High Roller observation wheel

  • The 550ft. observation wheel is located on the world-famous Las Vegas, Nevada strip.
  • The wheel’s unique design features include spherical cabins supported from a single tube rim.
  • As well as stunning views, it offers riders an immersive audio, video, and lighting experience.

Part spectacle, part ride—all Vegas—Caesars’ High Roller goes a step beyond observation wheels like the London Eye and the Singapore Flyer, offering a full entertainment experience along with dizzyingly high views of the city. Located across the strip from Caesars Palace, the wheel serves as the focal point of the company’s newly developed quarter-mile-long entertainment row, featuring casinos, fine dining, and high-end retail outlets. Currently the largest wheel of its kind in the world, the High Roller features a circular rim formed of a single tube supporting 28 spherical cabins. Each cabin will accommodate up to 40 people, who can partake in a number of themed entertainment experiences throughout the 30 minute ride, including Elvis and Frank Sinatra “Experiences”.

Arup provided a wide range of design services on this project, including structural, geotechnical, mechanical, and electrical engineering, as well as acoustics and fire safety consulting.

Open in March 2014, Caesars’ High Roller will be an iconic ride that promises to redefine the Las Vegas skyline and draw crowds from around the world.
