THE RIDE New York City

Part tour. Part show. THE RIDE is New York City’s newest ground-breaking theatrical experience that turns the streets of New York into an all-action stage.

Get on THE RIDE a visitor, get off a New Yorker! THE RIDE is the critically and virally acclaimed attraction that uses New York City and its iconic landmarks as the backdrop for a theatrical event that blurs the boundary between sightseeing tour and performance and where the streets of NYC become a stage with a live show featuring fun facts, unparalleled technology and street performances.

Described by the Today Show as "the hottest way to see New York," THE RIDE combines sightseeing, entertainment and hilarious people-watching in one fun, party-style ride. Lively hosts offer tips and video clips about Manhattan's top attractions along the way, including Times Square, Grand Central Terminal, Carnegie Hall, Radio City Music Hall, The Chrysler Building, Columbus Circle, Central Park and the Theater District.

As you face sideways out of floor-to-ceiling glass windows, this one-of-a-kind interactive entertainment experience unfolds the city’s iconic landmarks before your eye, delivering unparalleled panoramic and vertical views of Midtown Manhattan. With surprises around every corner, you will be left guessing who is a part of the show and who is just along for THE RIDE.
