FASTEN YOUR SEAT BELTS.
“Fasten your seat belts and embrace the city. This is a shared experience and something to be talked about. The tour takes on a cinematic aura. This is, after all, how movies and Broadway shows work. While walking down a street, someone breaks into song and dance, just as strollers do here. On THE RIDE you watch the passersby look in pleasure at the theatrical indulgence of the performers on the sidewalk; you almost expect them to join in. Quite a few conversations started on the sidewalk as the bus rocked by. The street is quite a RIDE. All tour buses should be built this way.”
-New York Times
A SPECTACULAR EXPERIENCE.
“THE RIDE is a spectacular immersive and interactive entertainment experience that moves you through midtown as an ever-changing show featuring actors, performers, and citizens unfolds before you. Each vehicle features over 3,000 LED lights, 40 video screens, an IMAX Theater’s worth of audio equipment, cutting-edge speakers and “floor-shaker” sound system technology that emulates everything from passing subways to a thumping nightclub.”
INGENIOUS. LIKE WATCHING A MOVIE.
“There’s a show on every corner in New York and that fact has been woven ingeniously into THE RIDE, a new sightseeing bus tour proudly wheeling around Manhattan. THE RIDE rolls on vehicles pimped-out in razzle-dazzle. What makes THE RIDE so unique are its street performers positioned strategically along the bus route who get in on all the action. Their moments are charming and delightful. Even if you know the city, you haven’t seen it from this panoramic view. It’s like watching a movie unfold live. THE RIDE lets you see the city with fresh eyes.”
