the tour new york

THE RIDE – the most unique and fun way to discover New York City. This acclaimed interactive entertainment and tour experience introduces you to the Big Apple’s most iconic sights, and gives you a taste of the city’s eclectic atmosphere. Immerse yourself in each attraction with patented, multi million dollar vehicles that have floor-to-ceiling glass windows and stadium seating. In addition, the vehicle’s advanced audio and visual technology includes 40 LCD TV screens, 3000 LED lights, and surround sound.
THE RIDE is a 75-minute thrill with 2 comedic hosts and 5-7 live street performances. The moving theatre navigates a 4.2-mile path around Midtown Manhattan. That ensures you a front row seat to the streets of NYC. Furthermore, performers blend with the street life to become a part of THE RIDE. This combination gives guests a new angle of NYC that can’t be experienced anywhere else!

Meanwhile THE TOUR, powered by THE RIDE, navigates a 90-minute route through some of NYC’s most iconic neighborhoods and landmarks in Midtown Manhattan & the Upper West Side. Guided by a licensed Tour Navigator and enhanced with unparalleled technology, THE TOUR brings the past, present, and future of New York City to life! This is The New Generation of Sightseeing! The bus will navigate a 90 minute route exploring over 10 NYC neighborhoods and 50 landmarks: Lincoln Center, Central Park, Fifth Avenue, Rockefeller Center, Empire State Building, Times Square, Columbus Circle, and the famous Forty-Second Street, to name a few sites.

THE DOWNTOWN EXPERIENCE, powered by THE RIDE, is a newer experiential bus experience. This is a 90-minute multimedia historical adventure exploring Downtown Manhattan. It features the magic of Timelooper virtual reality. THE DOWNTOWN EXPERIENCE is the first sightseeing tour to have a fully integrated virtual reality experience that allows guests to witness full-scale, 360 degree reenactments of some of NYC’s iconic moments as if you’ve traveled back in time. As a result, it’s the world’s only traveling virtual reality theatre!
