Friday was the last day of our trip, so we wanted to make sure we did the last few things on our wish list. After cleaning up the room and checking out, we decided to get lunch at In-N-Out Burger. Easily one of the best fast food burgers I’ve ever had.
After we fueled up, we decided to take the long walk to take pictures at the famous, “Welcome to Fabulous Las Vegas, Nevada” sign. We had to wait in a pretty long line, but we got our picture. We took the bus back into town, and went straight to the last item we had been wanting to do all week.
The High-Roller Wheel. 28 spherical pods. Each pod weighing 44,000 pounds. Each pod able to hold 40 people. It’s just a really fancy, much better version of a ferris wheel. It goes 550 feet in the air, and travels at a speed of one foot per second. It moved so slow that we got on and off while it was still moving. We bought the package where our pod included a bar with a bartender. OPEN BAR. It was sweet. Any drink you wanted, hundreds of feet in the air, high above the city. We were able to walk around the pod and just admire all of the lights of the city. Floor to ceiling windows allowed us to peer over the night sky. So peaceful up there.
After the High-Roller, we went for dinner at the Tilted Kilt restaurant. I was even able to get them to throw the Toronto Maple Leafs game on the big TV. After dinner, we went and got our bags back at the hotel, and headed for the airport. We left around 11:35 p.m. PST and got home around 6:30 a.m. EST. What a week!
See you soon, Vegas.
