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!

This roller coaster is a bit different because it winds inside and outside the building (New York New York Casino). During busy times there can be a long wait, but worth it for the thrill of twists, turns and speed. Try an all day pass, and go during the daylight then night time hours.

Bee vegas twice and bought the roller coaster ticket twice! It's a must go on. It's a bit rough on the body and you will end up with bruises on your body but it is defo worth it. Great views from up there!!!

People ask 'why do you like Vegas?', well, as well as the great food, fantastic casinos, fabulous shows... well where do I stop... it has some of the best Rides in the world too. NYNY Manhattan Express is unique as it starts INSIDE the hotel and goes outside, plenty of loops and great speed, excellent ride. Also check out Circus... More

I think the last time I went on this roller coaster was 7 years ago and I have been itching to go on it again since. I couldn't remember what it was like but I'm so glad I went. I didn't have much time but if I did, I'd even opt for the all day pass to check out the... More

It is worth a visit not too expensive and rather good overall but its very noisy and bumpy in need of an update to compete with modern coasters. Would do it again but was not something i loved in Vegas to be honest so much better things to do.

This is absolutely the best coaster in Vegas. With the NASCAR coaster shut down, the Stratosphere coaster beats you senseless and Primm is too far away, I guess it does not have a lot of competition, but still, this coaster is great. For the short length of the run, they pack in fantastic thrills. Loops, inverts, rolls. This coaster has... More
