While visiting Las Vegas, I highly recommend a ride on the High Roller, which is located at the LINQ. The High Roller is by far one of my favorite attractions in Las Vegas. You can see for miles and the view is great during the day or at night, as well as in the rain, (providing it is not thundering and lightening, the wheel only stops for bad storms, to load bars, to help the handy-capped, or due to an emergency).
This famous Ferris wheel is 550 feet tall and it takes thirty minutes to travel around one time. It is currently the largest wheel in the world. On your thirty minute ride you can choose to purchase a happy hour pass which allows you as many cocktails as you can responsibly drink, in a thirty minute timespan. It is well worth the price for such an experience.
A regular price ticket can be purchased, only minutes before riding, directly at the site of the High Roller. You may also purchase tickets ahead of time online. If you are on a tighter budget due to a little gambling, amazing deals for this particular perk can be found on Groupon, Travelzoo, and some of the other discount sites. I recently purchased a ticket for $30 for the day-time happy hour ride.
Other High Roller options include the chance to do chocolate tastings every Thursday from 5pm-8:30pm. If chocolate isn’t your thing, you could try a little yoga. Yoga sessions are 60 minutes and must be booked ahead of time.
The High Roller is great for couples, families, and of course all of your bachelor and bachelorette parties. Even if you do have a little fear of heights, don’t let that deter you. The cars are very spacious and secure. Be a little daring and have some fun, you won’t regret the beautiful views.
