The huge round pods seem like something out of a sci-fi movie, but you won’t find any aliens here. What you will find on the High Roller are some of the best views in Vegas through curving glass walls on all sides. Take in Strip vistas like the Fountains of Bellagio and the Eiffel Tower, plus the mountains and skyline on all sides. You’ll barely know you’re moving during your half-hour rotation as the huge observation wheel transports you up until you’re 550 feet above the ground. Hey, if you’re lucky, maybe you’ll spot an alien craft—no movie needed.
