High Roller did not go very fast. In fact, it did not drop much either. If it were built anywhere else, it would be considered fairly dull. The thrill of the ride came from its location high above Las Vegas! While on the coaster, I watched a Boeing 737 turn onto final for McCarren International Airport. The amazing thing was that the 737 was at a lower altitude than I was here on the Stratosphere Tower!
