“Fun Coaster”
Reviewed 18 June 2014

I'm not even a big roller coaster person, and this was a fun one. The thrills come mostly from the fact that the track is suspended in midair throughout the fake cityscape; there aren't a lot of huge G forces or big drops, but it offers a couple of upside-down twisty turns as it weaves quickly through "Manhattan." It also seems a little rickety, like the whole thing cold fall down at any second — but that's part of its charm. I'm not sure the coaster will survive the 2014 NYNY renovation, though!

“One of my most favorite roller coaster rides ever!”
Reviewed 16 June 2014

This coaster is an amazing ride around a city block which is a miniature replica of New York City, and ends coming inside to the streets of New York City. Incredible ride and well worth the cost. We just drove up to the casino and did valet parking and rode the coaster and checked out the resort...very easy to do when your touring the strip with a vehicle.

“Great coaster”
Reviewed 15 June 2014

Good fun, we went on at night which was cool. Pretty scary ride but it does bang your head around a bit, not in a good way.

“A must do for roller coaster fans”
Reviewed 14 June 2014

The New York New York roller coaster offers a unique ride experience. Where else can you do barrel rolls, loops and extreme corners with the New York skyline on one side and the Las Vegas strip on the other. At times you feel like you're zooming right over Las Vegas Boulevard. It is expensive - $14 for one ride - and the line ups can be long but it's worth it. The kids will love the arcade that is right outside the entrance to the ride (okay, we played bubble hockey and Pac Man challenge).

“Nice Adrenaline Rush”
Reviewed 13 June 2014

Its not every day that you get to go on a roller-coaster that goes in between huge buildings in the middle of a city! It was an excellent ride and gives you the adrenalin rush that you look for on rides such as these! You have an option of buying a single ride or multiple rides. Choose wisely! :) Go for it!
