I ride the Big Apple Coaster once every time I go to Las Vegas, five times so far. The ride is fast, fun, and just a little bit scary, just as any good coaster should be. The cost is only $14, less if you buy an all day pass. The only bad thing about this coaster ride is that's its... More

Bought the $57 value package for 3 attractions; which includes this ride! For the price, you get unlimited rides and a "fast pass" to the front of the lines. Entry attendants were inattentive; the ride feels rough in comparison to the some rides in Disney or Magic Mountain, so I rode it once; but the experience of it going around... More

Had it not been for the discount that patrons get for staying at the hotel, it wouldn’t be worth it. We had just come back from a major amusement in So. Cal and we wanted to ride this coaster. It was a great ride but it was very short. The line wasn’t long at all but for the price of... More

I love rollercoasters, and this one was super fun! The line was really fast and didn't take very long to get through. The coaster itself is very jerky so if you are wearing earrings, I suggest taking them out and putting them in one of the lockers available (which if you also have a purse or sunglasses you'll have to...

Decided to do this after walking by and really glad I did. This is a really fun coaster that goes around the outside of the casino and it has a loop.

Is not for the money, but when you love the rollercoasters you like to get the ride more than twice, but at the price you preffer to get dizzy by drinks than by this rollercoaster.

This coaster is rough compared to the bunch of other coasters I have done. The ride is a bit pricy. However, it is worth the experience in Las Vegas.

Exciting! Invigorating! Love this roller coaster!! Love the indoor / outdoor of it - especially at night with all of the lights on the strip.
