I am a HUGE lover of roller coasters and go on them any chance I can get. I was so excited to ride this yesterday. I thought $15 was a little expensive for a roller coaster, but I figured it is a Vegas attraction so...More

This coaster is amazing! I was a little hesitant because I had assumed that since the coaster is at the top of a hotel that it couldn't be all that good. I was pleasantly surprised. This coaster is fast, loopy, and quite a decent ride...More

We road the coaster while here. It was average to say the least. The cool part was going around the casino but it wasn't all that great if you have been to a theme park and road other coasters. It was tame in my opinion....More

This coaster needs to be torn down. It's shaky, unpleasant to ride and above all way to expensive. Unless you're in the front seat, all you can see is the seat in front of you. This was a complete waste of money. I would recommend...More

This was the first thing we did in Vegas! Went to New York New York (which was one of my fav casinos) and we rode the coaster. The coaster is really shaky and bumpy rather than smooth but it is tall, provides awesome views and...More

The website does not show special pricing for hotel guests but definitely ask. If there are four people then the family pass with 5x7 photo is a good option.

Typically the line will be less than 20 mins if there is a line at all. But you have been warned the ride is extremely rough! I am a coaster enthusiast and I have been on woodies (Wooden coasters) that aren't as rough as... More
