Okay, so we visited NYC in December. It was freezing. We had the NY Pass and The Ride was included. A friend had recommended it so when the temperature dropped to -10 degrees we booked the attraction for the 1st showing of the day around 9:30am, as shelter from the cold! The

We are not sure what is wrong with this reviewer. There was not one departure in all of 2019 that was three hours late. That is not something that we subject our customers too. So starting off with one lie, you can imagine the rest of it is also a lie.

One of our favorite parts of our trip. Had to wait a little bit for the bus to arrive, but work every minute. Staff on the ride was hilarious and kept the trip very entertaining.
