I'm a rollercoaster nut, and this one is a real dilly.
(That's right, I said 'dilly'!) According to the
propaganda, it's the only coaster in the world with a
"heartline roll and dive" maneuver. In the real world,
however, it's the ride that really matters.
Technical terms aside, this track does some
things that'll make the craps tables seem tame by
comparison. A fast ride that throws you around like a rag
doll, the Manhattan Express at New York-New York
is the scariest roller coaster in Las Vegas.
The Desperado out at Buffalo Bills wins for shear
speed, but this ride wins for sheer violence.
I went on it several times before the
casino opened to the public, and I had the bruises to show
for it. Give this beast a spin, but don't say I didn't
