But, look up there. We think that's how you build a gigantic Ferris wheel. Yes, we went for an in-person update on the High Roller wheel being built alongside The Linq. And, they have all manner of new, large, pointy parts.
Compare the High Roller photo at the top of our page, with the scene at SkyVue above.
So, yes, the High Roller is coming along nicely as measured by our very un-scientific method of deduction. It looks like it is coming along nicely.
And, look at that curve at the base of the wheel. Ohhh, if only we had a protractor and a degree in structural engineering. We'd be able to accurately determine the progress for you. But, we're excited at how quickly the infrastructure is falling into place. Maybe falling is not the best word.
If all turns around for SkyVue, they say they'll place a bunch of new parts on their construction site sometime between May and June. However, they will no longer commit to declaring an actual finished/opening date. The Linq and the High Roller are racing to a late 2013/early 2014 premiere.
