Yesterday: Ferris’ Wonder Wheel
Everyone knows about the popular carnival ride, but did you know it was inspired by a water wheel on Nevada’s Carson River?
Ferris’ Fantastic Wheel
The 500-foot tall, 520-foot in diameter High Roller—located on The Las Vegas Strip—is the World's Largest Observation Wheel. It features 28 glass-enclosed cabins, travels one foot per second, takes 30 minutes for a complete revolution, features more than 2,000 LED lights and 112 cables, and runs parallel to Las Vegas Boulevard. The Strip superstar was built at a cost of $300 million by Caesar's Entertainment.
