 40 people, totally 1,120 people at capacity.

Ticket prices range from $24.95 for a standard day ticket to $59.95 for the express that allows you to board anytime without waiting in line.
