These support pilings are part of the structure that supports the High Roller wheel, a ride I’ve never taken because it looks too damn scary, and there are no toilets in the cabins! These photos were taken long before the damn virus came to ravage people’s lives. Partly sunny and seventy-three is on tap for Las Vegas today, very nice!

I have been on it twice it is massive in size.
That’s cool, did the height scare you?
That’s a hard pass for me. I have a bit of a fear of heights.
Me too, but flying in a big jet doesn’t bother me. Weird. No toilets – how many messes does the staff need to clean per week! Yuck.
It looks pretty solid but I get dizzy standing on a chair. Don’t think so….
You are wise!
Not necessarily wise, but definitely smart enough to keep my feet on the ground!
It’s good to be grounded! 😂
This is true!
People who ride on these contraptions sure put a lot of faith in their maintenance.
Too much faith, Anneli. In this thread, there is a comment from another local person about how the ride stopped, maybe because of a power outage. People were taken down somehow. Nooo thanks!
My life is exciting enough without having to pay for extra thrills.
It looks very stable John…. I will go for a ride without fear 🙂
Go for it! Actually, it’s been there a few years now, how it can handle our windstorms I can’t understand. We had 60mph gusts the other day, again! 😂
Those look similar in design to the ones at the Space Needle in Seattle.
I’ll take your word on that, never been! They are really massive.
Who needs toilets at that height? It will all evaporate/dissolve on the way down.
Not hardly! I bet they have plenty of people who clean those cabins up frequently, yuck! 😖
Yes, the lack of toilets is an issue for me.
See, not everyone can handle the time it takes for that wheel to turn! So who cleans up the messes…
Plus, I was thinking of the poor, people that got stuck on that not to long ago. That could be bad.
Oh, what happened?
A while back, they had a Power Outage or something and were stuck for like 2-3 hours! I think they had a ladder or something to get down.
Oh my gosh, heck nooo! They would need fire tucks with super long booms to reach that high. No thanks!
