Cheesy, but we loved it!
We had a fantastic time on ?The Ride?. After reading the synopsis and some of the reviews, I was a bit skeptical...but I had free tickets, so I thought, why not? Having lived in NY for 7 years, I?ve never been on any of the tour buses. We boarded the high tech bus, sat in the center of one of the rows of the stadium style seating facing giant windows; the entire driver?s side and ceiling are large window panels with some TV monitors to assist with the show. A much better plan than the open top double-deckers for a winter day! There are 2 hosts aboard the bus, who take you on a tour of midtown Manhattan, share facts and factoids, ask quiz show style questions and stop in front of some very talented performers from a rapper to ballet dancers, and my favorite, an auditioning wannabe Broadway starlet. It was a lot of fun to get a different perspective on midtown. I?m not sure I would have been willing to pay the $65 price of admission, but there are great discount codes, so I say, check ?The Ride? out!
