I sent an email to the mgmt to no avail! My husband and I had tickets for the 11: 30 a.m. "Ride" on Sunday. After waiting a half hour in the blazing sun, a Ride rep told us the ride was cancelled and we had to get a refund or make a new reservation by tomorrow. Apparently, there was an air conditioning problem on the bus. So we waited in line and were able to get on the 1:00 p.m. Ride. Then we waited until nearly 1:30 p.m. for the bus to arrive. We soon figured out that there was still no air conditioning on the bus! It was a totally unhealthy and un-fun experience with very little participation from the wilted guests. I am disappointed in the lack of concern for the riders by your management. With temperatures in the low 90s, it was cooler outside than on the bus! Clearly, money rules and putting our health in jeopardy was more important than making sure the a/c was working before departure or refunding our money.

The ride was a lot of fun, the tour guides were hysterically funny, the interactive street performers were top of the line. The only issue was the bus was uncomfortably hot; there was a lack of air conditioning. Not recommended for claustrophobic ppl

Great and enlightening experience. I think the event is over priced at full price, but at the Groupon price it's more reasonable.

From Our Editors

Aboard the motor coach, Anderson Cooper sank lower in his seat, grinning and pulling his hat over his eyes as a friendly rapper called him out by name. But this rapper wasn't on-board the coach. Instead, he was spitting his rhymes from the sidewalk outside, performing for an audience on one of The Ride's interactive New York City tours. Though unique, Mr. Cooper's experience has been shared by hundreds of other famous personalities, tourists, and locals. Floor-to-ceiling windows cover the entire right side and roof of each of The Ride's custom built-motor coaches, breaking the fourth wall as they ensure that not only can passengers view the city, but the city can look back in. Due to their popularity, The Ride's tours have been chronicled by media outlets such as New York Live, Good Morning America, and The Today Show.

As each motor coach embarks on its tour through 4.2 miles of Midtown, guides encourage group participation with song, dance, and question-and-answer sessions, much like any good meeting with a tax accountant. With the aid of 40 plasma monitors displaying images and historical information, they also divulge facts about landmarks such as Central Park, 42nd Street, and Grand Central Station. As the bus travels alongside famous buildings and city sidewalks, passengers encounter a range of characters. Some are regular New Yorkers, but others are company performers in disguise. Rappers, dancers, singers, and actors leap from the crowd to entertain their mobile audiences with impromptu live routines, and sometimes pull audience members into the show. Surround-sound stereo, wireless microphones, and external speakers allow audiences to hear the performances from their seats, unlike pedestrians outside, who have to hop on a neighbor's shoulders to get a better view.
