LAS VEGAS (FOX5) -

The 549-foot High Roller observation wheel marked a milestone Tuesday while also rewarding a few lucky patrons.

The attraction that flanks the Las Vegas Strip celebrated 100 days in operation by offering free rides to the first 100 people who showed up at the wheel Tuesday morning.

The attraction said all 100 tickets were cleared in 90 minutes beginning at 7:45 a.m.

The High Roller, which serves as the focal point of Caesars Entertainment's Linq entertainment district, welcomed its first customers in March. Since then, the attraction was officially recognized by the Guinness World Records as the world's tallest observation wheel.

The wheel also has made almost 4,000 full rotations since opening.

A ticket for the gradual 30-minute spin, which includes a view of the Las Vegas Strip, is priced at $24.99 during the day and $35 at night.

Representatives for the High Roller noted, though, folks with a local Nevada ID can get 50 percent off on tickets every Tuesday.

The attraction is open from 10 a.m. to 2 a.m. daily.
