As if the outside of New York-New York wasn’t busy enough, someone decided to knock it up a few notches by having a roller coaster wind around the whole thing. The whimsically designed cars evoke Manhattan taxi cabs and run at speeds up to 67 mph while going through drops of as much as 144 feet, a full loop, and the “heartline” twist, which simulates a jet-fighter barrel roll. And if this reality isn’t enough for you, upgrade to the virtual reality experience. You’ll don a fancy VR headset for the ride that immerses you into a vivid, 4-D world of chasing aliens while you fly high above the Las Vegas Strip. Adrenaline junkies may find it too tame, but the average fun-seeker will do a lot of screaming. If your idea of fun is staying closer to the ground, try the amusements in the arcade that features carnival and video games.
