this was a poor roller caster. the price was $14.00 a person and after you get done with the first ride they tell you that you can ride it again for $7.00. It took about 3 mins from start to finish. It was really bumpy and jarred you back and fourth hard.

Went around dinner time on a Friday. Very reasonable line. It is important to keep your head back as stated on the seat back instructions. Did have a decent view of the strip and surrounding properties during the ride. More extensive experience than it appears from the front of the New York New York. Hard core about not taking phones...

Very few hotels in the world have Rollercoasters in the hotel so I had to go on this when I was in Vegas. Sadly its really uncomfortable and jerks you about at every bend, its feeling a bit tired and has only one loop and a corkscrew. I think the ride is good for the novelty like the taxi cab... More

Lots of loops and brilliant views. Would have wanted to ride it a few times but pretty expensive like everything in Vegas!

My son Myles & I went on this ride before heading to the Stratosphere. We loved it! The line wasn't too long, and the ride itself wasn't too short. It was a different experience to ride next to hotel highrises. It was a great & fun ride!

This wasn't the scariest one I ever rode, yet it had a couple of good loops and drops. Costs 14$ without discount, on Sunday afternoon a small queue of 10-smth ppl + an additional line afterwards for the first row seats - a good option since view on others is quite limited. 50c locker for your bags and other stuff....

Found a 2 for 1 coupon on line. I wasn't sure they would honor it, but they did. Nice to save when you can on the strip! On a Thursday no line at all! My daughter & husband said it was very fun

When walking around the strip you can hear people screaming from New York New York roller coaster - when you go on it you will know why! Not for the faint hearted

I went on this because it's a roller coaster inside of a hotel/casino. Sounds cool in theory, right? Wrong. The whole coaster is outside...and it hurts!!! I've been on wooden rollercoasters that have a smoother ride. Wouldn't return and not worth $15.
