Caesars Entertainment is redefining the iconic Las Vegas skyline with The LINQ, an open-air retail, dining and entertainment district, anchored by the world's tallest observation wheel, known as the High Roller. The attraction marked a construction milestone last week as the observation wheel’s 28th and final passenger cabin was attached to the wheel. Each cabin can hold 40 people, and one revolution of the wheel takes 30 minutes. The world’s tallest observation wheel at 550 feet (167.5 meters) high is the focal point of The Linq, Caesars Entertainment’s $550 million outdoor retail, dining and entertainment district. At 550 feet and measuring 520 feet in diameter, the High Roller will eclipse both the London Eye and Singapore Flyer.
The next construction phase includes adding lighting and communications systems, completing the platform structure and testing the various systems of the wheel as well as the removal of temporary construction equipment. Located at the heart of the world-famous Las Vegas Strip, The LINQ will span more than 300,000-square-feet of gross leasable space and feature more than 30 unique retail, dining and entertainment experiences. The destination is set to open in phases beginning in late 2013. More information at thelinq.com.
