The new Vegas Ferris wheel at The LINQ began working on March 31. According to The Christian Science Monitor, it's the tallest Ferris wheel in the world stands at 550 feet. The huge attraction is part of a $550 million restaurant, bar, retail and entertainment development built by Caesars Entertainment Corp.

"Tourists began taking in the view Monday from a skyline-changing observation wheel that offers a unique overview of sparkling Las Vegas Strip resorts, wide skies and craggy brown mountains in the distance," reports the Christian Science Monitor. Each of the 28 cabins on the Ferris wheel holds up to 40 people and each ride lasts 30 minutes.

The Vegas Ferris wheel obviously has phenomenal views of the Las Vegas strip because of its height. Many people have been waiting in line to ride the Ferris wheel and so far, most people really like the ride. According to the report, single tickets are $24.95 during the day and $34.95 at night. If you don't want to wait in the line, you can pay $59.95 for front-of-the-line VIP passes.

People who are traveling to Las Vegas have already been planning on checking out the attraction, chairman of the seven-member Clark County Commission that governs the Strip, Steve Sisolak says that this is going to be one thing that everyone who is in Vegas is going to want to see -- and ride.
