World's Tallest Ferris Wheel

Fantastic views all over Las Vegas. Our group was all afraid of heights, but once we got on, we were all fine. Each car is very roomy. It has a few seats, but you better plan on standing. It did not sway at all. We went in the daytime. At night, they have a bar in cars. So glad we did it!

Giant spectacular Ferris wheel!

[Denise, 04/25/2014]

Slowly spinning along the Las Vegas Strip since the end of March, 2014. Deceptive from a distance, but it's huge, 550 ft. tall. Each of its 28 cabins can carry up to 40 passengers.
