Fun ride.

Our kids really wanted to ride the coaster, so we stopped in to try it out. The wait was less than 5 minutes, but the price of $14/ride was a little steep. It's a fun thing to do... read more

This roller coaster is cool for the views and my plan was to ride it once in the daytime and once at night. I wish I'd just waited to ride it at night. It tossed me around so much that I had a HUGE BRUISE on my back. A bruise so bad that when my husband put his hand on... More

Our kids are big coaster fans so we crossed this off the to-do list in Vegas. It didn't take very long to get on the ride and it was very thrilling to ride along the strip. Price was $14 a ride and you can usually find a $2 coupon in one of the tourist books. Also did play a few... More

My teens were desperate to do this so it was a no-brainer to give them a day pass ($25.day vs $14 for ONE ride!) They went on it about 14 times spanning day and night and was probably the best value thing we did all holiday and the one they had most fun with. Some of the ride is indoors... More

My college-aged daughters wanted to ride it, so we did. I felt like my brain was literally shaken, but I did it. The coaster is expensive, but the line was short, and we walked right on. I won't be doing it again. Even the girls felt the ride was a little too rough.

Our kids really wanted to ride the coaster, so we stopped in to try it out. The wait was less than 5 minutes, but the price of $14/ride was a little steep. It's a fun thing to do one time, and our kids really enjoyed it, but it's not something we need to go back and do again.

If you like rollercoasters then this one is great ... it's fast! However I do think it is a lot of money for a rollercoaster ride!

There is something for everyone to play and enjoy at the arcade and roller coaster. On our first visit I stayed with our youngest while the rest of the family rode the coaster. Now he's tall enough to ride it and we both loved it! Riding the roller coaster is definitely a bucket list thing to do!

Great roller coaster. Our family of four rode in the front two seats. We bought the family package which came with two photos. Not cheap but a better deal if you decide you like the silly photo of hair flying and mouths open screaming. If your eyes are open it would offer fun views of the Vegas Strip. Can't say... More

Fun ride. Line moved very fast for the amount of people their that night (alot). Be ready to be jostled around some on the ride. Bumpy in places. Cost was about right.

More of a thrill than I had anticipated for a coaster that is part of a hotel. It was an exciting ride and flying alongside the New York "buildings" added to the fun. My son and I rode this on a Friday afternoon and there was virtually no line. it was a bit rough. It bumps around more than most... More
