THE RIDE OF YOUR LIFE

THE RIDE OF YOUR LIFE

July 01, 2014

What do you get when you merge Broadway with really big buses? Something akin to "The Ride," a hybrid tour than turns the streets of New York City into a stage. The New York Post calls it "a sightseeing tour on steroids" and that sums up this exhilarating experience nicely. Here's how it works: Climb aboard one of three multi-million dollar motor coaches (with state-of-the-art AV, 40 plasma screens and enough LED bulbs to light the Great White Way), sit back in stadium seating in front of panoramic windows and watch New York City's daily doings unfold. Tracing a 4.2-mile path across midtown, you'll see New York as you've never seen it before. Professional performers and passersby come together to blur the Big Apple's boundary between sightseeing tour and theatrical triumph. Whether you're staying in an ultra-affordable New York City hotel or a luxury suite with all the bells and whistles, this is one experience that's worth every penny.

Address: Starts and ends on 42nd Street at 8th Avenue; box office at Madame Tussauds
