What to Expect
Visit the Shark Reef at Mandalay Bay Hotel and Casino on the Las Vegas Strip anytime during its normal operating hours to see 14 different exhibits devoted to dangerous aquatic predators. 

There are more than 100 sharks at Mandalay Bay — and 30 of them appear in the aquarium’s largest exhibit, the 1.3-million-gallon Shipwreck. Visitors can experience several species of sharks (Galapagos sharks, grey reef sharks and zebra sharks), plus endangered sea turtles, stingrays, sawfish and many other fish through a mesmerizing acrylic tunnel. 

Other exhibits include the popular Touchpool, featuring stingrays and horseshoe crabs in a 2,500-gallon, interactive saltwater exhibit. Also, look for the rare golden crocodile, Komodo dragon, cichlids (one of the largest families of fishes), Burmese pythons (one of the five largest species of snakes in the world), Amazon predators (home to the giant arapaima, arrowana, pacu and freshwater stingrays), plus a Caribbean reef teeming with parrotfish, pufferfish and other beautiful tropical fish.

There are also venomous fishes, moon jellies, piranhas, a giant Pacific octopus and much more.

Unimpressed

Really not worth the entrance fee and disappointed as we expected so much more. Seen better elsewhere.

Super fun

This is a fun thing to see while in Vegas, it was smaller than I expected but was still super fun and cool to see all the creatures. I love that you can spend as much time in there as you want.

Nothing special

Having seen many large Aquatic centres around the world this was a major disappointment. Can be completed in less than 20 minutes and not worth the walk / tram ride from the MGM
