I FULLY ENDORSE THE RIDE.
IT’S A MILLION DOLLAR PORTABLE THEATER
SHOWING YOU NEW YORK’S BEST.
IT IS A COMPELLING EXPERIENCE.
“On Christmas Eve, my family and I ventured into NYC for a day of Holiday sightseeing. We started at the tree at Rockefeller Center, went by department windows at Sax Fifth Avenue and Lord & Taylor, went shopping at the Bryant Park Market and idled in the fantastic lobby at the Algonquin Hotel. But we had ONE THING on our mind: our 4:00pm reservation on THE RIDE. It would be inclusive of everything I love most in life. I’ve lived in New York for years and never tire of the buzz it radiates. I also love the theater and I knew THE RIDE would relish in its role in Times Square life. I love street life. I enjoy karaoke, comedy and everything interactive. BELIEVE IT! THE RIDE ENCOMPASSES ALL OF THIS. It takes place on a fancy Bus with stadium-seating, video screens and thousands of lights. There are two Hosts; each one funnier than the other. As the Bus travels through Times Square, the people on the streets are part of the show, both willingly and unwillingly. Each night a crew of more than 60 technical people, street performers and tour-guide actors with improvisational comedy experience provide entertainment, and all of a sudden, one of the people being spoken to from the Bus breaks out in performance. We were entertained by a rapper, a ballet dancer, a saxophonist and soulful singer, a hip hop dancer and most certainly, our two Hosts who were HILARIOUS. The tour includes NYC history, which I found very compelling. At one point, the Bus turned into an actual subway, speeding down a few blocks, shaking just like an actual train that cruises underground. The bus that is THE RIDE is no joke. Each vehicle costs upwards of a million dollars and includes 49 seats, transparent windows (so the people on the street actually see you), 3K LED lights which flash in various colors all through THE RIDE and many video screens. I FULLY ENDORSE THE RIDE. It’s literally a portable theater riding through the streets of NYC, showing you the City’s best. “
