The Manhattan Express is a cool looking coaster from the street. I love the way it looks as it swooshes past the buildings on the NYNY. Unfortunately, riding the ME leaves a lot to be desired. First, the cars are extremely stiff and uncomfortable. The restraints take a lot of the fun out of the experience. The ride itself starts well enough, but gets painful and kind of boring toward the end. (Consider that I can ride the Desperado at Buffalo Bill's, and I'm calling *this* ride uncomfortable.) Finally, it's expensive to ride. When the car comes in, they sometimes offer a second ride for a discount. I think I usually take it, because it makes me think I spent less on the ride by averaging the two.
Pros: Looks great
Cons: Cars uncomfortable, pricey
