This activity wasn’t what I thought it was going to be virtual reality wasn’t used very much I was expecting the whole trip to be VR. For that reason I wouldn’t recommend travelling solely for the purpose of VR, I’d stay in the City and do the other Ride tours. Our host Christa was great and very interactive. Thankfully we were able to use our New York City Pass for this otherwise I would of been very annoyed at spending $59 on a VR experience that was minimal to say the least

"The Tour - Excellent! (Noon trip on 2/15/19)"
TripAdvisor user rating 5 out of 5

The online registration was simple. Finding the pick-up location was difficult. The address given on the website wasn't where the bus picked us up. (Across the street and down 1/2 block) HOWEVER....that is the ONLY complaint I have. Team for our trip was exciting, pleasant, engaging and a real hoot! Claire was our host/guide and did an AWESOME job! Very funny, even when she was on ad-lib (unscripted) distractions. Traffic would slow us down and she'd have to drag out her presentation with jokes and her infectious wit. Very spontaneous to interact with things going on around us. Ride was comfortable, even when the driver gave us her "interpretive dance" with the bus. During a video sequence of King Kong attack, the driver rocked the bus back and forth, when the video displayed a subway scene, she did the same. Very realistic! Good value. Great time! Would recommend to anyone coming to NYC!
