The Las Vegas High Roller at The Linq now holds the title of the World’s Tallest Observation Wheel after being recognized by Guinness World Records Adjudicator Michael Empric at a special reception honoring the team who designed and constructed the wheel on Thursday in Las Vegas.

The record for the largest observation wheel is based on the total diameter of the wheel and the wheel must be a permanent structure. In order to receive the record, the High Roller project team had to submit information about the wheel’s design and construction as well as an independent surveyor’s report verifying the diameter of the wheel.

More than 300 guests including the High Roller project team, High Roller contractors and crew, local dignitaries, Caesars Entertainment executives, members of the media and special guests enjoyed the ceremony which included a special gallery exhibit depicting the construction of the High Roller by photographer Denise Truscello.
