High Roller is also available for field trips during the school year, which lets children explore design and engineering while riding the 550-foot observation wheel.

The trips also include classroom instruction prior to the High Roller visit:

  • Students in grades K-2 will describe and model their favorite kind of Ferris wheel during the classroom portion.
  • Those in grades 3-5 will be asked to design a new attraction for the Las Vegas Strip that is safe, cost-effective and energy efficient.
  • Students in grades 6-8 will study the sum forces acting upon the Ferris wheel that enable it to rotate continuously.
  • High school students will focus on the full design of a Ferris wheel by creating models, safety protocols and a full operation plan for the structure.
