Call me pessimistic but wouldn't it be funny with in a few years of it opening that casinos build hotels so tall that it blocks the view of this wheel -- and all riders won't be able to see past the towers it is surrounded by.

I think Vegas could support two wheels, but not in their current locations. The High Roller has a very good location and will get a lot of foot traffic. Skyvue won't get a lot of foot traffic and will struggle to get folks down there. They will be the lower-cost alternative, but I don't know if that will pay the bills. If the wheels were in more comparable locations, then I think they could both do fine.

The pods rotate while the wheel revolves? I wonder where the drunk douchebags and bagettes are going to barf. Probably on someone's shoes.

I'm wondering how long it takes to load and unload all the pods before the wheel continuously spins, and like you say Histo, to check each pod for puke piles.

I think they just mean it rotates to keep the floor level. What would be the point of spinning it too?

No, from what I read, the pod actually turns separately while the wheel goes around. That will give you a 360 degree view at without having to walk to another part of the pod you are in.
