The High Roller Observation Wheel at The LINQ Promenade in Las Vegas is currently the world’s largest ferris wheel. It offers a half hour round trip for a nominal fee that includes a birds eye view of the city and your own private bar and mixologist willing to make you as many free drinks as you can handle in that amount of time.
It’s a lot of fun and a recommended stop during your tour of the city. Getting tucked in one of the 28 orbs with a hens party captures the Vegas vibe perfectly and at 550 feet up in the air it gives you the perfect vantage point of the strip.
However the High Roller is soon going to be offering a different sort of elevated journey with yoga sessions that last two round trips.
“This is truly a first-of-its-kind experience for Las Vegas,” says Bob Morse, president of hospitality, Caesars Entertainment. “The LINQ Promenade was the first to create an outdoor venue that featured shopping, retail and entertainment all in one place. After much success, we have found a new opportunity to take the High Roller experience to the next level for our visitors.
The service will be available 7 days a week 11:30am to 5:30pm with a premium sunset option available Monday through Wednesday.
This healthier focus will be a welcome addition to Vegas, but for now I’m sticking to my cocktails.
