How The Las Vegas High Roller Came To Life

LINQ High Roller Ferris Wheel

If you’ve visited Las Vegas recently, you probably saw a GIANT Ferris wheel being erected on the Las Vegas Strip. It’s called the High Roller, and it’s the world tallest observation wheel, nine feet taller than the 541-foot Singapore Flyer. After nearly three years of planning and construction, it opened to the public last week.

The High Roller is truly an engineering feat, and the following video shows how the 28 cabins for this massive ride (each weighing 15 tons) made their way to The Strip’s newest playground The LINQ, from their build site 10 miles away. While 10 miles might not sound like a far trek, as you’ll see in the video below, the transport of these cabins took intense planning, scheduling, and teamwork.

I can’t wait to get back out to Las Vegas, so I can go for a ride in the High Roller! Who else is with me??
