Our children loved this rollercoaster, rating it amongst the best they experienced during our 3-week US vacation; which included visits to Disneyland and Six Flags, so this is high praise indeed.

The rollercoaster at New York New York is a fun and unique way to enjoy the Vegas Strip. It offers a different view of the strip. It is best enjoyed at night time, when the lights on the strip are in full gear. I am a coaster enthusiast and this coaster didn't disappoint. It has the speed, height, and air... More

I enjoy this coaster very well. Make sure you put your stuff in the lockers before you go on the ride. If you don't what to lose any of your stuff. I was on it on my first night when i got there day off.

My kids went on it twice and enjoyed it , they said it was better at night , if you go back it's half price for the second visit during the same day .The queues were v short both times .Its around 2and a half minutes long so not cheap but worth doing

It's a short roller coaster but it was fun. It is a bit rough and your head does bounce around a little bit but it's not so bad. The view from the top before it falls it pretty great. It's rough but for the price and fun it provides the coaster is worth it

Ok but not a very long ride. It was over too quick. Fast but uncomfortable ride. Not bad for a 'hotel attraction' though.
