The Ride Summary

You’ve never seen New York quite like this.

THE RIDE
moves you on a live journey through the streets on a super-sized vehicle -- the largest allowed by law -- that's guaranteed to turn heads. With next generation technology and what feels like miles of windows, you'll be amazed at how New York is transformed before your very eyes.

THE RIDE takes everything that makes New York, New York and kicks it into overdrive. This new entertainment experience turns the streets into a stage. And you’ve got front row seats. Riders will board THE RIDE, a huge, technologically amped up vehicle that travels the streets of New York. With stadium-style, sideways seating and massive windows, Riders have front row seats to the big city.

You never know what you’ll see or who you’ll meet along the 4.2-mile route. No matter how many times you take THE RIDE, it’s never the same show twice. From Grand Central to Central Park, THE RIDE provides a look at New York and its people in a way that you’ve never seen before. You’ll laugh, you’ll be wowed, you might even learn something.

What's part of the show and what's everyday life here in the big city?
The fun's in figuring it out.
So get on and find out for yourself.
