Inside Scoop: THE RIDE


Touted as “The hottest way to see New York” by The Today Show, New York City’s newest groundbreaking theatrical experience comes to life in the heart of Times Square. Part tour. Part show. THE RIDE is a one-of-a-kind entertainment experience that turns the streets of New York into a stage.


THE RIDE is a 75-minute journey through Times Square and midtown Manhattan where New York City’s iconic landmarks unfold before your very eyes. Discover the excitement and wonder about New York’s most noted locations as audience members face sideways looking out of floor-to-ceiling glass windows, delivering unparalleled panoramic and vertical views of Manhattan. With stadium seating, 40 monitors, 3000 LED lights, & surround sound, THE RIDE is the world’s only moving theater.


Dubbed “An extravaganza spectacle that thrills” by the Village Voice, THE RIDE is the only tour attraction that provides a fully tailored adventure for each performance. With surprises around every corner, THE RIDE’s ensemble cast of singers, dancers, musicians, actors, and comedians are sure to captivate and entertain. THE RIDE provides so much interaction and over-the-top stimulation, audience members are left guessing who is a part of the show and who is just along for THE RIDE.


There’s no better way to see New York City and its iconic landmarks than on THE RIDE. Appropriate for children 6+ and adults. We like to think, “Get on THE RIDE a visitor, get off a New Yorker!”
