Covid what Covid? Vegas is back and while it’s optional to wear masks in some places, others say if you’ve been fully vaccinated, you don’t need to wear one.
If you haven’t been fully vaccinated, you need that mask.
Now how do they know who’s been vaccinated and who hasn’t, that’s another story.
With mask in hand, my cousin and I decided to cross something off my bucket list.
Riding on that big wheel that’s known as the High Roller.
Now let’s not get it twisted.
The High Roller is NOT a ferris wheel.
It’s an OBSERVATION WHEEL, and it’s the tallest in the United States, if not the world coming in at 650 feet tall.
The difference between a ferris wheel and the High Roller is that a ferris wheel stops to let passengers get on.
The High Roller doesn’t.
It goes slow enough to let people on WHILE it’s moving.
Now if you have a thing about heights like I do, you’re going to be really surprised as your pod, (and that’s what the individual cars are called,pods.)slowly rises to the top.
How do you know when you’re at the top?
This is Vegas people. There’s a narrator counting down like it’s New Year’s Eve and says ,”Congratulations we’re at the top!”
Now it seems that it didn’t take long to get to the top because the ride is so smooth.
I paid $33 for a ride in the daytime.
I understand that it’s more spectacular at night, but seeing the Bellagio Fountains , Caesars Palace and other places, I was pretty impressed with the High Roller in the daytime too.
Would I go on it again?
Oh you betcha!
