Vegas is at it again. This time it's the world's largest ferris wheel ride. It will take you up 55 stories. I'm not sure how it will go over, especially at $30 a ride. Would anyone in here go on it?

The article says it's located across the street from Caesar's but I believe it's actually behind the old Imperial Palace (which is now called the Quad). Anybody know for sure?

I've spent $15*2 for two people to go on a shittier one. Wouldn't do it again.
12. When menstruating, use a product that right for your menstrual flow. A tampon too big can irritate and develop fungus. A product left in too long can cause bacteria or fungus build up. Products can be changed at least every 4 hours. Except when sleeping, they can be left in for the night

Each pod will hold 40 people who will be allowed to drink but not smoke. Each single revolution of the wheel takes 30 minutes.

To be fair, I would totally spend $30 on this if they'll let me drink up there.

I would spend the $30 once but it would be considerably less enjoyable in a pod with 40 other people (unless they all shared my plan to ejaculate down onto the streets below once the wheel hit its apogee, in which case, **** whoever's down below. That ain't rain... )

If people in Vegas are willing to pay $500-$1000 for a hooker I'm sure they will pay $30 for a Ferris wheel

And by people I mean me.

I just didn't realize that was your thing.


Edit: I am by no means knocking it.

It happened once during a dark time in my life haha. Took a girl from the Rhino back to my hotel. This was one of the hottest girls ever, it was money well spent.
