The Big Apple Coaster (formerly Manhattan Express and The Roller Coaster) is a steel TOGO hyper virtual reality roller coaster at the New York-New York Hotel and Casino on the Las Vegas Strip. The ride’s trains are themed to New York City taxicabs. It is the only roller coaster by TOGO still operating in North America. Learn more
Built by TOGO, it had a reputation in the past for being a rough, even painful roller coaster. Some riders have gotten bruised on the shoulders from the old trains due to the roughness of the ride and negative G-force.
In 2004 Premier Rides installed magnetic brakes on the ride. In August 2006, Premier also installed new trains to replace the original TOGO trains. Since the Premier train installation, the ride has been noticeably smoother, as opposed to when the TOGO trains were in use. For 2018, a virtual reality option was added. Next article
