When the streets of New York City are the stage, the city’s most iconic landmarks become the set. Prepare to be wowed by surprise performances along the 4.2-mile route through Midtown and Times Square, including stops at Columbus Circle, the Chrysler Building, Grand Central Terminal and Bryant Park. Whether you’re new to the city or a long-time native, you’ll see a whole new side of NYC with THE RIDE.
During this 75-minute entertainment experience, you’ll enjoy a one-of-a-kind show. From ballerinas to freestyle rappers, our performers are scattered around the city, blending in with street life for the ultimate element of surprise. Keep your eyes peeled—you never know who, or what, might step into the spotlight next.
Our custom-designed, multimillion-dollar bus is perfect for people-watching. As the streets become the stage, you’ll view performances through our floor-to-ceiling glass windows and stadium-style seating from your front-row seat to NYC. So, sit back and enjoy THE RIDE.
