No one freak out now, but the DOWNTOWN EXPERIENCE Powered by THE RIDE has just changed New York City sightseeing forever! It’s THE RIDE here, and I’m happy to announce that the newest attraction in THE RIDE family is here (joining classic THE RIDE and THE TOUR Powered by THE RIDE)—and all I can say is WOW!
Until now, it’s always been fun to visit historic NYC places to imagine what they must have been like as history was being made. Occasionally you’d even encounter re-creations of momentous events, like the famous V-Day kiss in Times Square. But now that the DOWNTOWN EXPERIENCE is available, you can actually experience the incidents that changed the course of history while you’re at the location where they occurred. It’s all one step further toward real time travel!
How does it work? Well, it involves the advanced technology of THE RIDE’s partner Timelooper, which provides almost magical Virtual Reality visualizations that allow visitors to travel back in time and relive iconic historical moments in New York’s early years, at places like the South Street Seaport, Ellis Island, Battery Park, Chinatown, Wall Street, Federal Hall and the Stock Exchange.
Of course since your inspiring journey to the past is powered by THE RIDE, you can still expect a multi-media adventure full of unexpected live performances, a deeply researched historical narrative, and panoramic views of the best the Big Apple has to offer through floor-to-ceiling glass windows. So now is the time to relive history—reserve tickets to your DOWNTOWN EXPERIENCE now!
