The entrance for this ride is inside New York Hotel.I took a single ride ticket for 14$ and it's a 3 and half minute ride.My goodness water came out of my eyes and it was just awesome.The ride was so fast that I couldn't even relax for a second.They take you all up and down really fast.Superb.

good to experience the ride, good value and only queued for 10minutes, main down fall is the ride comfort is poor as my head and arms banged the sides a couple of times. You seem to spend the majority of the time on the ride trying to prevent yourself from getting hurt then the ride is over! I did it... More

Ok, so I've been on this once and don't ever have to do it again. I'm so glad I took a Dramamine first because I was thrown around like a rag doll during this ride and probably would have puked my guts up afterwards if I hadn't taken it. I've been on a lot of roller coasters, but I don't... More

We were looking forward to the roller coaster. She was nervous and so was I. Once we started it was hard not to notice how rough it was but looked forward to the first drop. I think our stomach was 5urned into a knot... which was the fun. However, I truly felt like a pin ball as we were bounced... More

Firstly would like to say I love rollarcoasters and have been on many all over the world. I was really looking forward to this one, even though a number of reviews said it was rough etc. Well rough is an understatement! From the beginning of this ride when you go down the first dip all the way to the end,... More

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
