High Roller – Vegas Ferris Wheel Guide

Want to see Vegas from a different perspective?

Then why not take a ride on the High Roller? Billed as the “world’s tallest observation wheel”, the High Roller Ferris Wheel is 520 feet in diameter and rises 550 feet above the heart of the Las Vegas Strip, offering unquestionably the best views of the entire Las Vegas valley.

Ranked at number four on TripAdvisor’s list of Top Attractions in Las Vegas, a ride on the High Roller is definitely on any must-do list for a trip to Sin City.

The High Roller opened to the public on March 31, 2014 and sports 28 air-conditioned, 40-person cabins that can support a total capacity of 1120 passengers. The High Roller offers 360-degree views of the Strip and beyond during the thirty-minute ride.

High Roller Times

The High Roller is open daily from 11:30 AM – 2 AM and is located in the heart of the LINQ Promenade, an open-air entertainment, retail, and dining district that is situated in the heart of the Strip between the LINQ and Flamingo resorts and across from Caesars Palace.

High Roller Happy Hour

For an extra entertaining experience, buy a ticket to the Happy Half Hour. The Happy Half Hour includes a thirty-minute rotation with an in-cabin open bar and dedicated bartender.

The Happy Half Hour is available daily from 12PM to 1AM. Guests must be 21 and over to ride in a bar cabin.

Vegas High Roller Tips and Info

Both alcoholic and non-alcoholic drinks are available for purchase in the wheel house. These may be brought on the High Roller, but outside beverages are not allowed.

A full revolution of the High Roller takes about a half hour, but allow extra time for standing in line and waiting to enter and exit the ride.

To experience the full “wow” factor, sunset and after dark are the best times to ride.

Be sure to visit Sky Shop, the High Roller gift shop, which is located at the base of the wheel. Memorialize your experience with souvenirs that include T-shirts, keychains, postcards, snow globes, cups, and even miniature High Rollers. Sky Shop also offers souvenirs for FLY LINQ, the zip line at the LINQ. Sky Shop is open daily from 10AM – 2:30AM.

Like all Caesars properties, you have to pay to park at the LINQ. The first hour is free, with 1-2 hours $9, 2-4 hours $12, and 4-24 hours $15. Oversize parking in the LINQ surface lot is $30. Valet parking fees start at $15 for up to two hours, 2-4 hours $20, and 4-24 hours is $24.

Ride the Las Vegas Monorail and exit at the Harrah’s/LINQ Station for access to the High Roller at the LINQ Promenade, as well as The LINQ Hotel and Casino and Harrah’s Las Vegas.

At 550 feet, Las Vegas’s High Roller is guaranteed to remain the tallest Ferris wheel in the world until Dubai’s 689-foot observation wheel, AIN Dubai, opens in 2020 to coincide with Expo 2020 Dubai. With breathtaking 360-degree views of the Las Vegas Strip and beyond, the High Roller is a can’t-miss experience for your trip to Sin City.
