We weren’t sure this attraction would be worth the money. We were looking to fill some time before one of the Vegas shows so we took a chance. Needless to say it was well worth the cost of admission. The 360 degree aquarium tunnel was...More

Very good exhibits, and whilst it's not as large as other commercial aquaria, it's a great place to go if you want a couple of hours away from the general rowdiness of the Strip. We paid extra for the behind-the-scenes shark feeding experience with two...More

Good activity for about an hour. Good viewing of sea creatures and well displayed. Clean and well organized. They could provide more information on the animals. The actual shark is very small, more of an exit tunnel! They push the pictures they take when you...More

It totally sucked. Never come here ever again. It was so short. Only a couple exhibits, it says it lasts 1-2 hours but it's really like 25 minutes, its overpriced, a mediocre aquarium, and has a couple exhibits. I'll let you decide what to think...More

It was a nice aquarium - worth the price of admission. There was a variety of marine life and some educational displays. It was relaxing to sit in the tunnel and watch all the fish, sharks and other sea creatures swim around you. (We were...More
