The 550' tall High Roller Wheel. 

 

A view from the bottom of the High Roller--where the gondolas continue to move at one foot a second as riders get on, or disembark.

A monorail passes in front of the struts of the 550-foot High Roller Observation Wheel being built as part of Caesars Entertainment's $550 million Project Linq behind the Flamingo and the Quad on the east side of the Las Vegas Strip.  Completion is anticipated in late 2013.  (Photo taken 01/01/2013).

 
 

A nighttime view from the same location.  The blue-lit building in the background is Bally's.  The High Roller will rotate about a pair of the largest spherical custom bearings ever made (with a diameter of 7.55 feet).  The passenger cars will be attached to the outside of the wheel and will be turned by electric motors which will keep the gondolas horizontal during the 30-minute long rotation of the wheel.  Each of the 28 passenger capsules will hold 40 people.  (Photo taken 01/01.2013). 

 
 

Project Linq is a planned pedestrian mall between the Flamingo and the Quad which will feature shops and restaurants.  The High Roller will be one of two giant ferris wheels on the Las Vegas Strip--the other being the SkyVue Super Wheel on the south end across from Mandalay Bay.  (Photo taken 01/01/2013).
