I have been on The Ride twice. Each time has been a fun experience. My 10 year old and 14 year old both loved it. It is entertainment and a little tour info. If you want a full tour NYC experience, this is probably not for you. This is good, loud, fun.

I will be honest. I only did The Ride because it was a free attraction with the New York Pass. I was unsure what to expect when we got on the specially adapted bus. But I can honestly say that it was an excellent and entertaining experience, made all the better by the contribution of Scott, who works on the bus. He is a complete nut (in an entertaining way), and he had me laughing for most of the trip. give it a try, you won't be disappointed.

Oh my goodness, what a fun fabulous experience with The Ride! Right from the start, the entertaining and hilarious hosts welcomed us and got us laughing - and we kept laughing and learning the whole way through! There were musicians and dancers, too - but I won't ruin the surprises! My daughter and I thoroughly enjoyed this Ride on our first night in Manhattan - a perfect way to start our amazing mother/daughter adventure! Thank you!
