Sharks were disapointing. overall rubbish. can spend the same in UK at blue planet and be in there all day with various animals and gigantic sharks.... More

I enjoyed this place, it was fun. I wished there was more to see, but the sharks were very cool to watch.

Mandalay Bay is a beautiful hotel and worth the visit by itself. It is a long walk from the entry to the Shark Reef. The cost is not excessive but not cheap either. The walking tour (Wheel chairs available) is interesting and watching shark, turtles,sawfish and others swim above you is different. But overall it is ok but not spectacular... More

Visited just before Thanksgiving with the kids. Decent aquarium with alligators, snakes, jellyfish, and plenty of fish and sharks. Walk at your own pace and various pullout available. Look for a discount in one of the countless Vegas books around.

This is the second time I've been here over the years. I wish it were a longer exhibit, but if you have kids, they can make it longer. I believe it was $20 p.p. for an adult. It is clean and beautifully kept (not smelly at all) and I think anybody who loves animals can appreciate that. It is worth... More

My family loved the Shark Reef. The kids loved the pool that you can touch the animals in. It's definitely something you should take your children to. We were a little dissapointed that the sharks weren't any bigger but you could understand why they weren't.

We have been here twice now. It is an enjoyable display that is easy to walk through. No time limits. Quite a bit to see. Really enjoyed the jelly fish display. The turtles were fun to watch too. Walking through the tunnel, they seem to 'swim' all around you. A nice break from the standard Vegas fare.
