On Wednesday July 25, 2012, Caesars Entertainment announced that it has received the Amusement and Transportation System (ATS) permit from Clark Country Neveda. This permit is the ‘final’ green-light Caesars needed to fully constructs all the elements that will create “The High Roller”. The observation wheel, (read: big ferris wheel) will be the largest one in the world. Larger than the Singnapore Flyer and the London Eye, The High Roller will offer some amazing views of the Las Vegas Strip. The High Roller will be taller than most hotels, and give a view yet to be seen by tourists on the strip. The High Roller will be one of the main attractions of “The Linq”, a massive outdoor, 550 million dollar entertainment complex currently being built by Caesars Entertainment.
“This permit represents a significant milestone in the development of the High Roller wheel project,” Project Director David Codiga, THE LINQ. “We have successfully satisfied Clark County’s requirements to proceed with erecting the structure and look forward to the day the High Roller makes its inaugural rotation.”
“We are enhancing the allure of the resort experience by bringing both visitors and locals something new and dynamic,” said Greg Miller, senior vice president of development for Caesars Entertainment. “The LINQ will cater to a wide variety of audiences and will serve as a location for a wide range of functions – be it a business meeting, bachelor party, first date, or ladies night out. We are creating an experience that currently does not exist within the market. The development will re-define the center Strip.”
