Symbol of Sin City: A big wheel of superlatives

biggest wheelParty city in the desert Las Vegas has a new emblem – and what an emblem: High Roller is not just the biggest Ferris wheel in the world, but also Las Vegas’ top landmark. And as befits the city of gamblers, lovers, Elvis fans and party animals, once darkness falls, the 167m / 550 ft big wheel lights up the night with a brilliant spectrum of colours. Lighting specialists Martin Professional can claim the credit.
One of the greatest challenges was to offer visitors a unique experience from within the passenger cabins as well as from differing points and perspectives outside. Martin Professional’s Tripix range proved to be the best fit. At the time, they were the only products on the market with a converging light source, meaning the viewer sees exactly the light that the programmer intended. A classical RGB source simply wasn’t an option.
