Full description
When New York entrepreneurs and creative types join forces, ultramodern entertainment in the form of a 45-foot long bus with stadium seats, surround sound, and street performances ensues. Take this interactive 75-minute bus ride and see New York from an entirely unique perspective. It turns the streets of New York into a stage, bringing entertainment and tourism together to create a city experience that everyone, from tourists to native New Yorkers, can enjoy. The RIDE drives through New York and features performances in front of sights, such as Grand Central, 42nd Street, Central Park, and more. It’s Broadway without the limitations of a stationary theater, and a bus tour with a theatrical twist. Each of the mobile theaters hold 3 rows of stadium seats, plus the most modern audio and visual technology, including speakers that bring inside sounds out onto the street, enabling RIDErs to go “On Air” and interact with the city. The RIDE is also available in Japanese on the third Thursday of every month and in Spanish on the first Thursday of every month - both at 7:15 PM and 8:45 PM. While THE RIDE’s performances and videos remain in English, these departures of the RIDE feature one of your two comedic hosts translating in Japanese or Spanish.

    Didn’t really know what to expect but I can highly recommend it. It was such fun. I went with my sister and daughter who is 28, so very different ages and we all loved it. My daughter was blown away with the experience. The staff made it fun but at the same time made it informative.

    It was really fun except for the fact the bus came 30 minutes late and ended 45 minutes late over all. It wasn't anyone's fault because it is nyc with horrible traffic so I don't want to complain but just want others to know this so they can plan accordingly. We had 10pm bus because I was late to book 9pm one and when everything was done it was midnight. We have two kids, 3rd grader and 1st, and they couldn't enjoy the ride to the fullest because they ended up falling asleep. It was awesome experience though. :)

    We were a bit disappointed The bus was late arriving on a rainy evening. Overall an enjoyable experience. We enjoyed the humor of Scott our tour guide. We enjoyed the street performers. It was a bit dark and hard to see the performers around the fountain. Seemed to just circle around the same couple of blocks but this was certainly a fun way to spend an evening.
