LAS VEGAS (March 2019) – Towering at 550 feet in the air, High Roller is the iconic engineering marvel that forever changed the Las Vegas skyline. On Sunday, March 31, High Roller at The LINQ Promenade, the world’s tallest observation wheel celebrates its fifth birthday.
To celebrate, birthday special offers will begin on Friday, March 29 and will be available until the end of April.
IN THE BEGINNING
Las Vegas is a place of superlatives, home to some of the brightest lights and largest hotels. When a new attraction is added, it can easily fade into the 24-hour action and activity that defines the city.
The addition of High Roller in 2014 was far more than just another attraction, however, and its arrival made an indelible impact on the Las Vegas Strip. In fact, this striking observation wheel did the opposite, permanently altering the Las Vegas skyline and creating a brand-new, bird’s-eye view of the city appreciated by millions of visitors from around the world.
Anchoring Caesars Entertainment’s open-air, pedestrian-friendly destination The LINQ Promenade, High Roller is a 21st-century architectural achievement. This eye-catching attraction is visible from miles away, as well as an iconic monument noted for its impressive craftsmanship, groundbreaking engineering elements and innovative development team that turned vision into reality.
The observation wheel is crafted from the world’s finest materials and made possible by myriad teams who worked tirelessly for four years to develop and build the attraction. With a unique single-rim design and 28 spacious, spherical cabins, visitors enjoy the memorable 30-minute rotation experience that provides breathtaking 360-degree views of Las Vegas. The same year it opened, Guinness World Records designated High Roller as “The World’s Tallest Observation Wheel.”
The High Roller Wheelhouse will be adorned with birthday décor including balloons and streamers throughout the weekend.
As for the wheel itself, five cabins will be decorated for its momentous birthday, filled with large-scale games for guests to play, including Connect Four and Jenga, as a way for riders of all ages to be entertained and play during the 30-minute rotation.
Las Vegas locals and visitors are invited to participate in the birthday celebrations with numerous special ticket offers available Friday, March 29 through Tuesday, April 30:
