    First time on it, about 7 years ago, my companion and I were both badly bruised from head to toe. Since then they've replaced the cars and have removed the MANHATTAN EXPRESS name, and it is much smoother. But also seems a bit slower in the second half, once it comes around to the strip side. Still a fun ride, but I get queasy every time. :vomit:

    Best ride I ever had on it was in a December in the dark. Very cold, very frightening. My face was numb from the chill, laughing all the way.

    Agreed with riding it in the dark... I rode it 8-9 years ago in the dark, so you can't tell which way it's gonna turn ahead of time to brace yourself... brutal!

    One of the teachers I work with went to LV for the first time over Spring Break and stayed at NYNY. I encouraged her to try the roller coaster but she was too chicken.

    I was glad to see this information put out there. I'll stop telling people to not ride it. I too was black and blue after riding this thing.

    Have to agree. Desperado is infinitely superior to NYNY and worth the drive. Also nice to walk around Buffalo Bill's and get a different vibe.

    x3. I rode Desperado a few trips ago. Definitely a better ride than NYNY and a cool view, but there is something to be said for riding the NYNY coaster right on the Strip and having that view while you're being thrown around. Ride em both! :D
