Vegas High Roller - Observation Wheel Design and Construction

A session at CMAA Rising Construction Managers Conference

Saturday 26th October, 2013

12:00pm to 2:00pm (PST)

The Vegas High Roller is currently in construction, and when complete, it will be the world’s tallest observation wheel at 550 feet. It is the centerpiece of the new LINQ development, owned by Caesars Entertainment, and will carry a groundbreaking 1120 passengers during each 30 minute revolution. This iconic structure builds upon Arup’s past experiences with giant observation wheels like the London Eye and Singapore Flyer, but also incorporates many unique and innovative design features. The design process was heavily influenced by constructability and construction sequencing, leading to a unique marriage of engineering, construction, and architecture. The end result is an engineering marvel that will be an icon on the Vegas skyline for decades to come.
