William F. Harrah College of Hospitality Administration: Student Accessibility Comments:

The overall experience at the High Roller was wheelchair accessible. The trip from the parking lot to the front door can be very steep depending on which of the 2 routes you take. Use the north entrance ramp to avoid steps. Once arriving to the front door, we were offered an escort. This made the way up to the top very accessible. When entering the attraction or cabin, the staff stops the wheel and provides a small WC hydraulic lift then temporary ramp for the wheelchair. Inside the cabin there is surprisingly enough room to move around with our group of 4 and another group of 2, but it was difficult to do with a drink in one hand independently. The bar inside the cabin was not wheelchair accessible. It was too high and the wheelchair was not able to tuck under it, but was very easy to communicate with the bartender. The exit from the cabin was rough due to poor training possibly, but still accessible.
