High Roller Happy Half Hour Review

High Roller Happy Hour




High Roller Happy Half Hour is an unforgettable experience offering an open bar and stunning views of Las Vegas.

My experience with Happy Hour on the High Roller at The LINQ Promenade was fantastic! I thoroughly enjoyed the 30-minute ride with an open bar.

The first time I went on the High Roller was with my wife, brother, and sister-in-law.

We chose to go around 5:00 PM on a weekday, there wasn’t much of a line, and we were just starting the night.

The four of us boarded the adults-only pod equipped with a bar cart with about a dozen people. As we started rotating upward, the bartender was quick to serve everybody their first drink.

The View from the High Roller Las Vegas

Once you’re above the parking lot, the first views you’ll see are Ellis Island Hotel & Casino, East Las Vegas, and the surrounding area.

As you climb, the views are stunning. You’ll see the breathtaking mountains and the vast suburbs and get a view behind The Strip.

As we reached the top, the views of The Strip were incredible. Multiple people in the pod had gotten a second (even third) drink.

We enjoyed cocktails and beer while we watched the sunset. We even caught a glimpse of the Bellagio Fountains.

My Impression of the High Roller Open Bar

I was a bit naive my first time doing the happy half hour on the High Roller. I knew it was an open bar, but I didn’t want to push my luck.

I had four cocktails throughout the half-hour-long ride. I was pleasantly buzzed by the time I got off the ride.

It was a great way to start my night. I recommend the Happy Half Hour to anyone looking for a great Las Vegas experience.

If you want to make the most of your Happy Hour on the High Roller at The LINQ, I recommend going at 4:00 PM or near sunset.

In my opinion, after dark, the views aren’t as exciting. It was a great experience. I would definitely recommend it to anyone visiting Las Vegas.

Happy hour on the High Roller at The LINQ is a must-do if you’re looking for a unique way to see Las Vegas.

Is the High Roller Happy Hour worth it?

Yes, the High Roller Happy Hour is absolutely worth it! Visitors can enjoy spectacular views of the Las Vegas skyline from 550 feet in the air, plus all-you-can-drink packages starting at just over $60 per person. A truly unforgettable experience and unbeatable value!

How many drinks will I get during the Happy Half Hour?

You should be able to consume 3 to 5 cocktails during your 30-minute trip on the High Roller.

I’ll never forget my wife and I recommended The LINQ High Roller Happy Hour to some of friends who were visiting us in Las Vegas.

Our plan was to meet up with our friends after their half-hour orbit around the wheel. When their ride was over, we walked over to meet them on The LINQ Promenade.

They were sitting on a bench near the exit with a fresh cocktail in hand. It had turned out that they were dizzy, not from the ride, but from the five cocktails they consumed while on the High Roller.

Needless to say, our friends had a blast and loved the experience.

The cost is about $25 more than the regular ticket. At most bars, that’s two drinks. I definitely recommend happy hour on the High Roller to everyone visiting Las Vegas (especially first-timers).

What cocktails and beers are available on the High Roller?

The bar cart on the High Roller includes a variety of domestic beer, wine, and middle-shelf liquor.

The beers include Bud Light, Miller Lite, and Coors Lite.

The liquor brands are typical well liquors in Las Vegas. They included Jim Beam and Jack Daniels whiskey, Absolute and Skyy vodka, Bacardi and Malibu rum, Beefeater gin, and Sauza tequila.

The cart was loaded with all the popular mixers, crafting the most common well drinks.

Where do I buy tickets for the High Roller Happy Hour?

You can buy your High Roller Happy Half Hour tickets online from The LINQ. I always recommend to buy your tickets in advanced because there are limited open bar tickets available.

Currently, the High Roller Happy Hour tickets cost $62 per person. While it sounds expensive, similar cocktails at The LINQ cost about $15 a piece.

The open-bar Happy Half Hour is a special ticket on the High Roller, which is located on The LINQ Promenade. Here you will find great restaurants, bars, and shops.
