Tour buses have been traversing the streets of NYC for years, but none have ever come close to providing the entertainment experience promised by THE RIDE. Transporting patrons in a one-of-a-kind, multi-million-dollar motor coach that offers ideal views out of the vehicle’s sides, THE RIDE (and THE TOUR powered by THE RIDE) provides stadium-style seating, floor-to-ceiling glass windows, and 40 LCD TV screens. Really, there is no bad view while aboard this unique bus.
Aside from the top of the line transportation, THE RIDE is live narrated by some of the city's most talented comedians and performers. These aren’t the type of tour guides that will put you to sleep. You’ll be laughing your way through this extraordinary tour, guaranteed. THE RIDE is a family-friendly experience that’s perfect for any age, and you’ll be sharing stories of your time aboard this specialized bus for years to come.
Upping the perks, THE RIDE has three new and exciting announcements for 2017, including discounted rates, new guide languages, and even a brand-new tour experience. Read on to see what kind of opportunities lie ahead in THE RIDE’s future — it just keeps getting better!
Lower Prices in 2017
With a new year comes new prices. The Ride is lowering their ticket prices for 2017, which means you’ll get to experience everything THE RIDE and THE TOUR have to offer for a notable discount. THE RIDE is now offering tickets for $55, down from its original $74, while THE TOUR now has tickets for $34, down from its original $45. With serious savings comes serious fun, and THE RIDE and THE TOUR will provide exactly that.
7 New Languages
International travelers should get excited, because THE RIDE and THE TOUR will be introducing seven new languages to their narration in March 2017. Spanish, German, French, Italian, Japanese, Mandarin, and Portuguese will all be included as language options while aboard both memorable tours of New York City.
A New Downtown Experience
As if the discounted tickets and broadening language options weren’t enough, fans of THE RIDE have even more to look forward to. Coming in March 2017, THE RIDE will be offering a new tour to its roster. The Downtown Experience will be joining the list of tours this spring, providing a multi-media adventure with live narration that explores the birthplace neighborhoods of New York City. Advanced technology will simultaneously show you a virtual reality of famous sites during the years that made them famous.
Imagine traveling back to the inauguration of George Washington in 1789 while being seated directly in front of the present day location of where his original inauguration took place — that’s the type of experience you’ll be enjoying on this groundbreaking journey of the 21st century. From discovery and immigration to revolution and commerce, The Downtown Experience covers all sorts of establishing New York City history in a way that’s innovative and immersive.
