One of the most thrilling ways to view to the Vegas strip, The Roller Coaster twists, loops, and dives at high speeds. With a backdrop of replicated sights from the Big Apple, including the New York Harbor and the Statue of Liberty, the ride carries the theme of the hotel it accompanies. Keep your eyes open to appreciate the fantastic views as your yellow taxi races across the casino roof. The journey ends in a recreated subway station where you can purchase a souvenir photo of your ride.

  • Fun roller coaster set on top of the New York skyline as part of New York, New York's resort. It's a little rough, but some great turns, loops and whirls. $14 for a ride or $25 for an all day pass whi...  read more »
  • pretty cheap and really good fun. best time to go on is at night, you get a great view of the strip and all the lights! 
  • My husband and his friend rode this ride. $14, a little rough but worth it. Something definitely worth doing. Everyone that rode seemed to enjoy themselves. 
  • I'm a roller coaster junkie. I live in Florida, which means I have access to many large coasters. I've probably ridden every roller coaster in my state. Anyways, what I'm trying to say is that I have enough experience to say that this ride was not what I expected it to be. It was EXTREMELY rough and bumpy. I got off the ride feeling like I'd been beat up and with a terrible headache. Still, I don't regret riding it. It's definitely a Vegas landmark, and something to check off the bucketlist. If you're gonna ride it, I recommend sitting closer to the front so you don't get that whiplash.
  • I was looking forward to ride this roller coaster and willing overlook the $14 price, but it was definitely NOT worth it. I was actually scared halfway through that I would come out with an injury it was that bumpy and painful. Vegas is good for a lot of things, this roller coaster is not one of them. Don't waste your money.
  • Fun, but not worth $14. Roller coaster was fun and thrilling, but the ride was short and extremely bumpy. I got off the roller coaster with a headache because your head bangs side to side on the seat because of how rough and bumpy it is.
  • Queue was long, and unorganized. Roller coaster was fun! But a little rough on the neck and shoulders. Friend had pain in his neck the next day
  • A lot of fun! Try it at night for the great views. They require that cellphones and all other items go in a locker. The lockers come before you buy your tickets, so bring 2 quarters for the locker.
