The High Roller at The Linq Promenade

The Linq promenade is an open-air retail, dining, and entertainment district on the Las Vegas Strip. A prominent attraction of district is the 550-tall High Roller that was opened by Caesars Entertainment in 2014. It is the world’s highest observation wheel and gives a fantastic 360-degree view of Vegas.las vegas the linq promenadethe linq at las vegasbest of las vegasLocated adjacent to the Flamingo hotel and casino, The Linq is hard to pass by. We spent a few hours window shopping there. It is also close to Bally’s hotel where we were put up. In fact, our hotel room gave us a good view of the Ferris wheel. We could see the 2,000 LEDs glow late into the night on the wheel! Spellbound by its beauty and statistics, we booked a ride one night to experience its beauty from inside and also of Vegas from high above.las vegas strip the linq ferris wheelNow imagine being in one of the 28 sturdy cabins that adorn the high roller and being taken on a slow ride of 30 minutes – you have enough time to enjoy the interiors (equipped with eight flat-screen televisions and an iPod dock) or just enjoy the nightlife of Vegas through the glass. You could even get lucky with seeing the show of Bellagio Fountains from above (just a couple of blocks from there) if timing is right. I had enough time to even click some pictures. Though there were quite a few reflections from lighting all around (even of the LEDs on the wheel) and even the outer glass was thick, I was able to get a few decent shots.las vegas at nightthe strip las vegasIf you are looking to buy tickets for the high roller, check various options on the Internet as you might get lucky with a deal, else you can directly buy on Caesars official site here.

  1. Amazing shots from below and above. You did well too avoid the reflection as you said, and it looked like such a clear Las Vegas night. I’m not good with heights but with views like this, I would certainly give the wheel a go 🙂

  2. The shots from inside the ferris wheel are mindblowing! One thing I never understood. I have seen the streets in TV shows like Friends, HIMYM etc. How do they maintain it so well? I can’t even spot mud or sand there. :O

    1. In fact, i thought about the same during our trip to India in Oct/Nov. The reason is they landscape the roadsides here. Even if there is a huge open area (where you have loose sand), they would make sure it doesn’t blow into peoples’ faces.
