The Roller Coaster at New York New York

The Roller Coaster at New York New York is a sensational Las Vegas attraction that will keep you entertained for hours. This massive attraction in Las Vegas takes thrill seekers up a massive 203 feet, twirling round at high speeds and dropping down 144 feet before coasting along at 67 mph. This Las Vegas experience is not for the faint hearted and simulates a jet fighter style barrel rolls with heart stopping parts such as the infamous heart line twist.

The Roller Coaster begins with the slow 180 foot lift where riders begin to feel the sweat and intense build up before hitting a 76 foot drop. The ride then veers two inversions, a vertical loop and a terrifying dive loop that incorporates a twist and dive. The train then performs a 180 degree spiral before moving into a half-loop manoeuvre. By this point, riders find themselves on the roof of the casino, experienced small hills and a helix before pulling into the rides station which is themed to look like a New York subway station.

The Roller Coaster at New York New York is not for the faint hearted. Built by TOGO, it has received a reputation as a rough, sometimes painful roller-coaster, with some riders previously having bruises on their shoulders from the G-forces that are experienced. However, these were with the old style trains and since the upgrade the ride is a lot more comfortable (still as scary, but more comfortable!).

Other upgrades include magnetic brakes installed in 2004, with the new trains installed in 2006, replacing the older, more painful TOGO style trains. Now the only complaints are screams of terror from the amazing loops, bends and turns of  the Roller-coaster ride at New York New York in Las Vegas.
