The Ride Story

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 tour and performance. The Ride’s patented traveling theatres are designed with coliseum seating and floor-to-ceiling glass windows truly making the streets the stage. Immediately after departure, guests won’t be able to tell where the New York City streets begin and the show ends!

The Ride’s custom, multi-million dollar motor coaches come equipped with state-of-the-art audio/visual technology, including 40 plasma TV screens and over 3000 LED lights. Enjoy our hilarious hosts trained in improvisation so that each performance is fresh depending on what’s happening on the street that day. You will delight in pop-up presentations along the 4.2-mile route through Midtown and Times Square by The Ride’s talented ensemble of actors, singers, dancers, and instrumentalists. The Ride is one of the best ways to tour New York on a budget and whether you’re new to the city or a long-time native, you’ll find New York City eternally fresh aboard The Ride.

*Please note: All buses depart from 42nd St. and 8th Ave., in front of Senor Frog's. Alcohol is not allowed on The Ride and children must be of at least six years of age to board The Ride.
