One of a kind tour bus with angled seating!

Ticket Purchasing Tip: They added the "front row guaranteed" option on tickets due to fighting for seats on the RIDE, not the TOUR. I don't think it is worth it to pay extra for the front row for the TOUR, but probably is for the...More

Thank you for your 5 star review on THE TOUR. You will absolutely need to come back again because you didn't even take THE RIDE! Both THE TOUR and THE RIUDE are two very different experiences. THE RIDE is probably the one you have heard...More

Distraction attraction winner!

I saw the bus in Times Square and thought it looked like a fun activity to squeeze in between other staples while in NYC. The thought of getting off the street, putting our feet up and being entertained was nice. We didn’t expect to have...More

We purchased two Groupon tickets for The Tour. Upon receiving my confirmation email, I noticed we needed to schedule our ride and reserve our seats. The Groupon instructions said we needed to enter one Groupon voucher code at a time–you cannot enter more than one...More

We are not a rip off. We have been working with Groupon for many years, and if we weren't doing things right, they wouldn't work with us. The truth is that when you did your booking and the drop down menu showed 1 seat, that...More

During the ride, you don't go into the park, but you will ride by the park and see it from the street.
