HIGH ROLLER DESCRIPTION
The High Roller in Las Vegas isn’t your average Ferris wheel. There’s nothing average about it. And it’s not really a Ferris wheel; it’s an observation wheel — the biggest in the world at a staggering 550-feet-tall.

Yes, you read that right: 550 feet. That’s nine feet taller than the Singapore Flyer and 107 feet taller than the London Eye. It currently holds the Guinness World Record for largest observation wheel.

Located at the heart of the Las Vegas Strip, the High Roller is the focal point of the $550 million open-air shopping, dining and entertainment district, The LINQ Promenade. It’s a sight that can’t be missed. Literally, you can’t miss it.

The High Roller is comprised of 28 enclosed and air-conditioned transparent pods holding 40 passengers each. The pods are roomy with a couple benches and the ride is smooth, not typically bothering those with a minor fear of heights.

From boarding to exit, the entire experience is about 30 minutes long (be sure to hit the bathroom before you board). Along the way, you enjoy in-cabin video and music shows while witnessing a truly unparalleled 360-degree view of Las Vegas both day and night.

With panoramic views of the Strip, the valley and the mountains, there’s something to see from every angle. But the southwest corner (your immediate right when you enter the pod) offers the best Strip views at the highest point. If you happen to nab this sweet spot, be courteous to other riders. There may be up to 39 other people riding with you in your pod. They want photos too.

The High Roller is accessible from The LINQ via multiple entrances, including a back porte cochère off of LINQ Lane (formerly Audrie Lane). The Las Vegas Monorail, meanwhile, cruises right in front of the High Roller with convenient stops at both the Flamingo and The LINQ.

To board the High Roller, guests pass through a building, which includes interactive elements, bathrooms and a bar and lounge. The building also has a hospitality area with outdoor patios, which can be reserved for catered private parties of up to 500 people.

Just as the High Roller has transformed the Las Vegas skyline, a ride inside it may transform you. After a spin on this wheel, your view of Vegas will likely never be the same.

Actor and comedy icon George Wallace is going to make you fall out of your seat from laughing so hard!

Click Here to purchase tickets with Best Price Guarantee

WALLACE AT WESTGATE DESCRIPTION
What’s the one random fact you like to tell people about your hometown? Because we guarantee George Wallace already knows it – and a few that you don’t. While it’s possible he might be a cyborg supercomputer disguised as a human, it’s probably more accurate that his comedic talents have helped him travel the world and experience these things.

If you know anything about comedy, you probably know how legendary George Wallace is. Not because he’s been doing it for so long (even though he’s been in the game since 1977), but because he’s still reinventing himself! Yeah, he’s been in movies and TV shows, has traveled the world numerous times and has all the comedic accolades one could ever dream of, but it’s his off-the-top creativity that makes him so unique. Anyone can memorize a joke, but not everyone can pull humor out of their **ahem** like Wallace can.

So when you’re watching the show and Wallace knows more about your town than you do, it’s not because he has a computer for a brain (which we cannot confirm nor deny), it’s because he’s a brainiac. So get your tickets today and get ready to HILARIOUSLY have your mind blown.

Donny and Marie is a family-friendly show that follows the winning formula of their 1970s TV program, incorporating dancing, humor and plenty of their hit songs and current chart-toppers.

DONNY & MARIE DESCRIPTION
Whether you’re a little bit country or a little bit rock and roll, Donny and Marie Osmond will have you dancing in your seats (or maybe the aisles depending on whatever you’re sippin’ on) with their 90-minute, feel-good Vegas concert.

Singing together on stage for the first time in 1973 during a Las Vegas Osmond show, the brother and sister duo discovered their niche and hit the ground running.

And while Donny got his start singing with his six brothers in the family music group, The Osmonds, and while Marie originally achieved solo success when her version of “Paper Roses” hit No. 1 on the Billboard Country Music charts, the two left their roots and joined forces in 1976 to host the ABC variety show, “Donny & Marie.”

Still performing together today with every bit of gusto and showmanship that previously sky-rocketed the two into teen stardom, Donnie and Marie’s headlining Las Vegas show takes audiences back to yesteryear while simultaneously indulging onlookers with today’s popular hits.
Since opening their show in 2008 at the Flamingo, their family-friendly concert entertains with high-energy numbers such as “Get the Party Started,” “Dancing in the Streets” and “Knock on Wood” in addition to a new song, “Vegas Love,” which is off of their latest and first album they have recorded together in 30 years.

Following the winning formula of their 1970s TV program by incorporating dancing and humor and performing most of their hit songs as a duo in addition to highlighting some of their career achievements individually, there is not a dull moment in this production.
For Marie’s turn in the spotlight, she sings her most well-known song, “Paper Roses,” along with some of her other country favorites, accompanied by two guitar players.

