I wanted to share this sweet picture of the High Roller at The Linq and thankfully Caesars Entertainment provided some useless random facts about the ferris wheel.

If you’re in Vegas today you can ride the High Roller for free if you’re one of the first 100 people to show up. On to the facts:

During its first 100 days in operation, the High Roller has set records, reached milestones and attracted riders from all walks of life. Key highlights since its opening include:

·         The High Roller has made roughly 3,870 full rotations.

·         The oldest visitor to ride the High Roller was 99 years old.

·         The High Roller’s LED lights have been programmed in honor of six different holidays and special events.
