A state-of-the-art soaring ride that will take visitors on a thrilling flight over NYC is opening on December 15th, and we couldn’t be more ecstatic!
Created and produced by New York-based entertainment production company Running Subway, RiseNY is debuting the city’s first-ever flight simulation ride for an unforgettable experience you can’t find anywhere else.
Celebrate NYC’s iconic aspects from its skyline, fashion, film, Broadway, music and more for an uplifting adventure that combines a theme park-style ride with museum exhibit galleries.
On board, guests will be suspended 30 feet into the air inside a 180-degree, 40-foot projection dome that gives riders an 8K aerial footage view of the city.
With full motion seats that turn, dip, and soar, visitors of all ages will tour NYC’s iconic skyline and landmarks from a unique bird’s-eye view to experience NYC like never before. Set to quintessential New York soundtracks like Taylor Swift’s “Welcome to New York” and Frank Sinatra’s “Theme From New York,” feel the sensation of flight as the experience is further enhanced with wind, mist and scents to tingle your senses!
“I was inspired after riding ‘Soarin’ Over California’ in Disneyland with my son, and always thought, wouldn’t it be amazing to fly over and around NYC?” said James Sanna, President and CEO of Running Subway.
Visitors will begin their journey through the city’s vibrant pop-cultural evolution with a film by award-winning documentarians Ric Burns and James Sanders. Explore a re-creation of the city’s first subway station and other historic artifacts & star-studded memorabilia like Madonna’s custom Keith Haring jacket, and a statue of Alexander Hamilton commissioned by his son.
“It’s an incredible love letter to the world’s greatest city and encapsulates the beating heart, and hub, and dazzling point of convergence that is New York,” said Ric Burns.
It’s sure to be the adventure of a lifetime!
