The Big Apple Coaster
Where can you experience towering drops, multiple loops and stunning views of the Strip? Located on the popular intersection of Tropicana Ave. and Las Vegas Blvd., the Big Apple Coaster at New York-New York is hard to miss. Set in a perfect postcard shot, its surroundings include a replica of the New York harbor, a 150-foot model of the Statue of Liberty as well as several of Manhattan’s popular buildings. And to make things even more fun, the roller coaster trains are designed like New York taxicabs. The ride begins with a steep hill, building great suspense and anticipation. Enjoy the aerial view of the south end of the Strip while you can, because before you know it, you’re plummeting down a 144-foot drop. The intensity continues with loops, corkscrews and hills, speeding up to 67 miles per hour. After the ride, you’ll feel surprisingly energized. Don’t forget to stop and see your photo, which is available for sale.
