We love roller coasters. This was good. Being outside on the strip made it better than the actual ride. I have been on MANY better coasters. Plus the wait was over 30 minutes. Good to say you have done it, not much more than that.

Waw! This ride was one of the best I ever done! It is located in NYNY hotel and while on the ride you can also enjoy view of the "New York" city. The coaster is quite scary but in a good way, how the roller coaster is supposed to be. Definitely one the "musts" in Vegas!

My friends and I went on this ride after a few days of watching people riding it. It was a little rough but the best fun I've had in a long time, worth the ride as they stay.

As soon as I saw it, I said "must do". $14 was worth it (another $7 if you want a re-ride) A 10 minute line wait. A bit rough and a bruise to prove it but thoroughly enjoyed very minute. Would defiantly do it again when next in LV.

Is a good ride and if you intend to ride more than once them a day pass for a few dollar more is worth it. When I went first time it was closed due to winds. The next day it was open and short lines to get on which was good as it was a weekend. The ride is similar... More

I think the New York New York Rollercoaster is one of the best in the world..this is based on it's height and intial drop. Highly recommended experience, also great if you go at night time. Try and get there before the crowds. If visting Vegas this is a must do. Make sure you enjoy a congratulatory drink at The Nine... More

I'm a roller coaster lover and the idea of being on one whipping around and through a building along the Vegas strip was pretty enticing. My friend and I started our day on this at least twice while we were in Vegas.

This roller coaster was beyond awesome. I absolutely LOVE rides and this one took my breath (and my voice) away. It did feel a little rough at times, but that made it better! Definitely recommend

You have to ride this coaster at least once. My wife and I rode it and had a blast but only rode it once. That was enough for us but let me tell you, it's a blast. The first thing out your "hanging" on the tracks with nothing but air around you as you go down the first hill. I... More

My husband and I bought an all-day pass for the NY NY Rollercoaster. We road 5 times each during the day and after dark. It's a decent ride with a couple stomach-lurching drops, a loop and barrel roll. It was a rough ride, though. We woke up the next morning with bruised shoulders from the shoulder restraints that weren't padded... More
