New York Skyride

New York Skyride
This visual and motion simulation experience allows you to lift off from atop the Empire State Building, soar through the Manhattan Skyline, glide past the Statue of Liberty, play in traffic at Times Square, “zoom” through Wall Street, and ride the stomach-crunching Coney Island Cyclone – all while secured into a seat which is part of a specially designed platform, synchronized to the movements on the wide 18x18 foot screen. Conveniently located on the second floor, NYSKYRIDE is an awesome aerial tour of New York City that sends you on a ride around, above and even below all that the City has to offer. . . and you feel the sights from the comfort of a specially equipped, motion simulated, big screen theater seat! Through the magic of advanced flight simulation, NYSKYRIDE puts the passenger in the middle of the action. This techno journey is guided by comic Yakov Smirnoff and James Doohan, Scotty, from the original Star Trek.
