World Record Ferris Wheel Opens in Vegas

The High Roller, a new Ferris wheel in Las Vegas, is 550 feet tall- the tallest “observation wheel” in the world! The wheel is 520 feet in diameter, and each of its 28 cabins can hold 40 passengers for a half-hour trip around the wheel. The huge wheel gives a new feature to the Las Vegas skyline, one that will make it immensely recognizable in the years to come. Read about the specs of the new Ferris wheel, and see plenty of pictures at Kuriositas. -via the Presurfer
