Roller Coaster Atop a Casino

Field review by the editors.

Las Vegas, Nevada

You might find yourself on the Las Vegas Strip wondering who gets to ride the roller coaster that weaves among the faux skyscrapers atop the New York New York casino. In fact, anyone can, as long as they're at least 54 inches tall. You board the ride in a fake subway station, and it lasts a little under three minutes. The ride tops out at 203 feet, hits 67 mph, and includes loops and a barrel roll (Renting a locker is recommended, otherwise your valuables might fly away). It was built in 1996 for a reported $25 million. For several hundred dollars you can get married on the roller coaster, minister included.
