Las Vegas, NV High 97 Low 74
Guess what we did yesterday.
Welcome to the High Roller. The highest Ferris wheel in the world.
The doors open on both sides and you enter or exit while in motion.
I had to conquer my extreme fear of Ferris wheels in order to get on this thing. I don’t have a fear of heights, just Ferris wheels. I get sick just watching one on TV. But Clark mentioned in his post on this ride that the cars don’t swing. So I informed my stomach we were going to do this and I was not going to embarrass everyone by getting sick. I conquered!!
Key went along with us for the ride..
Sidney was really excited about being able to soar above the crowds. Look at that view of the Strip.
The High Roller is not like an amusement park ride. It takes 30 minutes to make the trip so you are moving very slowly. The views are incredible so I’m just going to post a few of the 125 pictures Jim took.
That’s our truck, parked next to the colorful bus by the tree on the right.
This is another view of our truck.
The fountains at the Bellagio.
Coming in for our landing.
Once I overcame my fears, the ride is very relaxing with amazing views in all directions. The next time (and there will be a next time) will be at night so we can see all the lights.
