Y’all ready for another Las Vegas post?!? I’ve been fighting the worst cold EVER all week, so I’ve actually had a chance to catch up on all my travel writing! I don’t want to contaminate the masses, so I’ve literally been living on my computer typing away all week for entertainment!
Since a “review” of the Las Vegas High Roller would be rather cheesy. We already know it’s freaking AWESOME! I figured I would pass along a few tips. There are a few things I wish I knew ahead of time and I’m going to pass this info on to you so you can have the most epic experience ever and spin away with zero regrets!
1. Bring The Fancy Camera, Tripods Etc!
This is one excursion I’m kicking myself for not only leaving the DSLR in the hotel room, but not even bringing a tripod for my phone! The view is pretty sweet AND the ride is long enough that you can chill with the fam, enjoy a cocktail AND shoot those epic pics and still have a few minutes to spare! If I were to do it all over, you best believe my DSLR & my tripod would be joining me.
2. Make Sure You Have Plenty Of Time!
This is definitely an excursion you want to have plenty of time for! Definitely not an activity to kill some time unless that amount of time is longggggg. While the wheel takes 30 minutes to complete one revolution, plan on at least an hour to accommodate entering and exiting the wheel. There is a bar, professional photos etc before you even enter the pod! Thankfully I never plan too much at the same time, so we were fine time-wise, but the one thing I overheard others mention while wondering The Linq was not planning enough time and being rushed to get to the next excursion on their schedule!
3. Buy All The Drinks & Snacks!
Just do it! The ride is longer than you think and you will be thanking yourself that you purchased those drinks and snacks! The champagne looks so chic in my photos, but I definitely wish I went with a real cocktail or maybe even a dry wine so my drink wasn’t gone in 2 sips!
4. Purchase Your Tickets Ahead Of Time!
I was so thankful that I’m a huge planner and purchased our tickets ahead of time because the standby line the day we went? Wholly molly!!!!! Since we purchased tickets online, we skipped the long line and headed right inside to the AC! I was so happy I didn’t have to stand outside in the Vegas heat sweating to death waiting and waiting to get inside!
5. Use The Bathroom Before Entering The Pod!
This tip is for all the drinkers and small kids!!! Even if you don’t feel like peeing, just go! Obviously there are no bathrooms inside the pods, so take care of things before you board. You’re welcome;-)
