Wish we could have seen it and rode it but I GUESS it was closed for the season but nobody told us that when we booked and pre-paid the trip last November! VERY DISAPOINTING

I reviewed the Adventuredome and the roller coasters there were a bit lacking. This, on the other hand, fully satisfied us. A one time ride won't do it so get a pass and enjoy this a few random times scattered throughout your day to keep you on your toes and get your money's worth. Probably not right after you are...

Great coaster very smooth as we'll so no whiplash of the neck like you get with some roller coasters, it's a lot higher than it looks and the climb up feels like a lifetime!! On the flip side it's a great view from up there.. We stayed at the hotel so we got 2 for 1 admission between 11-12am and... More

Great roller coaster and a must try if you are a coaster fan. Personally think this is the best part of the NY NY hotel. Remember to check the height requirements before you go...we had a little one who couldn't ride because he was a couple inches too short of the 54" requirement. Also check online before you go for...

It's actually much less freaky than it looks from the street. Definitely not to be missed if you are a roller coaster aficionado. Our two teenage daughters (13 and 15) loved it!

Also I found the attraction a bit pricey , it was a nice experience to ride in between the huges buildings. The view is stunning , will not recommend for young children as there is a lot of sensation .

After many visits to Las vegas we plucked up courage to go on the roller coaster at New York New York. My wife screamed her way round and never opened her eyes while I clenched my teeth and hung on tight. After saying all that we loved it and are glad we took on the challenge and ignored the screams... More

Used our power pass to ride this almost everyday we were in Las Vegas. I thought it was one of the best ones I have been on. It wasnt a quick one. It does bounce you around quite a bit, so back or neck problems you might not want to do this, I loved the variety of moves the ride... More

Fun time-killer. Be aware that they're nazi's about having things in your pockets. If the see anything coming out of your pockets when you get in the coaster, they'll make you get out and put it in a locker

I love roller coasters so it was a no-brainer that I would go on the coaster at NY NY. I sucked it up and paid the $14 for a ticket (plus 50 cents for a mandatory locker). The staff is woefully apathetic and made no attempt to move the line along, instead opting for socializing over quick loading. I opted... More
