There are no seat belts. We don’t go fast enough to warrant seat belts.
We do not travel at high speeds. However, it does have the audience members facing sideways as we travel through New York City, so you can expect some repetitive starting and stopping that may affect some patrons.
Some interesting places are Times Square, The Chrysler Building, Grand Central Station, Bryant Park, NYC Main Branch of the Public Library, Empire State Building, 42nd street, Shubert Alley/Broadway theaters, 6th Avenue Skyscrapers, Carnegie Hall, Columbus Circle and Central Park.
If you get stuck in traffic consider it free entertainment. Our performers are handpicked from the worlds of stand-up and improv comedy and can turn even the most unexpected situations—traffic, weather, police motorcades—into hilarious moments.
