Enjoyed seeing all the sea life. Felt $20 was high for the length of time it took to walk through the reef.

Wife and i are animal fanatics, so we had to stop by. Had a great time seeing the different marine life. There’s even some reptiles at the beginning of the tour. Not too pricey compared to everything else in Vegas so that was nice, definitely worth stopping by

This was a nice break to get out of Casino's and just relax while watching the Sharks and fish swim, they have done a very nice job in setting up the paths that wind through the exbibit, enjoyable for any age.
