    Brilliant place to visit
    Hazel_g, Apr 2024
    The ride at the end incredible very realistic very informative place to visit gave good history of New York in all aspects
    Could be so much better
    Kim_G, Apr 2024
    The VR ride at the end was great fun but the history exhibitions one has to pass through before getting to it were dull and unimaginative. Fortunately, I went early so I wasn't held up by crowds of people and could get through quickly. An expensive 40 minutes!
    Awesome Experience
    Zylvia_L, Apr 2024
    From the start, the experience was jammed packed with historical events and stories presented in the most unique ways. My eleven year old loved every moment as we took our time and absorbed every room.
    Great Ride
    Frances_R, Apr 2024
    The ride was amazing! The rest could have been alot more interactive. But the staff was friendly & accomodating
    Not for little kids.
    TAisha_F, Apr 2024
    The museum portion is great for families with children. However, the ride portion is NOT for children under 10 years old that don't normally go on rides at amusements parks. We weren't adequately prepared for what to expect and my 7 year old did NOT have a good time. It was very realistic and we definitely felt like we were flying through the city in and out of neighborhoods.
    Good experience

    We enjoyed this but would love the ride part to be slightly longer with less of a wait. Would recommend though.
    Day in the city
    Angelica_F, Mar 2024
    Excellent experience! Had lots of fun definitely worth it. Would recommend to anybody that wants to go
    Highly recommended

    Great time and very informative. Take your time or skim through.... either way you'll enjoy. I recommended grabbing a free bag of popcorn and watching clips of iconic NYC movies. The flyover was amazing : on par with many other flyovers we've done.
    Elevated museum experience
    Monica_R, Mar 2024
    Rise NY was great. It's an interactive museum experience. The best parts are the music section and the 4D simulated New Year's Eve ball drop.
    Great experience
    Eileen_A, Mar 2024
    Really fun, very cute and the museums before the ride were really great! The ride was also even better than I thought.
    Joseangel_J, Mar 2024
    Awesome experience every detail was worth it this was great I’m a New York City fan it was great for me to have this experience
    A MUST DO!
    Victoria_F, Mar 2024
    We loved the Hip Hop era! The ride at the end was absolutely the most fun thing we did while visiting!
    Yvonne_N, Mar 2024
    Not really memorable except understand US pop culture a little more. Upset with not getting “VIP” treatment when I had VIP access. Don’t know what VIP entitlement except a lanyard & a bag, sat in a corner during simulator.
    Fun experience

    When we arrived we scanned our tickets and was told we are VIP! We were able to go in first to things and get a discount in the shop. We enjoyed the exhibits and spent time reading it all! We really enjoyed this great way to learn about NYC History!! Take ur time !!

    The ride at the end is amazing the staff are really friendly aswell very informative and helpful for anything in nyc!
    Allison_B, Mar 2024
    Just two New Yorkers (mother & son) out enjoying the city. We had an excellent time. I wish we could have done the ride again —that would be a great add on sale. And we bought a City Rat from the store. They also have a pigeon—I recommend the pigeon for out of town-ers.
    Let down
    Juliana_S, Mar 2024
    The actual assimilation was ok but way too short. It was too hot and boring. The website was misleading! Will not recommend and never return
    A must do
    Karyn_L, Mar 2024

    All in one!
