Ocean Casino Resort is introducing a new, faster way for gamblers from New York City to come to Atlantic City for a little gaming and a little time at the beach this summer -- roundtrip helicopter service from Manhattan.

Ocean Casino to Offer Helicopter Transportation to Manhattan

Ocean Casino has teamed with BLADE helicopter transportation service to offer travel from New York City directly to Ocean Casino's new rooftop helipad beginning later this month.

Ocean Casino Resort is now booking trips on a 6-passenger helicopter beginning on Saturday, May 25, with additional flights scheduled for every Saturday in July and August through Labor Day Weekend.

Helicopter Trip Specifics

Passengers would leave New York City in a 6-passenger helicopter from a helipad on West 30th Street in Manhattan for a 49-minute copter ride to the helipad at Ocean Casino.

According to Ocean's Facebook page, "Guests can "elevate" their experience further with an overnight stay at Ocean including a guaranteed suite upgrade and exclusive amenities provided by Moët & Chandon, Ocean's official champagne partner for this launch."

What's it Cost?

You knew this wasn't going to be cheap, right?

The copter ride costs $695 a seat with roundtrip travel required. That's $1390 per seat roundtrip from NYC to AC and back.

Obviously, this is a high-end way to travel, but you can't beat the convenience and WOW factor of landing on the roof at Ocean Casino ready to party on a Saturday night.
