Enjoy one of the most action-packed bus tours that you will ever take when you board The Ride.

Not only does The Ride take you on a scenic voyage through New York City, it also provides you with tons of entertainment along the way. The streets of New York become a broadway stage along this 75 minute interactive tour/show as surprises leap out from every corner to make your ride a truly unforgettable experience. Each tour is also led by an expert guide who knows New York City like the palm of their hand and can provide you with engaging and comedic commentary on the sights of the city.

Passengers on the ride sit facing sideways to view the show as well as the sights that will be just outside of the floor-to-ceiling windows. Some of the great entertainment featured on The Ride includes singers, dancers and instrumentalists. As an audience member, you might not even be able to tell who is a part of the show and who is just a regular New Yorker.

While on the ride you will be passing through New York City's diverse and exciting Midtown area where you will be seeing some of the city's greatest landmarks as you journey for 4.2 miles.  

** Please note that The Ride is not recommended for visitors who are younger than 6 years of age. **
