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 that miracle pill. I've been on a lot of roller coasters, but... More

My 14 year old daughter rode this at night by herself and loved it. It goes upside down twice and goes along the strip.

Fantastic ride that goes around and in and out of the hotel. Loops and not so subtle twists my wife started screaming during the initial fastr high climb and did not stop until th eride did! I loved it

I understand that this roller coaster is an iconic part of New York and Vegas, but it is so expensive! Normally I wouldn't mind but the line took hours and the ride was incredibly short :(

I went on this ride with my teenage daughter and my dad. It was an experience! Fast, plenty of dips and rolls. It was not too short either for the money. Definitely a great memory for all three of us. We all screamed, laughed and cried. Such fun.

While we were staying in the New York New York, we rode the roller coaster. It is a great one. Great views of Vegas while on it. I have read that it is a bumpy ride, but I didn't notice that at all. $14 for a single ride. You can buy your picture that they take at the end, 2... More

It's a cool ride. A touch dated but Much faster than the disney land rides. However the safety shoulder braces are very harsh and will knock your head, neck and back about like a rag doll. I feel sorry for tall broad shouldered people.
