THE RIDE LAUNCHES NEW CORPORATE TEAMBUILDING ACTIVITIES
NEW YORK CITY, NY – March 18, 2015 – THE RIDE is a natural for Corporate Team Building. Part tour and part show, THE RIDE is a highly interactive and immersive entertainment experience in New York City.
The brainchild of Broadway producers, THE RIDE turns the streets of New York City into a stage. With live performances on the street and on THE RIDE’s custom-built motor coaches, audiences are treated to a one-of-kind interactive entertainment experience that unfolds with iconic New York City sights as supporting players.
THE RIDE specializes in private corporate RIDEs individually built for the staff of the largest national brands and businesses in the world. Meetings, Incentives and Private Event clients can customize and brand THE RIDE to create a unique “only in New York” experience. THE RIDE works with corporate clients to integrate fun facts about their company into the script for a highly entertaining immersive tour, teambuilding experience, product activation or transfer that is tailored specifically for the client.
Beginning this spring, THE RIDE now offers three distinct teambuilding activities, THE RIDE Quiz, Scavenger Hunt and NYC MAD-libs, to even further engage passengers in the show and with each other.
Hosted by RIDE characters, Scott and Jackie, and using sound effects and exclusive RIDE technology, THE RIDE Quiz is an interactive experience that engages all passengers. Corporate clients customize the quiz by providing the questions and answers that will be used by RIDE performers during the quiz.
During the Scavenger Hunt activity, THE RIDE’s passengers spot pre-determined items on the streets of NYC. The group breaks up into 2 teams, each co-captained by a RIDE audience member and one of THE RIDE hosts. Corporate clients customize the list by adding items specific to their brand or company. It’s a race to see who can find the most items before THE RIDE comes to an end.
An often-hilarious team building activity, Mad-LIBS is a phrasal template word game where one player prompts others for a list of words to substitute for blanks in a story, before reading the – often comical or nonsensical – story aloud. On THE RIDE, passengers suggest words for our New York City based Mad-libs. RIDE hosts, Scott and Jackie, facilitate the game and stage a dramatic reading of the group’s story at the completion of THE RIDE.
No matter which activity or activities a corporate group elects to build a RIDE around, everybody always gets off THE RIDE smiling, laughing and talking about his or her shared “only in New York” experience.
THE RIDE’s multi-million-dollar motor coaches are the tallest allowed on the streets of NYC, introducing an exhilarating view of New York through their massive floor-to-ceiling windows, stadium-style seating, and floor-shaking sound system. Each RIDE also boasts two on-board hosts, brilliantly skilled at delivering a combination of comedic improvisation and histories of this nation’s most famous destination point and 5-7 original street vignettes.
THE RIDE has just been awarded its fourth TripAdvisor® Certificate of Excellence Award. It was also nominated for the 58th Annual Drama Desk Award in the prestigious Unique Theatrical Experience Category.
