Nice little coaster

This is a good little coaster. I would say nice for all ages that can ride it. Not entirely impressed with the staff though. They were ok at best, not rude or anything like that... read more

This is a good little coaster. I would say nice for all ages that can ride it. Not entirely impressed with the staff though. They were ok at best, not rude or anything like that, just kind of going through the motions. We paid a 2 for 1 ride special because we were staying at the hotel. For that price... More

On our last day in Vegas we wanted to try something different. We chose to ride the Big Apple Coaster. It was so much fun. We sat right up front and omg what a thrilling ride. We will definitely go back to ride the Big Apple Coaster again.

$14 well spent. It was amazing but you should have a good neck because the camel backs (up and down really fast) put your neck under big pressure. City view from up there is awesome!

I had not anticipated this roller coaster to be as good as it was, but it was actually really cool. A bit pricey as everything is in Vegas, but good fun!

Not for the faint hearted this roller coaster takes your breath away. We went late at night which added to the trepidation and excitement. For only $14 each it was a bargain. We queued for about 40 minutes but it was definitely worth the wait. A tip to travellers however, make sure you use the lockers on your way in... More

Fun roller coaster which wasnt as expensive as I originally thought however it felt extremely rough, uncomfortable and I almost thought I was going to die.

Upside down with a twist, pretty darn exciting for being at a hotel on the strip. Highly recommend the coaster unless you get dizzy but well worth the ride.

This isn't just a novelty roller coaster because it's part of a hotel. The first drop and ups and downs will have your balls up your throat. I only wish it was longer for the price of admission.

My 11 year old LOVED IT. It was really fun but a bit pricey. The first incline is so steep we were both yelling "what were we thinking?!!" It is quite a drop off from there but you can see A LOT of vegas from this coaster if you can keep your eyes open! There are so many twists and... More

This coaster is not for the faint of heart! Insane ups and downs, twists and turns, and a loop to take you upside down all on the casino roof top. A must for coaster lovers!
