    NY, NY Roller Coaster

    by denadearborn Written Apr 6, 2004

    If you have 10 dollars left over from the casino, go upstairs and ride the roller coaster at night. It's a cheap thrill that you should experience once. You feel like you are flying through the streets of NY. The con is that the people who are staying at the hotel have to listen to the noise of a roller coaster and people screaming at night. I believe it closes down at 10 so check before heading out.

    I did not have the chance to take a "ride" at the Stratosphere, but from what I could see from the window across the Sahara Buffet... I imagined myself being pull up and down on those coaster... It's high as it is, and having to dread the ride on top of the tower? You have got to be an adrenaline junkie to want to try that ride, I would say it is worth a try, I would love to take a ride on it, if somebody is brave is enough to accompany me and share the terror :D

    New York Roller Coaster

    by firechick Updated May 14, 2003

    If you want a thrill that has nothing to do with pulling the one armed bandits, check out the roller coaster at New York New York. It's hideously fast and rocks you around like crazy - not for the faint of heart! The pictures they take of you as you zoom around (available for purchase later of course) are just awful! Be prepared to be scared! :-)

    The Manhattan Express -- New York New York

    by jmcboulder Written May 22, 2003

    The Manhattan Express is the roller coasted you see wrapping around the New York New York hotel. Big dips and huge speed make it a coasted not to be missed. Whether it is worth the $10 per person ticket price or not remains to be seen, although after a good day of drinking, it is an absolute blast.

    The huge outdoor coaster wrapping in and out of the buildings of New York, is awsome! I am a roller coaster nut,and this ranks as a great coaster. Worth the money.

    Where? Hotel New York!
    A fantastic thrill ride where you can experience the force of negative "G's". (12,50 $)
    No queues, no stress!

    From the screams we heard coming from the coaster, it sounds like it's a lot of fun. It was fun to see the mini-scrapers from home, but without the hundreds of cabs it just wasn't realistic.

    The picture shows the High Roller, going round the top of the tower.

    See the tip Rollercoaster madness for all the information on the Stratosphere Casino Hotel and Tower.

    Ride a rollercoaster

    by paradisedreamer Updated May 22, 2003

    A roller coaster winds it way around the New Yorker Hotel. I think it is the highest roller coaster in the world.
