Mention the words sugar, sweet treats and Paris Hotel in one sentence to your grandkids, and they’ll be flying to the Sugar Factory in no time. Considered the strip’s sweetest spot, this restaurant is part-attraction, part eatery and for your family – all fun. Though the menu features classics like pizza, burgers, pastas, salads and steaks, their breakfast options, served all day, and their dessert menu are the standouts.
The Roller Coaster, New York-New York

Hours: 10:30am-12am (daily
Price: $14 per person (53” and over)
Sure, you’re in Las Vegas, but The Roller Coaster will give you a great taste of New York with its New York subway-themed station. What begins with a 180-foot lift is quickly followed by a few loops and dives known as the “heartline” twist. There’s nothing like it in the U.S. and the only other ride like it is in Japan’s Hamanako Pal Pal Park. Talk about an international ride! So grab your grandkids (if they’re 53” and over) and enjoy the ride.
