The Las Vegas High Roller hit another construction milestone Tuesday morning as the observation wheel’s final passenger cabin was attached to the wheel’s rim. The addition of the 28th cabin is another major accomplishment in the construction and engineering of the world’s tallest observation wheel which is a now a distinct feature in the Las Vegas skyline. The 550-foot tall wheel will be the focal point of The Linq, Caesars Entertainment’s $550 million outdoor retail, dining and entertainment district.

To attach the wheel’s 28 cabins, the team went through many hours of detailed planning enabling crews to install the final cabin in roughly half the time originally projected.  While the High Roller is now structurally complete, the next phase for the construction team includes adding lighting and communications systems, completing the platform structure and testing the various systems of the wheel as well as the removal of temporary construction equipment.

The LINQ will open in phases beginning in late 2013. During the construction phase, the Linq and High Roller have employed about 3,000 construction workers and will create approximately 1,500 permanent jobs upon opening.
