I just went on this coaster for the first time this month, it was so painful. It's not worth your time or money, i recommend The Adventuredome, better coasters and less painful.

This roller coaster is not the largest or longest. Yet this coaster has some of the craziest stuff on it. Loops into the only 180 degree heartline. It is a real coaster. 14 per ride is worth the trip

I have to say I chose to try this to please my girlfriend at the time as I was expecting a kiddie ride. I ended enjoying the ride a lot. It's also a great view from the top.

Never thought a small coaster would be that fun! When you had a second, you could actually see a view of the strip! Nice excitement for a nice small price! Bring your GoPro! Your phone gets locked up.

The wait to get on the roller coaster is worth the view you get to see. The ride was short and very bumpy for the price we paid for it. We did the ride in the night, I wanted to do it again during the day to just see how the city looks without the lights.

The arcade is nothing special .. There weren't many people in there and it seemed like just an entrance to the rollercoaster. The ride is $14, which is pretty expensive for one person .. However, the view is great. You can see the entire strip, as well as the mountains behind all of the craziness that is Las Vegas! It's... More

One ride costs $14 so that is a little steep for me. That being said, it is about par for the course for Las Vegas attractions. There is a great view on the way up to the top of the first hill. The ride itself is a decent length, with two loops and the second loop also having a sideways... More

This ride has one of the worst restraints I've ever seen. There are these padded bars that pull down right above your shoulders. They are in a weird spot. I kept my head back as much as I could for the whole ride but my neck kept hitting the bars going back and forth. It was very painful. It's been... More

This is an excellent roller coaster. The ride begins inside the New York, New York casino. You then go outside and ride up the side and back of the hotel, about 20 stories up. The first drop is very steep. You then through two complete loops and a corkscrew. A few more smaller drops and the ride ends back inside... More
