High Roller at the Linq.....


The High Roller is called the largest observation wheel in the world.     It tops out at 550 feet, which is 107 feet taller than the London Eye.






We are on board and starting our climb to the top.



This is what we saw when we were at the top.









Our condo is straight ahead about 6 miles toward that mountain in the middle.




I always try to get an "artistic" shot.      These are a few of the cables holding us together.     I converted this to black and white for impact.



There are 28 cabins and up to 40 people fit in each one.     It is 300 square feet and has floor to ceiling glass.       RJ and I felt very privileged to have the cabin entirely to ourselves.





The wheel never stops, even for loading and unloading.     It goes very slowly (one foot per second) and you just walk on and off.    The full circle takes 30 minutes  ---  Emma, I was wrong when I told you it took 60 minutes.     Grandma made a mistake.



We really enjoyed the views from above the strip.       If I were to do this again, though, I'd start about a half hour later so we could have gotten some of the lights of the casinos below.
