Full description
When New York entrepreneurs and creative types join forces, ultramodern entertainment in the form of a 45-foot long bus with stadium seats, surround sound, and street performances ensues. Take this interactive 75-minute bus ride and see New York from an entirely unique perspective.

It turns the streets of New York into a stage, bringing entertainment and tourism together to create a city experience that everyone, from tourists to native New Yorkers, can enjoy. The RIDE drives through New York and features performances in front of sights, such as Grand Central, 42nd Street, Central Park, and more. It’s Broadway without the limitations of a stationary theater, and a bus tour with a theatrical twist.

Each of the mobile theaters hold 3 rows of stadium seats, plus the most modern audio and visual technology, including speakers that bring inside sounds out onto the street, enabling RIDErs to go “On Air” and interact with the city.

The RIDE is also available in Japanese on the third Thursday of every month and in Spanish on the first Thursday of every month - both at 7:15 PM and 8:45 PM. While THE RIDE’s performances and videos remain in English, these departures of the RIDE feature one of your two comedic hosts translating in Japanese or Spanish.
