For time being this is the highest Ferris Wheel or moving Observation ride at 550' high; until another gets finished in near future somewhere else in the world. This ride is part of the new development by Ceasars/Harrah's known as the Linq. It's located between the Flamingo and the Quad Hotel Casinos (with the Quad soon to be renamed after remodeling is complete to the Linq Hotel and Casino (and can't be done fast enough!!))
The views of Vegas are outstanding. Especially at night. There is a bar right before you enter the ride that has a variety of drinks/adult beverages but since the ride takes awhile to complete it's rotation I HIGHLY suggest that your entire party go to the bathroom BEFORE embarking on the ride. The set up and entrance to the ride remind me of any attraction at any amusement park (like Disney or Universal) with the queues; pre-ride display; and the hokey host/video on the ride, which describes it. But the modules are large; hold quite a few people with a few benches and seats. And you have plenty of room to walk back and forth in the capsule to see various views of Vegas, the Strip and the outlying area. You really are high up in the sky because you can look DOWN on some of the hotels and casino roof tops, including some of the pools.
I do think it is a little overpriced for what it is. But their are specials, various discounts, total rewards members of platinum level or above can get two for one tickets or comp tickets, etc. There are also happy hour cars or drinking cars that you can pay a higher price for and get drinks while you are riding. Might sound like fun but don't know if it's worth the extra price.
I will post pictures of the view and the wheel both during day and night.
