The wheel will feature 28 sphere-shaped, transparent cabins that will hold up to 40 passengers each. It will take about 30 minutes for guests to travel around the wheel and admission will cost $25.
The Linq is a $550 million project to rejuvenate the Las Vegas strip by adding new bars, restaurants, shopping areas and entertainment. It will be located across the street from Caesars Palace and will run from the Flamingo to O’Sheas. While O’Sheas will be going away, the area will become a similarly-themed part of The Linq. Imperial Palace will also be involved in the project.
About a third of the project’s budget will be going towards the High Roller observation wheel project.
