Who designed the High Roller in Las Vegas?

The High Roller Las Vegas Observation Wheel is owned and operated by Caesars Entertainment, who hired Arup Engineers to design the structure. This group has a reputation for executing complex and difficult projects. They have completed high-profile projects such as the magnificent Sydney Opera House, the historic Kingsgate Bridge, the London Eye, the Pompidou Centre in Paris, the Öresund Bridge that connects Denmark and Sweden, the Shard in London, and the Singapore Flyer, to name a few.

Architecture & design of the High Roller

High Roller Observation Wheel

The High Roller wheel is supported by a pair of custom-designed spherical roller bearings, each weighing around 19,400 lb. The outside diameter of each bearing is 7.55 feet, the inner bore is 5.25 feet, and the width is 2.07 feet. The outer rim is made up of 28 parts, each 56 feet (17 meters) long. The passenger cabins (or capsules) are located on the outboard rim of the wheel and independently rotated by electric motors to maintain a horizontal cabin floor throughout each entire cycle. There are 28 passenger cabins, each with a capacity of 40 people.

Each 225-square-foot (20.9-square-meter) cabin weighs around 44,000 pounds (20,000 kg), has a diameter of 22 feet (6.7 m), 300 square feet (28 m2) of glass, and eight flat-screen televisions. A 2,000-LED system illuminates the wheel at night, allowing it to display a single solid color, different colored parts, numerous colors rotating around the rim, and bespoke presentations for special occasions and holidays.

The world's second tallest ferris wheel!

High Roller Observation Wheel

When it first opened, the High Roller Observation Wheel was dubbed "The World's Tallest Observation Wheel" by Guinness World Records. It held this title until October 2020, when the 689-foot-tall Ain Dubai Ferris wheel made its debut. Ain Dubai, standing at a remarkable 689 feet (210 meters), officially took the title of the world's tallest observation wheel when it opened in 2021.

Nevertheless, the High Roller is a must-visit experience in Las Vegas, offering stunning views of the strip and its surroundings in a state-of-the-art gondola! Book your tickets to ride the observation wheel on your next visit to Las Vegas!
