One of a kind tour bus with angled seating!

Ticket Purchasing Tip: They added the "front row guaranteed" option on tickets due to fighting for seats on the RIDE, not the TOUR. I don't think it is worth it to pay extra for the front row for the TOUR, but probably is for the...More

Distraction attraction winner!

I saw the bus in Times Square and thought it looked like a fun activity to squeeze in between other staples while in NYC. The thought of getting off the street, putting our feet up and being entertained was nice. We didn’t expect to have...More

Yes they are. I would pass on this overpriced ‘tour’ as the arrogant owners are chronically oblivious to the shortcomings of this tourist trap.

During the ride, you don't go into the park, but you will ride by the park and see it from the street.
