The High Roller Ferris Wheel, part of the $550-million entertainment district called The Linq, opened a few weeks ago on the strip in Las Vegas. Will Shreveport-Bossier's casino industry take a nod from their big brothers in Sin City for non-gaming entertainment concepts?

When I was in town, I noticed that the lines were backed up nearly to the California border, as crowds of tourists and locals alike waited in line to experience this 30-minute ride on the world's tallest observation wheel in the world.

This is not the average Ferris Wheel, so if you're squeamish or afraid of heights you may be more comfortable keeping your feet on the ground at a high-stakes poker table. But for those looking for a 550-ft. thrill and a solid bucket list item, it's a must-experience ride.

The High Roller provides a panoramic view of the Vegas valley in high-tech comfort. You actually ride in a plush air-conditioned pod, which holds 40 passengers each. These pods come complete with in-cabin video and music.
