Super rollercoaster, good arcade for kids

We decided to do this rollercoaster as we had MyVegas points to use. Prior to this we had been on the Stratosphere rides, and in my opinion this was far scarier! Not sure if it's... read more

I love roller coasters, especially fast ones that flip a lot. This roller coaster slows down frequently. Also, it was so jerky the entire time that I didn't even ride it a second time even though I paid for unlimited riding. I do not have any medical issues and have never felt this way before about a roller coaster. Very... More

We decided to do this rollercoaster as we had MyVegas points to use. Prior to this we had been on the Stratosphere rides, and in my opinion this was far scarier! Not sure if it's because I'm quite a small person but all I did was get bashed about in my seat. However I did still come off it with... More

I like the arcade and coaster for a couple of reasons: 1-it gives the kids (and more families bring their kids than I imagined) a place to hang out. 2-It is a separate area away from the casino. You have to walk to the back of the building and go upstairs to get to it. In other casinos, the kids... More

After visiting Las Vegas 7 times, I've always wanted to try the NYNY Roller Coaster and glad we did on this occasion. The queue was quite long to ride it but was well worth it. Been on loads of roller coasters and thought that this was a really good one. A little pricey at £10 or $14 each but it... More

My husband and I rode it several times. Twice during the day and once at night. I recommend the night ride. It is cool seeing the city at night especially from a roller coaster! There are coupons/specials so look for them before you buy your tickets!

We rode the roller coster basically to say we did. It was okay. Nothing to extreme. Not the ride if you are really looking for a thrill. Would be a good one for youngsters.

it’s the world’s largest amusement ride. It thrilled me and made me wanting to experience the adrenaline rush again! It has some of the world's highest rides. The rides will give you goosebumps. This place is surely not for the light hearted. The memories of this place gives me a adventures feeling even today.

This is in no way a knock on this ride. As a thrill ride junkie, I was very excited about getting on this ride for the first time when I rode it in May 2015. Although it was still a great ride, it definitely needs to be refurbished. I found it to be fairly rough considering that it is a... More

Great coaster! We went at night and think it adds to the thrill. Somewhat short, but packed with thrills and excitement! Highly recommended and not too expensive at about $15 per person. They also have an all day pass available. Plenty of fun to be had at the arcade also.

Thank Robert C
