The Ride

THE RIDE is rapidly becoming THE way to tour Midtown and Times Square, turning the streets and sidewalks into a multi-venue immersive entertainment experience.

You sit sideways on in air-conditioned luxury aboard a multi-million dollar motor coach, giving you the best view in the house through floor-to-ceiling windows.

There are interesting presentations to watch on the 40 plasma screens, and more than 3000 LED lights to create the mood, but it’s when your host gets THE RIDE to pull over that showtime really starts. That person sitting quietly on the sidewalk will suddenly start breakdancing, playing an instrument, fire-eating, juggling or all four! At your next stop, you’ll see something different and equally unexpected.

Every show is unique and is performed by an incredibly talented troupe of actors, mime artists, musicians and all-round entertainers who want to have as much fun as you.

What You Get

The Sightseeing Pass gives one ticket for The RIDE.

* Please note: This is not a sightseeing tour. Due to the "Broadway" nature of the show, it is not recommended for children ages 6 and under.

How To Redeem

Tickets are limited per departure. Advance reservations strongly recommended. The purchase of a pass does not guarantee admission. Tickets are reserved online at a first-come/ first-served basis. To reserve your tickets, go online to and follow the booking guidelines on that page to complete your reservation. Your pass must be valid upon arrival. You will need to provide a valid credit card to create your reservation. Your credit card is not charged upon completing your reservation. Your reservation is held for free and only paid for with a valid scan of your Sightseeing Pass. If THE RIDE cannot collect a valid scan of your pass (i.e. your pass is expired or invalid, if you do not bring it with you, or if you do not arrive on time for your departure) your credit card will be charged for the full-price value of your booking. Your Sightseeing Pass must be valid for the day of your booking and will be scanned at boarding. Departs and returns to 42nd Street and 8th Avenue. Meeting Point: In front of Patrick's at 259 W 42nd Street. This is a 75 minute experience and, due to its popularity, sells out fast! Please refer to the confirmation email you receive from THE RIDE for your specific show's boarding details and instructions.
