WHEEL IN THE SKY: The famous Las Vegas skyline will soon include the world’s tallest observation wheel — appropriately named The High Roller — which will open this year as the centerpiece of The Linq, a new outdoor retail, dining and entertainment plaza just off the Strip.

At 550 feet, The High Roller will stand 100 feet taller than the London Eye, and nine feet above the Singapore Flyer. Guests in one of the wheel’s 28 cabins, each of which can hold up to 40 people, will enjoy towering views of the city during leisurely 30-minute revolutions.

Located on Las Vegas Boulevard between the Quad and the Flamingo hotels, The Linq is the new concept from Caesars Entertainment Corp. Inspired by the vision of a pedestrian-friendly urban street, The Linq fuses many genres of entertainment together into one open-air arena — comparable to Bourbon Street or a smaller version of Times Square.

Overall, the 200,000-square-foot casual marketplace will offer between 30 and 40 shops and restaurants that span a variety of price ranges and cuisines, including the upscale Chayo Mexican Kitchen + Tequila Bar, and F.A.M.E., which offers casual Asian fusion. Other popular tenants include Kitson and Sprinkles Cupcakes — both making their Las Vegas debuts.

The Linq also caters to nightlife lovers with Brooklyn Bowl, an offshoot of the popular New York restaurant and music venue of the same name, as well as the return of O’Sheas, a traditional Irish pub offering more than 60 different kinds of beer.
