Created and produced by New York-based entertainment production company Running Subway, RiseNY offers an unforgettable three-part experience that is part museum, part ride. From fashion to finance, the unique attraction walks you through iconic moments in NYC history before culminating with an amazing bird’s-eye view tour of the Big Apple.
You’ll start your adventure in a replica of the historic City Hall Subway station, NYC’s first-ever subway line, and watch an intriguing film by award-winning documentarian Ric Burns about Time Square’s significant influence on NYC.
Next, guests will enter a seven-gallery exhibition that will connect them to NYC’s rich pop culture history. Get ready to explore historic artifacts and star-studded memorabilia like Beyonce’s Bill Blass designed gown and set recreations of NYC’s most famous TV shows. You can even become your own late night talk show host!
Finally, the experience concludes with an epic soaring ride that will fly you 30 feet above NYC’s iconic skyline. As the city’s first-ever flight simulation ride, you’ll get a unique bird’s-eye view of your favorite landmarks and moments from Central Park, the Statue of Liberty, Yankee Stadium, the Macy’s Day Parade and even the Times Square NYE Ball Drop!
With full motion seats that turn, dip, and soar, visitors of all ages will enjoy this nostalgic run through of what makes NYC such a special place. Set to quintessential New York soundtracks like Taylor Swift’s “Welcome to New York” and Frank Sinatra’s “Theme From New York,” you will feel the sensation of flight as the experience is further enhanced with wind, mist and scents to tingle your senses!
Located in Times Square, RiseNY perfectly captures NYC’s everlasting spirit in a place that’s often disregarded by New Yorkers, but is so significant in the city’s history and prosperity. Tickets start at $35 for adults and all ages are welcome.
