Thumbs up Vegas Ferris Wheel.

LAS VEGAS -- Riders are getting their first turns on a skyline-changing Las Vegas Strip observation wheel that's opening as the world's tallest.
A ceremony Monday at 11:30 a.m. local time marks the completion of the 550-foot High Roller - built by Caesars Entertainment Corp. as part of its $550 million LINQ development at the heart of the glittery Strip resort corridor.
The Ferris-style wheel has 28 glass-enclosed and air-conditioned gondolas that can each hold up to 40 people.
A full revolution takes 30 minutes. Tickets are $24.95 in the daytime and $34.95 at night.

That is huge. Almost as big as a bus.

That's to make sure the ride will be smooth and steady for its passengers.
