The NY SKYRIDE is a virtual tour that combines special effects and graphic engineering to create a full experience of the city in a high-tech, entertaining fashion. Once arriving to the second floor of the Empire State Building, you'll be seated in front of a towering 18-ft high-definition screen that is synchronized with a moving platform under your feet to create a ride of sorts that will propel you through the Big Apple. Actor Kevin Bacon will narrate this 30-minute guided tour as you soar across the skyline and visit nearly three dozen famous landmarks.
With the quality filming and interactive feel created by the moving platform, it will seem like you're actually visiting the different sites. Attractions covered in the tour include hotspots like the Statue of Liberty, Times Square, and Brooklyn Bridge. There will also be a powerful tribute to the World Trade Center Tragedy that will honor the lives that were lost in the tragedy. This is an educational as well as unique way to experience the numerous features that New York City has to offer, and is a fun activity for tourists and locals alike.
