LAS VEGAS (AP) - Creators of a giant observation wheel on the Las Vegas Strip flipped the lights on Friday in an official sunset ceremony, although passengers are not yet able to board the attraction.

The 550-foot High Roller is the world's tallest observation wheel and features spherical glass pods that can hold up to 40 people each. The new addition to the Las Vegas skyline is expected to begin operating later this year. It will be lit every night from sunset to 4 a.m.

The wheel is part of Caesars Entertainment's $550 million LINQ development.
