New York-New York Hotel and Casino

Winding its way over the roof of the New York-New York hotel at the southern end of The Strip is the imaginatively named "Roller Coaster".

The ride is the only remaining Togo rollercoaster operating in the United States, and many would say that was a good thing. The desert sun hasn't done it many favours, and the ride is pretty rough. If that were not enough to discourage repeated re-rides, the $8 price tag will do.

Premier Rides gave the ride a bit of an overhaul in the mid-2000s, adding a magnetic braking system and new trains.
