First, when? Answer: Beginning March 1, officially at least. A soft opening is not unexpected, though, as the second phase of The Linq -- the outdoor mall between Flamingo and The Quad that will play host to The High Roller -- should reveal itself February 28.
Okay, how much? Answer: Tickets will be sold at three levels -- Early Bird ($25), Twilight Flight ($30) and Night Owl ($35). No word yet on a discount for Total Rewards members. Nor, on when they will go on sale. What causes the change in price, you ask? The time you want to ride. Which brings us to...
What are the hours? The High Roller will open each day at 10 a.m. Purchase a ticket between then and 2 p.m. to ride as an early bird for $25. Want to ride later in the day? Ride from 2 p.m. to 8 p.m. for $30 as a twilight lover. Even later? Climb aboard from 8 p.m. to 2 a.m. for $35 to be a night owl.
Passengers will board every 15 minutes. Each cabin (of which there are 28) will hold 40 passengers. The ride itself will take 30 minutes to complete. And, no, there are no restrooms aboard and there's only seating for about a dozen within each pod. So, everyone will need to hit the restroom beforehand and wear comfortable shoes, just in case.
The High Roller is 550 feet tall, eclipsing the famed London Eye as the world's tallest wheel.
