The Roller Coaster, formerly Manhattan Express, at New York-New York travels through the property’s interior and exterior, and replaced the trains to resemble a traditional Checker Cab; the coaster is 203 ft, has a maximum drop of 144 ft, and reaches speeds up to 67 mph. The ride has undergone a variety of enhancements including the introduction of a magnetic braking system and new trains.
New York-New York uses the New York City influence of its name in several ways. Its architecture is meant to evoke the New York City skyline; the hotel includes several towers configured to resemble New York City towers such as the Empire State Building and the Chrysler Building.
In front of the property is a lake representing New York Harbor, with a 150 ft replica of the Statue of Liberty, and replicas of the Soldiers and Sailors Monument, the Whitney Museum of American Art, the Main Immigration Building on Ellis Island, and Grand Central Terminal.
