WATCH: First Ride on the LINQ High Roller ferris wheel in Las Vegas, NV

The LINQ High Roller ferris wheel on the Las Vegas Strip

AmericaJR’s Jason Rzucidlo reports from the Las Vegas Strip for his first ride on the LINQ High Roller ferris wheel. It is a 550-foot tall (167.6 m), 520-foot (158.5 m) diameter giant Ferris wheel on the Las Vegas Strip in Paradise, Nevada, United States of America. The High Roller is owned and operated by Caesars Entertainment Corporation. It opened to the public on March 31, 2014 and is currently the world’s tallest Ferris wheel. It is 9 ft (2.7 m) taller than its predecessor, the 541-foot (165 m) Singapore Flyer, which had held the record since 2008. At night the wheel is illuminated by a 2,000-LED system which can display a single solid color, differently colored sections, multiple colors moving around the rim, and custom displays for special events and holidays.
