This was such a good experience. My family member suggested it, and I was skeptical since I wasn’t sure this was how I wanted to spend my time in New York. But it was so much fun!! Really positive vibe, beautiful views of the city and Statue of Liberty, fast and fun ride, fun music. Highly recommend this to anyone looking for a fun thing to do in the city.
