Go Tour The Linq

The Linq and High Roller are some of the newest hotspots in Las Vegas and every Las Vegas guide should be familiar with them.

The Linq is the $550 million outdoor retail, dining and entertainment district patterned after The Grove in Los Angeles and is located between the Quad (Imperial Palace) Linq Hotel and the Flamingo.  It is anchored by the High Roller, which is currently the world’s tallest observation wheel and amazing to see up close.

When the property opened, we were some of the first to go and explore it. One thing that many people enjoy is how different and kind of “far away” it feels from walking the Strip.

Caesars has hit a home run with the High Roller, building a skyline-enhancing attraction that helps Vegas  maintain its status as the “Entertainment Capital of the World.”  To make sure you tour it right, go into the Linq Concierge office just past the water fountain.  There you will find friendly Linq Concierges who can give you all the info about the High Roller and shops and restaurants at the Linq.

Tour Groups and The Wheel

For tour groups they have a valet area literally located under the wheel which can accommodate small buses and limos. There is a separate entrance and lobby for charters and groups at the end of the pedestrian area, basically under the High Roller, and a pullout for (2 – 3) motor coaches immediately south of the High Roller on “Linq Way.”

Each of the 28 pods holds up to 40 persons and takes about 30 minutes to go all the way around.  Drinks purchased at an on-site bar can be taken on board, and some specials are offered that include unlimited drinks during your ride. You can buy out a pod or pods for groups.
