Tucker’s version of the High Roller is made from 10,000 standard LEGO pieces that can be found amongst many LEGO sets on store shelves. Aside from the steel frame; the High Roller model is made entirely out of LEGO bricks with no gluing or cutting.

Once on display in the High Roller Wheel House, guests will be able to view the LEGO wheel daily during the High Roller’s operating hours from 11:30 a.m. to 2:00 a.m. Guests will also be able to see the wheel rotate in the same fashion as the original High Roller.
