Strip’s High Roller wheel lowers prices for summer

By Anthony Curtis


After debuting with pricing that was labeled a bit too rich, some discounting has been instituted for the High Roller observation wheel on the Strip. It's still $34.95 for adults to ride at night (after 6 p.m.), but it's now $5 less at $19.95 for daytime rides. A new price level for ages 13-17 is $14.95 during the day and $24.95 at night (children 12 and under are free).

More economical for many will be the "Family Pack," which includes tickets for two adults and two children for $49.95 during the day and $79.95 at night. This package saves up to $40 on the nighttime ride. The Family Pack is the least expensive play for a family of four if at least one child is over 12, but if neither is, buying two single adult tickets with the kids riding free is better. The new prices are being called "summertime rates" and will be in place at least until Sept. 1.

Dunham comin': Ventriloquist Jeff Dunham will become a regular at Planet Hollywood beginning Nov. 28. Dunham's show will play in the 1,400-seat theater that hosted Peep show, with dates scheduled through May 31. Ticket prices have not been announced.

Drones: Marquee Dayclub at the Cosmopolitan is offering drone bottle service by the pool. For $20,000, flying drones will deliver Champagne to your cabana and snap photos of you and your friends.

QUESTION: Can you tell us the particulars on July Fourth fireworks?

ANSWER: At 9 p.m., fireworks displays will fire from Green Valley Ranch on the east side, Red Rock on the west and Caesars Palace. Then at 9:30 The Linq will have a display (rides on the High Roller will be $49.95 from 8:30 to 9:30 and include a drink). Other smaller displays are also planned throughout the valley.

Andy Anderson was right years ago when he proposed a gigantic wheel for Kakaako's waterfront as many world class cities now have. But the short visioned myopic folks nixed the idea.

You mean like putting hotel's in Waikiki, one shaped like a pyramid, another looking like New York skyline and another with an imitation Eiffel tower? What about putting a elevated train in Las Vegas that goes to 3 hotels but NOT the Las Vegas airport and the stops are in the BACK of the hotels very far from the hotel check in lobby and the hotel rooms themselves? Wait a minute Oahu will put a similar elevated train that is overpriced and useless. Just like promises of the Oahu train going to UH or to Ewa Beach, for years promises were made for the LV train to go the airport but it was just to cost prohibitive and useless because of the placement of the rail stops.