She then takes it a bit slower for a moment when she belts out a flawless rendition of the operatic “Pie Jesu” but then heats things up with a mash up of “Walk this Way” and “These Boots Were Made for Walking,” accompanied by male dancers and, of course, elaborate and dazzling costumes.
But when it’s Donny’s turn to woo the audience, the set transforms for the performer who was always a little bit rock ‘n’ roll, and he appears out of the on-stage fog to rock his 1989 comeback hit “Soldier of Love.”

Donny, a “Dancing with the Stars” winner, shows off some of his moves and some funky choreography in “Yo Yo” while footage of him and his brothers dancing during the ’70s plays on a screen behind the stage.
Even though Donny likes to rock, it was his love ballads that made him an official heartthrob and he doesn’t disappoint the longtime fans, singing well-known hits like “Puppy Love,” accompanied by footage of him during his teenage years.

“This is the part where all of the women would scream,” says Donny in the middle of “Puppy Love,” which of course, elicits screams from the female members of the audience. “I’ve still got it!” he proclaims and the audience agrees.

Donny and Marie reunite on stage toward the end of the show, singing some of their classic hits like “Make the World Go Away,” “Morning Side of the Mountain” and “Deep Purple.”
The intimate 750-seat showroom at the Flamingo is a perfect fit for Donny and Marie, offering a good view from just about any seat and allowing the performers to walk out into the audience and get close to their fans. The classic Vegas-style room features booths and tables and contributes to the feeling of nostalgia the duo evokes with their show.

The Osmonds have both starred on Broadway and they close the show with songs from “Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat,” “Wicked,” “The Sound of Music” and more.
Donny and Marie have been crowd pleasers in Vegas since childhood and judging by the fact that they’re still consistently selling out shows, they’ll continue to be welcome for many years to come.

PARTY AT THE PARK
Every Tuesday and Wednesday, join us at The Park for a celebration. Starting at 6 p.m. enjoy free live music as well as $5 beer, wine and shot specials.

Live music and $5 shots take over Las Vegas at Party at The Park, a free weekly outdoor celebration every Tuesday and Wednesday. Locals and tourists converge on The Park, the new outdoor dining and entertainment district steps away from T-Mobile Arena, every Tuesday and Wednesday from 5 p.m. to 9 p.m. to dance to the tunes of the Tony Marques Band while hopping between lively venues offering $5 beer, wine and shot specials.

Guests can dance with mojitos at the toes of the 40-foot tall Bliss Dance as they listen to violinists Jennifer Lynn and Monica Olivas of electric string quartet group Phat Strad or imbibe a vodka libation while enjoying other forms of live entertainment. Patrons will immerse themselves in an outdoor party customizable for any type of indulgences, cultured or otherwise.

“While the Las Vegas Strip has so many offerings, there has not been a weekly event that brings together our community within a vibrant, outdoor setting,” said Don Thrasher, President of Park Holdings, LLC at MGM Resorts International. “Party at The Park will be the cure for any blues by dancing outdoors to live music, and enjoying the timeless Las Vegas tradition of social drinking with friends and new acquaintances.”

Restaurants participating in Party at The Park include:

Beerhaus – This fun and lively beer garden is highlighted by its outdoor spaces and vantage points of all The Park’s activity. No beer hall is complete without a menu of mouthwatering bites to soak up the suds. Libations are complemented by artisanal eats that are hormone-free and regionally sourced with the bonus of hand-held ease for maximum efficiency. Bar food includes savory roasted sausages and rotisserie sandwiches with premium meats such as porchetta, beef brisket and free-range chicken.

Sake Rok – This theatrical hotspot, open for lunch, dinner and late-night, thrills guests with more than just its array of delicious sushi, Japanese cuisine and private sake label. By night, Sake Rok transforms into a high-profile social dining extravaganza, immersing guests in an experience part culinary, part performance and completely unexpected. Inspired by Japan’s vibrant pop culture and fashion movements, interactive servers invite guests to partake in restaurant-wide karaoke sessions and dance battles.

California Pizza Kitchen – Blending fresh, seasonal ingredients with bold, global inspiration, California Pizza Kitchen (CPK) offers signature hand-tossed, hearth-baked pizzas, inventive main plates, unique pastas and salads, alongside premium wines, craft beers and hand-crafted cocktails. With an outdoor patio, full bar and open kitchen centered around the hearth oven, CPK’s rustic, modern atmosphere is ideal for drinks and small plates before a show, dinner with family and everything in between.

About The Park
An eclectic blend of restaurants, bars and entertainment tucked into rich desert landscaping, The Park is a central gathering place on The Strip’s west side connecting New York-New York and Monte Carlo resorts as well as the new 20,000-seat world-class T-Mobile Arena. Located in the heart of the Las Vegas Strip, the new outdoor destination is a place to relax, discover and explore. For more information, visit www.theparkvegas.com.
