This is our second time visiting Shark Reef. Both times we have gone, we had free tickets from the MLife MyVEGAS slot games. It is cool to see, but I don’t think it is anything special. We definitely wouldn’t go if we didn’t have free...More

The reef was a great experience for my active 12 year son. Lots of animals to see. Loves the touching area where you could touch sea rays. What really sucked was the polar world. No animals just interactive exhibits that were not good at all.

30min if you stop everywhere to see it all in detail. Bit overpriced in my opinion. They all looked like baby sharks. So while I was wondering how they can have large adult sharks in an aquarium inside a hotel... there were none. It was...More

Extremely long lines made it hard to actually look at any of the animals. The shark tunnels however were stunning. It only had a short jungle section and a shark room and you found yourself walking to the gift shop. For the price I would...More

As with many things on the strip, this is definitely overpriced. Yes, it is neat and it's really cool to walk through the tunnel with a shark swimming above you but definitely not worth the $25 that it costs. Try to find some discount tickets...More

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.
