The Ride is a unique interactive, multimedia experiential tour of New York City that offers a new way of seeing and experiencing the sights, presenting the city streets themselves as the stage to a theatrical event. The landmarks and sights of Manhattan become the backdrops and settings, blurring the line between sightseeing and performance. It’s part tour, part show, and totally entertaining.
The Ride takes place in a multi-million dollar motor coach customized for this particular experience, with floor to ceiling glass windows and stadium seating all facing the same direction. So no more spending the entire bus tour straining to look over your shoulder to see the buildings passing by, and no need to worry about the taller tourists getting good seats first. All the seating inside The Ride is amazing, and offer unobstructed views of the surrounding city.
On The Ride, two award-winning guides will take you across the city, past Times Square, The Chrysler Building, Grand Central Station, The Empire Sate Building, 42nd Street, Shubert Alley, Broadway, Carnegie Hall, Columbus Circle, Central Park, Fifth Ave, and more, all the while giving you the sorts of details and stories that even the locals don’t know. But perhaps the most exciting aspects of The Ride are the street performers. During the tour, you’ll get to experience some of the best performers New York has to offer, seeming to appear right out of the crowd and presenting a performance for The Ride right there, on the streets. It’s a completely new type of experience, part tour bus and part traveling theater.
