There is no shortage of places to see fireworks this Fourth of July in Las Vegas. From the Las Vegas Motor Speedway to Station Casinos including Red Rock Resort and Green Valley Ranch as well as Mandalay Bay Beach there are several places to watch the night sky explode with red, white and blue. And this year there will be one more place to feel the patriotic pride – The High Roller Observation Wheel at The LINQ.
What better way to watch fireworks than high in the sky while riding a Ferris wheel? That’s exactly what patrons will get this July 4th when they board The High Roller, the world’s largest observation wheel at The LINQ. Standing at 550 above the Las Vegas Strip, the High Roller is an incredible way to see Vegas’ skyline on any given night. But on July 4th that 30-minute 360-degree trip will be all the more amazing as you view the city’s most spectacular fireworks while sitting in one of the High Roller’s 28 glass-enclosed cabins.
Fourth of July High Roller riders will get to experience two different fireworks shows light up the night sky on this celebratory night. At 9:00 p.m. watch in amazement as the Caesars Entertainment fireworks burst above the Strip for a show you won’t forget. Then keep your eye on the sky at 9:30 p.m. when The LINQ hosts its first ever fireworks show that will be ignited in a parking lot near the wheel. This vantage point is sure to make you swell with pride as you experience extreme close-ups of the bursting fireworks.
July Fourth isn’t the only time to see lights glowing around The High Roller. Each and every night the massive wheel dazzles with more than 2,000 LED lights. Whether you’re watching the wheel spin on the ground or in one of its cabins, these lights are mesmerizing. The lights turn on at dusk and stay on until early morning. And just like a fireworks show, riders and viewers will be able to watch as the wheel lights up in different colors including bright pink, turquoise, purple, green and white, and other cool color combinations.
