For a fun treat while walking around the famous Strip, stop in the New York New York Hotel & Casino for a ride on the thrilling Manhattan Express Roller Coaster. Located on the second floor of the Coney Island game room, the roller coaster begins and ends inside the casino building for a quick look down onto the casino floor. The cars are built to look like old-fashioned NYC yellow cabs, and the ride takes you over the outdoor replica of the New York harbor, complete with a Statue of Liberty over 150 feet tall.For $12.50 per person you get a 3 minute thrill ride, and an escape from the bustle of the crowded Strip sidewalks or casino floors. With drops over 200 feet, loops, twists, and turns, this roller coaster is fun and worth the price. There are discounts offered for multiple rides ($6 for an extra ride or $25 all-day ride pass), or a four-pack for $49 includes 4 tickets and 2 photos! Look for the lockers outside the waiting line, and be sure to put all loose articles in the keyed lockers (50cents), because no cameras, wallets, sunglasses, loose jackets, etc are allowed on the ride.
