    We really enjoyed our visit at RiseNY. It was on a weekday in the afternoon and it was almost empty. We used our Go City pass and had no issues. The first thing is the documentary film about NYC history with some really good effects. You end up feeling like you are in an actual NY subway. After that, you walk through the museum where there are lots of interesting facts to read and cool exhibits to see. You are rewarded at the end by going on a soaring journey over NYC using a simulator ride that makes you feel like you are actually flying around the city. You will also smell different scents and receive small splashes of water during the ride. It really was enjoyable and the whole experience took us less than 90 minutes to finish.

    Note that this is located in the wrong place on Trip Advisor. It’s a great venue for activities and for people that enjoy sports.

    This is the highly controversial ice rink that is known as the Trump or the Woolman Rink. Believe many of the workers did not get paid.

    The talent was excellent! A very diverse group of artists. The drinks were fine and I recommend the fries for a snack while laughing.

    The Escape Game (NYC) was GREAT, one of the BEST I’ve ever done! We did The Heist room and were partnered with four other people who were all just as into the game as we were! The puzzles were clever, technical, and we had so many “OMG” moments when we solved some of them! We escaped with 10 minutes to spare! I will definitely go to any escape rooms in the country by this company! Go! You won’t regret it!

    Our adult family has been to many escape rooms. The “Dig” room was one of our all-time favorites. Excellent set design. Very good, multi-level puzzles. Clues are given by the Clue Master instead of asking questions. Very enjoyable time for everyone. Would certainly go back to try their other rooms.

    This was a sharp game packed with innovative puzzles and very few boring padlock. We had two experienced played and "saved the word" with one minute to spare which is ideal. The website claims it's for 2-10 people but I would imagine a lot of
    gridlock around each puzzle, because the entire game was linear. Also communication was key!

    I'd give it near perfect score if he receptionist (brown hair early 20s?) had not been so rude when checking us in. However, we had a different guy who ran our game who was pleasant and helpful.

    Great area for younger kids with the swings and slides. Bigger kids and bored parents can frighten their parents/partners by climbing on the huge rock formations. Worth an hour.

    Took the NY Bar Exam in this location. It was very spacious. Despite how many people where there, did not feel too hot nor too cold.

    There are some negatives as pointed out by alot of other reviews, queues are long and the whole process of getting tickets, filling in waivers and getting skates and lockers is the most disorganised mayhem I've witnessed. With some organisation it really could be seemless.
    BUT once out on the ice it was everything we'd hoped it would be, making memories with our teenagers spending Christmas day ice skating in Central Park, the only downside was when they clear the ice, as when it's time to get back on it takes ages to get everyone back on the ice, maybe having two entrances onto the ice would be beneficial.

    My 6-year old loves this park! Especially because it had water on a hot afternoon & lots of children to play with. He was so excited about all the secret passages, climbing & other activities.
