HISTORY – REVOLUTION – EVOLUTION

THE DOWNTOWN EXPERIENCE Powered by THE RIDE will begin at 200 Water Street overlooking the New York Harbor and explore the historic blocks of the Seaport and lower Manhattan – the very blocks where rough and tumble New York roared to life, struggled to be born into freedom and through freedom’s challenges evolved throughout the last two hundred years.  THE DOWNTOWN EXPERIENCE looks forward to having you aboard the 21st century technological wonders that are THE RIDE’s patented traveling theatres on this audio/visual, personally narrated journey recreating New York’s downtown history and enhanced with the magic of Virtual Reality.

LAUNCHING MARCH 2017. TICKETS ON SALE NOW!

THE DOWNTOWN EXPERIENCE is pleased to be partnering with TimeLooper to incorporate virtual reality into this experiential entertainment initiative. TimeLooper is a location-based platform that enables people to re-live the most amazing moments from a location’s history via virtual reality delivered right on their smartphones.  You can download the app in the Google Play or the App Store.
