People of all ages have experienced and loved The Ride from all around the world, yet we are often asked if The Ride is fun for teens. Of course it is! What’s not to love? We are a theater show, we’re a comedy show, we’re informative, we’re fun, we have music, we have dancing, we have a bus that talks to you!
You don’t have to take our word for it, though, listen to Fodor’s Travel Guide, one of the world’s most respected guidebooks.
Their recent list titled “Top 5 New York City Activities for Teens” lists us at number 3! We’re in such prestigious company as the Trapeze School New York, and ahead of world famous Madame Tussauds wax museum!

Just read their great description of us!
Part tour bus, part theatrical production, The Ride is a concept all its own. Pile in for this 75-minute interactive show ($64–$74 per ticket) on wheels that pairs an animated duo of bantering onboard hosts (stand-up and improv comedy pros) with a slate of scripted performances that unfold on the city streets. The Ride, a moving theater of sorts, showcases a cast of featured street performers, including a tap-dancer, freestyling rapper, ballerina, and more—along with the seemingly never-ending stream of New Yorkers who also unwittingly become part of the entertainment.
Take in key sights and hear funny commentary on Midtown mainstays like Central Park, Grand Central Station, Bryant Park, the Chrysler Building, and Times Square. The technologically tricked-out multimillion-dollar motor coach features stadium-style seating for up to 49 patrons, plenty of audio-visual flair (including 40 plasma screens), floor-to-ceiling glass windows, and even a high-tech hydraulics system for guests to experience a simulated ride along a stretch of NYC subway.
