image (1)THE ICONIC 4th Year HOLIDAY RIDE (November 12 – January 3) is now on sale at both the 42nd Street and Sixth Avenue Box Offices; preparing for last Season’s ticket-buying hysteria which required so many added performances that THE RIDE’S management team called-out for a much earlier ON SALE HOLIDAY DATE as they garnered more rave reviews and yet another TripAdvisor® Certificate of Excellence Award.   
Their FIFTH.

Which was followed immediately with the coveted induction into the TripAdvisor® HALL OF FAME.


Created, written and directed by RICHARD HUMPHREY, the exclusively produced THE RIDE: HOLIDAY EDITON has become a key ingredient of the Holiday Magic of New York City and the Season’s most sought after Family Event.

The electric wizardry of New York’s Holiday brilliance is only eclipsed by the stars in the winter skies and the sparks of joy from within THE HOLIDAY’S RIDE’S toasty warm Motor Coaches as they escort their audiences around the glorious CITY OF LIGHTS celebrating the glorious CELESTIAL LIGHTS of Christmas, Hanukkah and Kwanza.

THE Iconic 4th Year HOLIDAY RIDE will dazzle its RIDERS with a custom designed exterior wrap, a vibrant 4.2 mile route highlighting the finest of New York’s breathtaking Holiday decorations and locations, new content, new seasonal videos, a dedicated soundtrack, a commissioned score, additional cast members and especially choreographed performance events.

THE RIDE is about to have a history-making 4th Iconic Holiday Season.

The Broadway Tourist Phenomenon has been breaking it’s own Box Office Records weekly and is poised to do even better for the next three weeks of sold-out shows and accolades aplenty.

Now entering it’s Sixth Sold-Out Season and about to sell a ticket to it’s 400,000th RIDER, the multi-million dollar, state-of-the-art, electronically-interactive FLEET of motor coaches has recently been awarded its FIFTH TripAdvisor® Certificate of Excellence Award which was immediately followed by its induction into THE TripAdvisor® HALL OF FAME; an accolade reserved for less than 1% of the worldwide Travel-Related Corporations reviewed by 60 million members and 140 million visitors.

THE RIDE has also been honored with a nomination for the 58th Annual Drama Desk Award in the prestigious Unique Theatrical Experience Category and a 2015 CONCIERGE Choice Award in the Best Tourist Attraction category.

Named the Third Most Successful Youth-Primed Attraction in New York City by FODOR’S Travel, THE RIDE was also just recently declared one of the Top 8 One-of-a–Kind Must-Attend Wild and Wonderful Spectacles in New York City by also named THE RIDE’S Gold Star Tour Guide, RORY LIPEDE as the Most Entertaining Tour Guide in New York.

A brainstorm of design, THE RIDE has become the singularly most requested ticket at Travel Agents’ offices all over the country.

The Broadway critics have delivered raves, as have audiences and celebrities.

As Tokyo, San Francisco, Los Angeles, Las Vegas, Boston, London, Hong Kong, and Dubai are currently being considered and scouted; ticket sales in New York are up 87% since August 11, 2011 when RICHARD HUMPHREY, CEO/CCO, was brought in as the S.W.A.T. Team to resuscitate an entrepreneurial idea that was promising but struggling.

Catching up to THE RIDE’S prosperity is THE TOUR.

Introduced by THE RIDE on March 23, 2015, THE TOUR is a 90-minute touring event which is becoming “the thing to do” for as many New Yorkers as their guests from out of town.
