The world's largest observation wheel towers 550ft above LINQ Promenade. Each of the 28 air-conditioned passenger cabins is enclosed by handcrafted Italian glass. Outside, 2000 colorful LED lights glow from dusk until dawn. One revolution takes about 30 minutes, and each pod can hold 40 guests. From 4pm to 7pm, select pods host the adults-only (21-plus) 'happy half hour' ($35, or $47 after 5pm) with an open bar (read all-you-can-drink) shared between your fellow riders. Things can get messy, fast.

Hint: the southwest corner of each pod affords the best views of the Strip (that's to the right of the door as you enter). Remember, sharing is caring.
