Um, can we rank a park a zero? I believe we can, so I did. The ride ops are a joke and herd you like cattle treating you like the tourist that you are. The on-ride photo consists of someone with a digital camera snapping your picture sitting in the train on the loading platform and passing off the SD card.
The ride itself is a headbanging nightmare and is certianly not with the $12 something to ride. No forces, extremely slow in the roll with the only cool factor being you are riding somewhat on top of the hotel. Pass if it all possible.
The coaster was very unique, but it will beat you to death. The location is very cool, and the view is amazing. However you will get off the ride with bruises. Ride it once for the credit but that's all. If you can smile through the pain, smile for the camera so you can have the picture to prove you survived.
This hotel is average except for the outside. The reason for two stars? THE *EXPLETIVE* COASTER CALLED MANHATTAN EXPRESS (Or whatever they decided to rename it). This painful and rough Togo coaster can and will cause pain, especially in the neck and back and head areas. I say scrap it and build an Intamin or B&M. The place has potential if a new ride is built.
Be ready to pay for this one and to not get your moneys worth, This coaster has very little thrill to it there is one pretty decent drop and it is no doubt worth riding at least once to experience the strange unique diving loop which is quite fun its just too bad you have to go through several minutes of being bashed around to experience it
This ride is pretty much just paying for a credit. The ride is rough, but not as rough as I had anticipated. If you are riding it for enjoyment don't ride it. If you are riding it for the credit, ride it. I rode it at night and a short line took quite some time to get through. The crew doesn't seem exactly motivated, so keep that in mind if you are riding during a layover or something.
New York, New York is a pretty nice hotel. I've never stayed there, but I've walked around most of it and thought it was the nicest of the "cheap" hotels. The Roller Coaster, however, was awful! Since I was staying at Excalibur, I bought a day pass and rode 5 times throughout the day to see if the seat choice made a difference. It didn't!!! Not worth $16, but if you must ride go early, as the line got progressively longer as the day wore on.
I love the New York New York Casino but the Roller Coaster or Manhatten Express or whatever you call it is quite the kidney punch. This ride hurts and nothing can help it. Togo really knows how to hurt people on their rides and this is a prime example of it. The only smooth part of the ride is when you are in the station before the ride starts...after that, it's all bloody ears and bruised kidney's. The Casino and Hotel is amazing and I've won a lot of money there. Get the credit if you need it
