Vegas strikes again with The High Roller Wheel

Vegas never sleeps and keeps developing again and again. The newest over the top project: The High Roller Wheel.

With its 550 feet (167m) it’s the tallest observation wheel in the world! To compare, the famous wheel in London is “only” 443 feet (135m). With 28 cabins, big enough for 40 persons each, the High Roller Wheel can host about 2200 guests per hour! 

 
The High Roller, owned by Ceasars Entertainment Corporations is situated parallel of the Las Vegas Strip on the site of the former O’Shea’s Casino and is part of the new entertainment centre THE LINQ. It’s accessible from The LINQ via multiple entrances. The Las Vegas Monorail, meanwhile, cruises right in front of the High Roller with convenient stops at both the Flamingo and The Quad.
 
A 30 minutes ride will cost you $25. The 360 degree sight cabins will give you an amazing view of Las Vegas and offers 9 flat screen televisions and an Ipad dock to enjoy your own music. You can rent the cabins for a private party and , of course, for a wedding (hey, it's in Vegas).
 
The costs of the project: 550 Million Dollars.
 
The High Roller Wheel is scheduled to open in March 2014. Of course we’ll keep you posted.

Number of Las Vegas visitors stabilized

After three years of growth, the number of Las Vegas visitors has stabilized in 2013.
Over 39,6 million people visited Sin City last year. This was almost equal to 2012 (39,7 million).

Compared to Macau (+/- 28 million visitor in 2013), Vegas is still nr.1! At least if we look at the number of visitors. When we talk about the revenue per visitor, the story is totally different: Vegas visitors spent on average $164 per visit, Macau visitors a stunning $1600!
 
For 2014, Las Vegas aims for at least 40 million visitors! They can count on our crew to contribute to this number :-)
