The Las Vegas Highroller is part of the LINQ promenade, a new pedestrian zone between the Hotel LINQ and the Hotel Flamingo.

This new promenade offers everything from small boutiques, great bars, and restaurants, to live music and nightlife, everything Las Vegas holidaymakers want.

The atmosphere is similar to that on the strip, but because it is located between two hotels, it is a bit quieter and you feel like you are in a different place.

The LINQ open air promenade offer lots of shops!

The Las Vegas High Roller is at the end of this boardwalk and is really a technical masterpiece. It is 167 meters high and is currently the tallest Ferris wheel in the world. At night it is brightly lit with more than 2,000 LED lights.

The bike has 28 cabins in which 40 guests can be accommodated. Each cabin has a diameter of over 6 meters and consists of glass windows from floor to ceiling. This gives you an incredible view of the whole city of Las Vegas.

The cabins turn imperceptibly during the journey, which takes 30 minutes and is accompanied by music. You can move freely or sit down during the entire journey.

Unfortunately, photography doesn’t work so well because it reflects a lot. This is probably because the cabins are curved outwards, but that is not so important. It’s better to just enjoy the ride and the unique view than to take pictures.

It is a great experience to admire the sunset from the Las Vegas high roller and watch the sun go down behind the mountains.

The view at night is impressive and you can see the strip in all its glory. The fountains from the Hotel Bellagio, which is in the immediate vicinity, are particularly beautiful from up there.

For a surcharge you can book a drink plate with a bartender, who will then provide you with delicious drinks.
