I (reluctantly) rode this with my 10 year old thrill seeking son, I'm not a huge fan of heights so that really upped the scare factor for me....my son of course thought it was great. It is $14 per person per ride however if you make a purchase in the Hershey's store you will receive a 2 for 1 pass... More

It's surprisingly good as a roller coaster and cool view from the area. It's $15 per person and you can re-ride it for $7. You must have coins to pain for the lockers (50cents). The front seats are definitely a must and it's a exciting ride.

Venture to the top levels of hotel New York [squared] and you find a throwback carnival to coney island. The Manhattan express is a world class coaster that rises over the strip. it seems weird to board a clickity clackity car that rises out over the strip and drops into a full loop, but it's a must do experience if...

So, I was looking forward to riding this rollercoaster all day long. Finally we made it, and I was soooo excited. After the first drop and turn, I felt my neck tighten and upper back. I thought, meh it's just a little bumpy, but it just got worse and worse as the ride went on. I was almost unable to... More

the line was kind of long, but totally worth it! we got lucky and got the front car and wow! what a ride! Best deal is to get the all day ticket, then you can skip the line when you come back through! Ride it again and again and again!

It was fast, had some fun loops, and something I've never experienced (a half twist to half loop). It was a bit expensive ($14) but was worth it. There was not a long line. I got on the ride in less than 10 minutes.

One of the best coasters I have been on. A huge drop to start you off this coaster goes around the outside of New York New York. There is the heartline roll and plenty of take your breath away drops. You must do this coaster when you are in vegas.

If you can stand having to walk through one of the cheapest-looking and loudest arcades, you might enjoy the fast ride of the Big Apple Coaster (formely named the Manhattan Express). If you're not riding the coaster, you will not find anywhere to sit and wait for your companions. This facility is really dated, and the coaster was built in... More

I've been on over 120 different roller coasters. I love roller coasters! While far from the worst roller coaster I've rode, this simply isn't a very good roller coaster. for its height, it seems a little slow. It offers a rattly, uncomfortable ride and its overpriced!
