We went just as the sun was setting. It was fabulous! The view is amazing and the ride was so smooth. They took us around 6 times, therefore you got the chance to see all around. They take your picture at the beginning and they were reasonably priced if you wanted to purchase them at the end. I would recommend it for everyone!
The gondolas are air conditioned and heated to keep you comfortable through the ride. They bring you around 5 times and all in all it's about 20-30 minute ride depending on how many people are getting on/off. To State the obvious, if you are afraid of heights do not ride this. The sides are all glass and it feels like you are sitting on the edge of the world. They do have a VIP gondola with a glass floor.
The gondolas are air conditioned, the ride is very smooth. You are taken through 4 or 5 revolutions that all last about 6 minutes each. It's a great way to see the sites. We love to go at night to see the strip lit up all the way down.
I most of the time don't like rides like this one that's about like a ferres wheel but this ride is nothing like that. It is so smooth and soft. You barely no u are moving. It's enclosed u can see everything from up there. I have rode it several times and never had a panic attic so far on it.
Reasonably priced unless you opt for the VIP package. They offer a military discount which was appreciated. The cars were very comfortable and the attendants we're very helpful getting my 88 year old mom in and out of the ride. The view was awesome!!!
