The Deal

The haunted experience—part tour, part show—takes place October 9 through November 2. The Ride’s open-visibility motor coaches take audiences on an interactive journey through the streets of Midtown in search of spooky haunts and members of the undead. Along the way, passengers hear ghost stories and meet street performers—rappers, Broadway singers, and dancers—as well as scores of regular New Yorkers. A PA system allows audiences to communicate directly with those outside, and internal speakers bring the sounds of the performers and the street inside.<p>

The Ride

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. At times, rappers, dancers, singers, and actors leap from the crowd to entertain their mobile audiences with impromptu routines, and sometimes pull audience members into the show.

Customer Reviews

First of all, let me say the discount on the Groupon is the same price as their online price. Overall this tour is awesome, the tour guide are both very energetic and it's totally worth $35!

The tour guides were fun, talented and involved the whole bus. Our 8 year old grandson said that The Ride was his favorite part of our whole trip to NYC!!! Even my husband really liked it!!!!

The Ride was AWESOME! My friend and I took our daughters who were both celebrating their 18th birthday to NY for an overnight visit and this is the one attraction that we all agreed was great! The guides were so fun and inclusive and the people who were a part of the experience along the way were amazing! We happened to go when it was cold and rainy, but these people put on a show like there wasn't a cloud in the sky. It is definitely a great idea for parents of teens looking to do something fun with a mixture of a little bit of a history lesson.
