Yes this is not the newest or best roller coaster going and it certainly isn't the most comfortable but come on guys a roller coaster starting inside a hotel going around the outside of the hotel and through the casino - you have to do it! We went earlyish in the day so queues weren't bad but we purchased our... More

I love rollercoasters but this one is in need of a refurbishment something fierce. When I first went on it 16 years ago it was awesome. Now it's pale and ... uh, a bit too much play in the bearings for my liking. Go on it once, then get a slice of pizza inside.

The NY NY Rollercoaster is iconic in Vegas so we had to do it. We got tickets through an attractions deal where you pick 3 for $57. We picked the coaster, Secret Gardens and Titanic. The line for the coaster moved pretty quick, about the same as any roller coaster. It was an ok ride. The thing I did not... More

We had a relatively long line to wait in. Unsupervised kids were annoying but overall this is a good rollercoaster. It's on top of the casino but a view is not available. There is no need to ride this more than once. I'm glad we did this

My wife and I did not see the roller coaster route before we went on which was a blessing for her! !!! Thoroughly enjoyed it and was a brilliant surprise. (Military discount made it even better to what it was.)

Worth it once just to say you did it. Little spendy at $14 a person for one round. They do have other options but if you know the strip you usually won't make it back to the same casino twice in one day.

It was my first rollercoaster ever. I had fun. Some people say it is old and it needs to be updated. I really don't know as I don't have anything to compare with, but it was fun, so much fun. We waited in line for like 25 minutes, which I don't think it is crazy for Vegas.

This is a pretty intense roller coaster. Empty your pockets and brace yourself. It gets quite bouncy! Stunning views. And if you stop at the New York New York you get 2 4 1
