3. Ride the High Roller Ferris Wheel

A relatively new addition to the multitude of things to do in Las Vegas is riding the High Roller Ferris Wheel. No, you don’t have to be an actual high roller to do this. Rather, you can ride in one of the ‘cabins’ where you’ll spend 30-40 minutes going for one full loop.

For a great time, purchase the alcohol package where you get a private bartender to dish out the drinks during the ride.
