So long as you're not expecting the Georgia Aquarium, this is a fun experience. It's about an hour long walk through an amazing array of sea creatures, that includes the ability for the kids to touch live stingrays. Given it's location at Mandalay Bay, try to plan other activities around it, as you'll be at the far end of the... More

This is a pretty cool place to visit! The glass tunnels where you can watch all sorts of fish swim all around you. Pretty neat for children to visit as well!! You are able to touch the sting rays too! Don't second guess this! You will not be disappointed!!

I don't get out to zoos or other animal attractions much, so when read there was this Shark Reef Aquarium when I was booking my stay, I knew I had to make the time to go see it. It took a long hike through the property to get to it - over to where the convention centre is - but... More

The Mandalay Bay Aquarium is a fine "shark tunnel" aquarium. If you live near or have visited any of the premium aquariums - Monterey, Chicago, Baltimore, Omaha - then this will be a little underwhelming. But given the limitations of putting one of these into the Las Vegas Strip, it's alright. The first part is actually reptiles - some turtles,... More

The aquarium is in the same price range as aquariums in ATL and Baltimore, but it's about a quarter of the size. I would say we spent about 1 hour here for our entrance fee that was somewhere around $90 for four people (2 adults 2 teens). If you needs the entertain kids I guess go because choices are limited...

Took my daughter to the Aquarium. This is a well maintained exhibit with an assortment of sea species.

I loved the Mandalay Bay Aquarium! It is not a huge aquarium but it has very interesting marine life that is really nicely showcased. The ticket also included a visit to their polar attraction that was fun and had cute things that kids would also enjoy.

What an experience. The Aquarium tank makes you feel like you are in the tank as well. You feel surrounded by all kinds of sharks and other species from the ocean.

Very nicely done, but very pricey for what you get to see. It's almost a miniature aquarium. The displays are fine but small and cramped. Make sure you get a BOGO or you'll feel ripped off at the cost.

My girlfriend love places like this, sea animals, status, glass figurings. So she had dragged me to this place kicking and screaming lol but I'm glad I went. A LOT to see, the price isn't that bad. I believe $19 a person, which I feel was worth it. You never know how many beautiful forms of life are out there... More
