    Is there a good place online to purchase cheaper tickets for the Linq wheel?

    The info I received says @ 25 people in a pod with a bar, as opposed to 40 people without the bar. If the trip is 30 minutes, I have a hard time believing that you would get more than one drink; unless there are fewer people in your pod. Am just guessing and would love to hear from someone with experience. We are going in October.

    I would love to hear more about this, especially the open bar. Toadi, when do you go?

    I've been on the High Roller twice - once in the daytime and once at night. On the night run the pod behind mine had a bar cart rolled onto it along with about 15 passengers. The wheel was stopped for the loading and unloading of the bar cart.
    After the ride, I asked one of the bar pod passengers about the cart and he said it had all the usual well drinks on it along with a handful of beers and wine. I didn't think to ask if they were allowed to request specific things in advance. He said they drank as much as they wanted and tipped the bartender at the end.

    there is a living social deal for this right now that includes the happy hour open bar if you go from 12-7. Sounds fun, is it worth it?

    I would do it at least once, and would prefer it at night. I don't think the happy half hour. It's really not worth it, I'm a distance drinker not a marathon drinker.

    I've been twice now, sunset and at night. Night was way better, it's beautiful all lit up! I'm not a drinker, but I think the bar would be distracting... and it's going to take up a lot of the pod. I feel like you'd spend more time being focused on drinking than the view.

    But, there are times during the ride where there isn't much to look at. Also my last ride was full of screaming children.. which wouldn't be on the bar pod haha.

    I still stand by that it's a cool thing to do! Sure it's a little pricey, but come on, I'll blow $35 in 5 minutes on something else in Vegas haha.

    Get yourself a high class adult beverage and head into any of the hotel elevators to the highest floor you are allowed.....walk down any of the hallways to the end and you will get a FREE view of Vegas.

    We went up in September. We had bought the groupon that had a BOGO. I didn't even finish my drink...too busy looking at sights. So I wouldn't do the bar package especially because it isn't when it is dark and I would definitely recommend going when it is dark out.

    Purchased a groupon this morning for $55.20 out the door, using a promo code (details below). The regular groupon price was $69 and included "VIP ride package for two with flex passes or Happy Half Hour passes". I have no idea what "VIP" means...I assume it means nothing. I went to the Linq site and couldn't figure out what a "flex pass" was except that it appears you don't have to choose a specific time in advance. But you wouldn't be able to do that with a groupon voucher anyway. The voucher doesn't explain whether I have to redeem the voucher in advance, making a reservation for a later date and/or time, or whether the voucher is to be redeemed and the ride is to be taken right away.

    In any case, we intend to do the happy half hour. I think $28 per person for a ride that includes a drink or two is a good deal.

    Note: to get this price, use promo code "SALE" when checking out. Offer expires today, 11/13.

    Just bought this Groupon; thanks for the heads up. Does anyone know if you can take the Groupon to the Linq and book in advance ? I hear that there are line ups for the wheel; is that true? Or do you just show up and probably get on pretty quickly?

    Easiest/Cheapest way to get high roller tickets: Blackjack

    At the Linq and Flamingo, several blackjack tables give you one free high roller ticket (no limitation on day/night) for a suited blackjack. Over the four days I was just there, my group of four earned a combined 12 of these bad boys. You have to use them yourself (your name is written on them by the pit boss and they do ID at the cashier), so we sadly had to lose 8 of them to waste. But we enjoyed our free night ride.

    Thanks for the tip! i'm guessing Blackjack pays 6:5 at those tables?

    Aside from that, anyone know of any deals going on right now for High Roller tickets? All the other promos seem to have expired.
