Owner description: 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 takes 30 minutes to complete one full revolution and features 28 glass-enclosed cabins with broad views of Las Vegas and the Strip. Each spherical cabin can hold up to 40 people, with benches on either side of the cabin and plenty of floor space in between-but we imagine you'll want to stand and admire the view. Sight-seeing isn't all that the High Roller has to offer. Take in the best views of Las Vegas from inside a High Roller Happy Half Hour cabin. Your ticket includes one 30-minute ride and an open bar inside the cabin! Allow your body and mind to soar 550 feet in the sky above the Las Vegas Strip in a unique and personalized yoga session with a professional instructor. Or experience a one-of-a-kind sky high chocolate tasting experience paired with your choice of wine!

Half of our group chickened out of this ride, leaving 6 of us to experience this wonder. We treated ourselves to souvenir drinks in the bar on our way up to the platform, which were delicious. The souvenir cup is an adorable little replica of the cabin you ride in, and we loved them.

The ride was much slower than I had anticipated, which was great actually, because a slow ascent makes it much less scary for those of us afraid of heights. As someone who doesn't care for ferris wheels, I was a little nervous about the High Roller, but there's no rocking and it all feels very secure. The cabin was roomy and had seats available, which we were way too excited to sit in.

The view starts out pretty good as you board from a decent height already, but as you climb over the city, the view just gets more and more spectacular from every direction. Vegas truly is a beautiful town in so many ways.

The ride takes 30 minutes all told, so if you time it right you can catch a Bellagio fountain show from the top, and even without music behind it, it's a pretty cool way to see it.

They also have TVs in the cabins that share interesting history and facts about Vegas. We love to learn about the history of the cities we visit, so that was a pleasant surprise as well.

If you're afraid to try this ride out, I urge you to conquer your fear and go for it. It's a truly breathtaking experience.

Simply Gorgeous!!! The view at night is particularly wonderful. Extremely smooth ride of about 30 minutes and spent only about 20 waiting to board.

Probably not worth the visit if you do the Eiffel Tower and stay anywhere facing onto the strip.

Still, not that expensive and only takes 30mins.

This was one of the most reasonably-priced things we found to do on the Strip. We saw the "giant ferris-wheel pod thing" while out walking but had no idea what it was. It turns so slowly you can't tell from the street that it's turning. It moves 1 foot in altitude per 5 seconds, if I remember correctly.

Little to no wait to get on. We bought tickets online for $19.95 each. We went around 11am and there were only 2 other people in our pod that holds 40, so we had tons of room and could walk around.

The volume could be a bit louder on the video history that plays, but it was interesting. And the views are fantastic.

Recommended.

What a fun thing to do! My friends and I did the earlier option as it is cheaper. It was around $35USD and this was the all you can drink option. The only issue with this is that you will be put in with other people for the drinking carriage because they do not have it for every single carriage. The other option is that you can pay a cheaper price but pay for drinks separate to have your own carriage.

It was really nice to see the strip from a birds eye view. I have done this before at night before the all you can drink option was available and you could see the fountains of Bellagio from up high.
