The High Roller, Las Vegas, NV

This afternoon I went on the High Roller, which is the world's tallest observation wheel.

The High Roller is a 550-foot tall giant ferris wheel. The wheel began construction in 2011 and opened in March 2014. The High Roller features 28 spherical passenger cabins which can accommodate up to 40 passengers each and is illuminated with dynamic multicolored LED lights nightly.

It cost $25 for the 30 minute ride.  You can spend an extra $5 and go in the happy hour cabin where you can drink all you want (I passed).

There were just three of us in our cabin.

And we're off!

The views were great!

Almost to the top!

Looking at the one ahead of us

And we've reached the top ... 550 feet!


And we're on our way back down ...

Looking up at the one behind us

The cabins don't stop ... you get on as it's moving.  There is a net underneath in case you misstep.

It was fun and a great way to see the city.

Update:  At night!
