If you want some of the best pizza in the world Staten Island is your place. Probably the only thing we got going for us. Lee's Tavern, Brothers Pizzeria and Denino's are all very famous establishments. Denino's just opened a location in NYC as well. If you go to the one in Staten Island you can walk over to the original world famous Ralph's Ices.
Lightning Rod, Skyrush, El Toro, Superman: The Ride, Apollo's Chariot, Boulder Dash, Montu, Phoenix , Phantom's Revenge, , StormRunner

Why do I still have a donkey title???

This is true, but it's always been my firm belief that if you give less than the very reasonable suggested donation you're a complete a**hole.

Does Jeff Johnson count this donkey as a credit?

If so check out the Ghostbusters/Void attraction at Madame Tussands. The most impressive VR experience I have seen to date. I could see it as E Ticket in Universal. Shockingly well done. I would love to hear your thoughts on it. Still can't get over how well everything worked. First time I haven't felt ripped off during a tourist attraction in Times Square.

It was broken the day we were going to check it out. Hopefully once the bugs are all worked out we'll try it (or see more popping up in other places)!


I noticed three void employees and at least 4 MT employees for an attraction that only can run 4 people at a time (15 minute session). Must be finnicky needed all that staff seven weeks in. When we went on Tuesday everything worked but I heard it crashed and had to restarted for a group earlier.

It's not just VR so I can see the hiccups. Hopefully you will get to try it soon.

I'm not sure what you mean. It's a "pizza tour" not a "hot dog tour." ;)

I live here and already pay enough taxes so it doesn't bother me.
