THE RIDE Theatrical Sightseeing Bus Tour

by The Ride Duration 1h 15m+ Free cancellation available No booking or credit card fees
per traveler Price is $69

With singing, dancing, and special effects, THE RIDE is a raucous and entertaining sightseeing tour like no other. Take a seat for a bus ride through Manhattan and Times Square as the Big Apple lights up and only-in-NYC moments come to life before your eyes.

Climb aboard THE RIDE and prepare to be dazzled—the stadium seats on this bus face sideways, so you've got an unencumbered view out onto the vibrant city streets. With 40 plasma-screen monitors, a state-of-the-art sound system, and 3,000 LED lights on board, THE RIDE is a moving theater, and you're in the audience and in on the action at the same time.

Ride through midtown Manhattan as iconic Big Apple street scenes unfold before you. Feel the floor shake during a simulated ride on New York's storied subway, interact with local New Yorkers on the sidewalk, and be thrilled and surprised by street performers around every corner—break dancers, camera-flashing paparazzi, and even the navy sailor kissing a nurse from Eisenstaedt's famous V-J Day photo make appearances.

As music plays and lights flash, catch glimpses of can't-miss New York landmarks. Gaze out at the towering Art Deco Chrysler Building, the green swath of Central Park, and the central fountain at Columbus Circle.

1/5 Aug 13, 2018

Well worth booking, 90 mins of fast paced slapstick comedy. The rolling backdrop of midtown Manhattan and the lights of Broadway and Times Square are always going to provide a spectacle at night but this is a particularly enhanced way of capturing a unique view of it all. The onboard live commentary and banter is superb but what sets the Ride apart is the addition of regular live street performances interacting with you, the Ride audience, while coping with the bemusement, and at times gentle abuse, of those on the street. Genuinely excellent!

5/5 Aug 01, 2018

It was a wonderful experience, very entertaining and full of surprises and information about the buildings of NY City.
