    There are two planned big wheels on The Strip.

    One (Linq High Roller) is expected to open late Spring, early Summer 2014

    The other (Sky Vue) is stalled indefinitely. The developer is broke and I think it's dead.

    Thanks for the reminder. I found a nice pair of shorts with the new logo in Vegas this week, I'm wearing them now I love them. I tweeted last night, that the white uniforms the Dolphins were wearing, look sharp. Nice word usage!

    Yup. You can really see how it's going to change the skyline of the Strip.

    This is part of the article from the NBC website that has been posted in the Linq progress thread today.


    "A rival company is building SkyVue, a 500-foot observation wheel across from Mandalay Bay at the southern end of the Strip that will feature video screens broadcasting ads. That project is expected to open in mid-2015, according to developer David Gaffin."


    They must of found some funding from somewhere

    The project is actually a little ahead of schedule. Rumor is that it could be open late November, but for safety and testing middle of December. I think they are really trying to be operational before NYE14.

    A side note from a friend that recently returned and was staying at Harrahs. He said it was a real PITA to drive or cab it in there now. Only access in to the back of Harrahs for check in, valet or parking is via the underground tunnel coming in from the Strip.

    While you can get to Koval leaving Harrahs, you can't come in off of Koval right now...just over to the Quad.

    So, maybe, NYE 2015. Amazing how the only certainty is that these projects WILL be delayed.

    Even though Slotzilla is done on Fremont - I anticipate the ETA of that monstrosity to be ready for customers in April of 2014
