Big Apple Roller Coaster information
This Coney Island–inspired roller coaster makes a heartline twist-and-dive maneuver, producing a sensation similar to that felt by a pilot during a barrel roll in a fighter plane. The rest of the three-minute trip includes stomach-dropping dips, high-banked turns, a 180-degree spiral and blink-and-you'll-miss-it views of the Strip. Hold on tight: your head, back and shoulders will take a beating on this bumpy ride. All riders must be at least 54in tall.
More than a million people ride this roller coaster each year, including blushing brides and grooms who get hitched on board (wedding ceremonies from $600).
