High Roller Wheel at The LINQ in Las Vegas

I still have to take a ride on the High Roller Wheel at the LINQ in Las Vegas, one day…

It is not as much as an adrenaline rush as other activities are; I would say it’s more like an exciting attraction for all ages. For a few years now, the High Roller Wheel in Las Vegas has become part of the Las Vegas environment and it’s just perfect for seeing the city from above. Keep it in mind when you go to Vegas for a winter break or for celebrating a special event :)

I’ve seen and photographed the wheel from several angles, and the top image was from the Linq hotel parking lot. Most of the pictures are available as art prints in my Fine Art America gallery. Here is the whole wheel at dusk and the cabins like little beads connected to the main circle. Almost like a necklace… Click on the photos for more details:

The Cabins

The round cabins are quite large. Believe it or not, up to 40 people can fit in one and party at the same time! Once inside you will have a 360-degree view of the Strip and the whole Las Vegas Valley for 30 minutes. BTW: while in “flight” you can indulge into alcoholic and non-alcoholic beverages (by purchase only). Here are the prices from their official website, with some goodies :)
Here is how the cabins (also called gondolas) look like seen from outside, looking up:

Another fun thing is that you can buy plastic cups in the shape of the cabins in the gift shop near the entrance :) Probably the gift shop is still open…

As I said, at that time I was in the mood of photographing the wheel from the outside:

… and for the heck of photographing, I enjoyed shooting the cabins from below, showing the people getting on and off:

Another perspective

Another perspective I found interesting was from the Linq Promenade. * I’m proud to say that I SOLD an art print with this picture from my FAA gallery. Thank you buyer from Sauquoit, NY.! :)

I also transformed some into digital paintings for a more artistic look, and here is a watercolor of my original photograph of the Linq Promenade at dusk:
