To be fair and upfront, this attraction was free for me due to my Mlife tier status. Still, it was a good little time waster. Its a change of pace and good distraction from what typically goes on in Vegas. I would recommend it for...More

I enjoyed the experience and the shark tanks by the shipwreck were my favourite. I went early evening time so it was pretty quiet. I spent about 40minutes watching the sharks! Some of the tanks at the start of the exhibition were a little cramped....More

A very disappointing visit to see shark reef and polar adventure. Small aquarium, some of the tanks inadequate to house their inhabitants. Over priced and all over in 30 minutes. Having had some fantastic experiences in Vegas this was unquestionably the worst! And then there...More

We went first thing in the morning as this opened. There was no queue. It is a nice average sized, well themed aquarium. It is a good way to spend an hour or so, but that is all you are likely to need. Avoid Polar...More

Totally fun with the kids to see the sharks and other aquatic animals. Really fun at Christmas since Santa’s there talking photos in the sunken ship while an school orchestra was playing holiday music.

Cost $25 pp, definitely not worth the money, finishes within one hour, limited sharks, definitely will not recommend anyone to go.

You would just watch for the price of admission. There are people diving in the tank ... and they are certainly paying for additional experiences. It's a good place to visit for a couple of hours.
