New York, New York roller coaster – how awesome to ride a big roller coaster outside a Vegas hotel. With multiple barrel loops, drops and other fun features, this is something you’ll talk about for days. The coaster costs $14 for the first ride, and $7 if you want to go again (though you’ll need to decide that when you buy your ticket). Kids need to be 54” to ride. If they’re too short, or aren’t into thrill rides, you get a great view outside. And if you’re not already married, you can do so on the coaster for $600-$700 – including the minister. Send photos if you do!
Bellagio Fountain – this is a staple of any trip to Vegas. Bring the kids to see the dancing Bellagio outdoor fountains, choreographed to music and lights. The show runs every 15-30 minutes. Check the Bellagio Founain schedule here.
M & M World – I swore to myself I wouldn’t write about M & M World in Vegas, but alas, I’m doing it. They have an M & M World in New York City’s Times Square too. To me it’s just consumerism at its worst, but kids do like to buy M & M stuffed animals and get M & Ms by the pound in every flavor imaginable. It’s on the strip.
Spa - okay this isn't for the kids, but read our review of Canyon Ranch Spa in Las Vegas. As for dining, check out our reviews of Tao and Lavo.
