1 minute read

The newest attraction in Las Vegas is a 550-foot-tall observation wheel in The LINQ, a shopping and dining district. Built by Caesar’s Entertainment and boasting 28 cabins that can hold 40 passengers each, it will travel at one foot per second and take roughly 30 minutes to make one full revolution. At 550 feet, it’s nine feet taller than the Singapore Flyer and more than 100 feet taller than the London Eye (443 ft.).
