The 550-foot tall High Roller Wheel opened near the strip in Las Vegas, Nevada on Monday after nearly three years of planning and construction. The Ferris wheel is nine feet taller than the Singapore Flyer that had held the title as world’s tallest observation wheel since 2008. Tourists can purchase tickets for one revolution around the wheel, a 30-minute ride, for $24.95 during the day and $35.95 at night.
