Soon after our stop at the Gold and Silver Pawn Shop we pulled into Circus Circus.
Circus Circus is the start/end point for the tours. Here you can change buses to go into the Fremont Street Experience, another route to malls and shopping and a return to the Strip.
We had about a 20 minute wait which meant it was approaching lunch time. We road the Big Bus until Bally’s where we hopped off for lunch at Johnny Rockets in the Food Court.
Tummy’s full, we walked to the High roller outside the Linq.
This was familiar territory because Joe and I stayed at the Linq last year when we were in Vegas. The bus stop for the High Roller is closed due to construction and this stop at Bally’s is the closest one currently operating.
Up to now Sandy had been insisting that she didn’t want to ride the High Roller. Sandy doesn’t like heights. The High Roller isn’t like a normal Ferris Wheel with an open seat. It’s an enclosed observation pod. Very Star Wars !
But I wasn’t having any luck getting my point across. She had to see it to understand and once she walked under the huge pods she decided that it might not be such a bad experience.
The whole rotation is only 30 minutes and it will be the fastest 30 minutes you’ll ever experience. It didn’t take Sandy long to get comfortable and was soon standing right near the windows to take pictures of the Las Vegas sights.
