Ride the roller coaster around NYNY at night - it's quite a blast! However, at my recent stay, the coaster now is $14 a ride, which is getting ridiculous. Note that it is shut down in high winds, and it also has been under repair a time or two that we have visited. The casino itself is pretty neat to walk around in, with some recreations of NY neighborhoods (The food court is especially cool.)
I went to NY, NY about 5 years ago with the girls in my family. I LOVED the bathrooms in the casino! And we had pretty good luck there with the slot machines.
When you enter from the street it reminded me of the streets of New York, which I'm sure they spent tons of money trying to recreate. I loved the NY souvenirs. Lots of fast food options here like pizza, pretzels, sodas. Enjoyed the short visit.
Will one day ride the roller coaster!
Now, if a city can contain New York City, even a replication of it, you have to take your hat off to it. But there it is, actually just up the street from Motel 6, New York City. Statue of Liberty. Empire State Building. There they are. It is a compact, pretty representation that certainly is pleasing to the eye even if the palm trees don't fit quite in. Of course, it's not really New York City. Even Vegas couldn't manage that, but for those that have never been or are afraid to visit The Big Apple, this can be a nice starter course.
New York New York has a roller coaster. Even though I opted out of taking the ride, my boyfriend, daughter and one of her friends went on it. I thought it was a rather short coaster ride but they seemed to enjoy it.
Upon entering the casino, make your way towards the back and up the escalator through the fun zone.
New York, New York hotel is a fun place with NY landmarks made into café’s and shops. You can have your face super imposed on a range of photo’s including cowboys, angels, wrestlers and over 200 other images. Other shops include Harley Davidson and a NY souvenir shop.
Only in Vegas can you walk from Venice to Paris to New York in just a few minutes! Because we stayed across the street, we spent a fair bit of time at the New York, New York hotel. It wasn't as crowded as the MGM Grand, and I thought there was a nice casual atmosphere, especially for the younger crowd. Of course, looking at the hotel from the outside is an attraction in itself as you can pick out many of the famous NYC landmarks in the condensed New York skyline: the Empire State Building, the Chrysler Building, the Brooklyn Bridge and of course the Statue of Liberty are all there, among others.
One of my favorite features inside was the hotel's foodcourt, designed to look a bit like Greenwhich Village, which happens to be my favorite area in NYC. There are many casual restaurants and bars, including my favorite place to hang out at night in Las Vegas: the Nine Fine Irishmen pub (see my nightlife tips section). Another big attraction at the New York, New York is the Manhattan Express roaller coaster but when I saw how high the first drop was (203 feet!), I thought I'd rather live to tell about it - riding the elevator up the Eiffel Tower had already given me all the thrill I needed!!
New York-New York is another giant hotel & casino on the Las Vegas Strip. Its façade is amazing! There are replicas of all the recognisable New York landmarks, such as the Statue of Liberty, Empire State Building, Chrysler Building, Brooklyn Bridge, and more, and a roller coaster that threads its way amongst them all!
The interior keeps with the New York theme, with a neon-filled Times Square feel to the casino, and even whiffs of steam rising from fake drain covers near some elevators. There are numerous bars and restaurants too of course, the Nine Fine Irishmen Irish bar being particularly popular, and it has Brooklyn Bridge views too.
If you like roller coasters then this ones for you. Not only does it race around the NewYork, NewYork Hotel, it also dips and dives inside the hotel!!
Really strange if you happen to be sitting having a drink on the sidewalk of the NewYork brownstone houses inside, and if you didnt know it was coming, the traincar can scare the life out of you!!
My boys really wanted to ride this and they really wanted me to go. I do not like heights, but occasionally I make exceptions. I knew it was high, but had no idea how high. My hubby thought it was going to be simple, so as we crested the 203 foot climb, it dropped us 144 feet going 67 mph, it left us all screaming and laughing. We did a simulated jet fighter barrel roll and then turning us 180 degrees hanging us 86 feet in the air and felt some negative g's. After we did that my yougenst screamed out loud weeeeeeeeeeee, so if he was happy, we were happy. It is a pretty awesome ride. You gotta to try it!
Hours: Sun-Thurs 11am-11pm
