Today's Question Of The Day on Anthony's site has a fairly detailed review.

Read it while you can.

Superstitions are silly, childish, irrational rituals, born out of fear of the unknown. But how much does it cost to knock on wood? 😁 Note that the same could be said for Religion. I.E. Religion is nothing more than organized superstition. 🤗

I can foresee a potential problem when a rider experiences a major medical emergency (e.g. heart attack, stroke) while riding: it is bound to happen sometime.

A couple questions:

Is there a phone or intercom on board so that a rider can contact the controller and request immediate assistance in the event of an emergency?

Can the speed of the ride be increased to allow the affected person to reach the ground quickly enough to allow the emergency to be successfully addressed?

One would hope the answer is "Yes" to both queries.

Yes, there is an intercom. There is also a removable panel on the floor with emergency supplies. I imagine there is a first aid kit, an AED machine, etc.

I don't know the answer to this one, but I would imagine in an emergency they could stop the boarding/unboarding process at the bottom and then speed up the wheel a bit.

Tickets are $24.95 + $2 service charge, but as usual Caesars has that all backwards. Obviously, they should advertise "FREE TICKETS!" and then tack on a $26.95 service charge.

We are 30 minutes or more away from medical help much of our lives, this is no different.

Not in the heart of Las Vegas.

I raise the question as fodder for personal injury / negligence attorneys.

It would likely be 15 minutes best case scenerio for a paramedic crew to to get to your room in a casino. 30 minutes for them to arrive could easily occur depending on traffic. How long do you think you would wait for paramedics on New Years Eve when the strip is closed and it is wall to wall people.

I watched a stranger having a heart attach in a restaurant in the forum shops many years ago. Medical was at least 20 minutes maybe longer.
