Thrillride.

A good roller coaster which goes through the new Yorker hotel and over the top giving you a good view of the strip.

Really cool way to see the strip, worth the money. Tip: buy your ticket before you get in line so you can leave your wallet and other valuables completely with a friend or in the lockers provided that cost 50 cents to use

Coaster was way scarier than I expected! I LOVE roller coasters and was very impressed with this one. I'd say it's the best one I have been on in a long time! Must sit in the front. You can wait for the front Seat and I would highly Recommend doing so!

This roller coaster was so much fun. My daughter screamed the whole time, while I laughed! It was not busy when we arrived and we got on without much of a wait. I found the price reasonable, and I wouldn't hesitate to go again!

It might not be the best roller coaster I've ever ridden but it might well have some of the best views. Its really cool to come out of the hotel and see the lights of the strip at night from the top of the coaster. Got the all day pass (free from the myVegas app). The line wasn't too long... 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.
