    They claim they are still building it, but work seems to have stopped. Last I heard, they found enough money to pay the convicts from the local jail that were doing the welding on it.

    The one across from Mandalay Bay was to be called Sky Vue
    The one at the Linq at Harrahs is called High Roller for the present time, but is looking for a new name.

    There are two being built right now, the one across from MB and the one down behind The Quad...the one near Quad is still progressing nicely...the one near MB has stalled...

    We were just looking at it last month thinking nothing has been done for the past year.

    It's funny that the webcam still works.

    Unless something dramatic happens - that wheel is dead. The developer can't get further financing. And, the reason he can't get it is because he failed to line up potential tenants for the site. We all like to see projects succeed in LV. But, I don't think this one will make it.

    I don't understand how it makes sense to have two giant ferris wheels on the strip. Does either of them have anything remarkable about them, other than size? I thought LV was trying to get away from amusement-type attractions.
