About the High Roller
Redefining the iconic Las Vegas skyline, the High Roller is the world's tallest observation wheel. Topping out at 550 feet and measuring 520 feet in diameter, the High Roller eclipses both the London Eye and Singapore Flyer. Facing north and south (parallel to Las Vegas Boulevard), the wheel features 28 glass-enclosed cabins that unveil broad views of the famed-resort city in the 30 minutes it takes to complete one full revolution.
