Standing more than 100-feet taller than the iconic London Eye, the High Roller features 28 glass-enclosed cabins each equipped to hold up to 40 passengers. High Roller riders will be treated to unparalleled views of the Las Vegas Strip and surrounding valley during the 30 minutes it takes the wheel to complete one full rotation. The experience includes a dynamic video and music show that fades away seamlessly as the wheel ascends to showcase the most impressive views of the Las Vegas valley.

An official christening event commemorating the completion of the wheel and inaugural rides will be held at 11:30 a.m. The christening will mark the final milestone in the construction of the wheel, which broke ground in February 2012.
