The Big Apple Coaster is a roller coaster at the New York-New York Hotel and Casino featuring a 180-degree “heartline” twist and dive maneuver and 203ft drop! And perhaps best of all is the coaster´s setting! There is something especially cool about seeing a huge roller coaster in a non-theme park setting, it blends in beautifully to the city and is an iconic landmark for all to enjoy. The ride is known for having some bumpy or rougher twists, so if you are sensitive to this maybe sit this one out. The regular ride ticket is $19, re-rides cost $10 and an all-day ride pass is $35. You also have the option of a virtual reality alien-themed experience for an upcharge.
