I've been to Vegas four times and never rode the roller coaster so I decided I'd do it this time around. I had a voucher for a free ride from playing MyVegas slots game. I didn't realize how high this roller coaster dropped or the cork-screw upside down part. I just have to say try to hold your head back... More

Took two teenage boys to ride the coaster and they loved it! The wait was not bad at all. The weird thing is that the exit is through the gift shop which was strange and a little awkward getting out. Trying to maneuver through the small store and around customers. There really needs to be seating for those not playing... More

If you measure the success of a roller coaster by the screams, this one rocks! Forget scenic views, you're round in an instant. You'll come to your own conclusions whether $15 represents value for an adrenaline fuelled circuit of the NYNY skyline but there's often a long queue of those that clearly do.

It was a longer ride than expected; kinda 'rickety' for a metal coaster. But, a must-do if you like roller coasters!

I have mixed opinions on the rollercoaster. Firstly the surroundings are great, I love the theming of New York, New York and having a rollercoaster in a hotel is so unique. I feel it's a bit overpriced for $15 and the staff weren't very friendly. The queue was big but you have no idea of this until you pay and... More

One of the best roller coasters I have been on! We used coupons and therefore paid half price each ($7.50). It wizzes through the setting of New York New York, both inside and outside, it has a loop, it goes very fast and you can purchase a souvenir picture at the end of the ride....fantastic!

I was really excited to go on this, but it was far too expensive for what you get, $15 for one ride (although it hurt so much I was glad it only went around once). the restraints need updating as its really uncomfortable when the coaster goes upside down, it also throws you about too much, they say you must...

A very expensive roller coaster and arcade. You pay a high price for one ride. Skip it and take the kids to a theme park with more rides and where you can ride them more than once.

This is a must do when in Vegas. It takes you around New York New York with a great view of the strip. $15 was a bit much for one ride but your in Vegas so have fun. Will for sure do again.

My nephew wanted to do a thrill ride so on our last day whilst my friend hit the slot machines we went on this ride. It cost $15 each and the walk to the loading area was never ending. There are lockers for property inside the ride entrance. Stupid really they take a picture of you before you leave and... More
