THG designed and produced the High Roller, at the time of construction the world’s tallest observation wheel, from concept all the way through to opening day. The High Roller elevated the observation wheel experience by incorporating entertainment and media throughout the queue and guest cabins.
THG designed and produced the High Roller, at the time of construction the world’s tallest observation wheel, from concept all the way through to opening day. Caesar’s Entertainment enlisted THG for their expertise in attractions, production, and showmanship, knowing that only a thoughtful integration of all three would result in a successful final product. THG totally reinvented the observation wheel, created an elegant spokeless design with a state-of-the-art lighting package that would create new jewel in the Las Vegas skyline.
Guests climb aboard and enter custom-designed luxury cabins before rising to a height of 550 feet. Along the way, they experience a 30-minute ride, complete with hosted media and in-cabin entertainment, that delivers far more than spectacular views. However, the in-cabin experience is only part of the story.THG designed the High Roller queue and pre-show to provide the perfect complement to the main attraction, with themed areas and original artwork to set the mood. The queue culminates in a massive pre-show theater with a 270-degree screen that plays five original shows that pay tribute to the spirit, history, music, and entertainment of Las Vegas.
Since opening in 2014, the High Roller has become an iconic part of the Las Vegas skyline, appearing on countless mugs, t-shirts, and merchandise. THG is proud to have contributed this superlative addition to one of the world’s great entertainment destinations.
