This is a nice little aquarium located in Mandalay Bay. They have a crocodile, Komodo dragon, sharks, and a touch tank. The best part was going to the glass ceiling room and seeing all the sharks and fish swim around you. Great place to take...More

Exceeded expectations. Nice display, not overwhelming in size, great explanations of the animals on exhibit. If you go to the Antarctica experience afterward, have someone get in line right away if there is no line. Not sure that is worth much of a wait. Otherwise,...More

If you live near a great aquarium as we do, you will not be impressed. It was fun to see the animals, but it's crowded and overpriced for what you get. We did enjoy the arctic exhibit because there were a lot of interactive elements...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.
