When we were in Las Vegas in November, they were putting the finishing touches on the Observational Wheel which is the tallest in the world. We could see it in the distance from the place we were staying.
There was a restaurant in the complex we were going to where it was this time and we got a close up look of it.
In each enclosure (or whatever they're called) it's supposed to fit 40 people. The ride lasts 30 minutes. I believe it because from the restaurant we were at we could see the spokes and they barely moved.
We went to a restaurant that was called the Yard House. http://www.caesars.com/thelinq/restaurants/yardhouse.html#.U6Mz57Hb7EM I had ribs and they were excellent. They had around 160 different kinds of beers.
When we left I was able to get a picture of the wheel at night. It changes colors. Cool!
