Two Giant Observations Wheels set for Las Vegas.

Home Inspector with Certified Structure Inspector IOS #1730, EA #30

While doing research for my next trip down to Las Vegas I was excited to see they have broken ground and poured the foundation for the SkyVue observation wheel at the south end of the strip.  This wheel will be almost 500 foot tall and have air conditioned gondolas. It will be very noticeable with its 50,000 sqft of led signage on each side. The site will also include 140,000 sqft of retail space. This is an exciting new attraction but it appears it’s not the only one.

I also discovered that Caesars Entertainment was adding its own observation wheel to the middle of the strip. The 550 foot tall High Roller wheel will be located behind the Imperial Palace and Flamingo as part of the Linq project. The project will demolish O’Sheas, tear out the Flamingo tennis courts, and a remake of the Imperial Palace and will also bring 24 new buildings and 200,000 sqft of retail space.

The one thing about Las Vegas is it doesn’t stay the same. I look forward to checking out the new construction during my trip in the near future.

One thing about LAs Vegas is that it always changes.
