High Roller, Las Vegas

4.5
Towering over 158 m (520 ft) above the Las Vegas Strip stands High Roller. As one of the world’s tallest observation wheels, it offers one of the most impressive views of the city. A ride in one of the air-conditioned pods takes around 30 minutes and is accompanied by audio commentary. You also have the opportunity to include an open bar inside your cabin. Rides during the day are considerably cheaper. However, riding at night is very popular as passengers can enjoy a 360-degree panorama of the city lights.

  • My wife is on a scooter and the gondola easily accommodated her. She rolled right on after they stopped and made it extremely easy to get on & off. I am extremely afraid of heights, but this wheel goe...  more »
  • We rode the High Roller during the afternoon, and chose the bar option. Our bartender was very nice, and kept the drinks going! The view is spectacular! A great experience!  more »
  • Nice views but I am not fond of heights so if you're afraid of heights this may not be for you, it's slow moving and when you get to the top you are definitely high up!  more »

  • This is pretty cool. It moves very slowly and gives you great views of Las Vegas. We were lucky enough to get a seat with a bar in it so we enjoyed some good drinks while there. I've now down the high roller twice. Once during the day and once during the night. Very cool and I highly recommend this to anyone. More cities need these rides. Very cool and it's located in a great area (the Linq) outdoor mall.
  • Absolutely recommend this ride on the strip. It was extremely fun as me and 3 others got into the open bar pod which was an incredible deal. I believe it was only ~$35 which included top shelf liquor,beers, etc... Not sure what one person who reviewed previously was talking about having time for only 1 drink. Between shots and mixed drinks, I was able to get thru 10 total plus 1 to go as the ride stopped. It was incredibly fun. I'm assuming our time here was better as we went during the week and during the day which is probably the least busy. We had maybe 20 ppl total in our car. Probably the best bang for your buck in Vegas if u wanna drink.
  • We had the open bar option which was nice but I felt the capsule was a touch too crowded to allow everyone to truly enjoy themselves. The bartender was fun and the views were great, so that made up for it.
  • Best time to do this is at night cause then you get a great view of the whole of the Strip at Vegas. Be sure check with your hotel for coupons. It was a wonderful experience you barely feel any movements, they have a photo session which you pay for if interested.
  • I have been on the High Roller twice and both times were a blast. I would warn against going during any drinking event though, there are no restrooms on the ride, and it can become very uncomfortable for almost 30 minutes! Great views all around. I have only been up at night, may try to go during the day next time.

Where to stay in Las Vegas

Most Las Vegas hotels increase their room rates on the weekends, so if you have a flexible schedule, avoid Fridays and Saturdays and take advantage of package deals that include shows, meals, and gambling coupons. Remember also that if you stay at any one of the lively casino hotels, you may not be able to get a good night's sleep for the duration of your trip. If you come to Vegas to stay but not necessarily play, try one of the non-gaming hotels or explore the quieter areas surrounding the city.
