    Much larger aquarium tanks than most places - worth a visit. You'll be in and out within an hour or so depending on crowds, and the rahs and sharks are amazing.

    One of the best aquariums I’ve been to! Small and expensive, but very nice. You can experience the whole thing in under an hour. $15 parking

    AMAZING. So many beautiful creatures to see & even some you can touch! Guides are educated in answering questions about the habitat life. Really enjoy coming here every time.

    It's on the Strip, but it's easily overlooked due to its location in the back of Mandalay Bay. Great spot to relax and unwind. The jellyfish tank and the Shipwreck exhibit are especially mesmerizing.

    A good little diversion at the Mandalay. It only needs about half an hour of your time.

    I took my toddler, and she had a great time looking in the aquariums. It's not a huge aquarium, but it's still pretty impressive.

    Fun, with small to medium sharks (not too big for the tanks). Unspectacular but worth seeing once every few years.

    Kind of a long walk (were at the MGM) but well worth it! There is a free train from Excalibur to Mandalay, take it if u wanna save yourself blisters!

    The best part about the aquarium is the shark tank that leads to a 'shipwreck'

    It's small (45 minutes to walk through) and can be mobbed with running children. We went as it opened which so mostly empty and no lines

    Make sure your phone and camera are charged, and that you have a flash even if you come during the day. The best shots start at the tunnels so pace yourself.

    Not very large but very informative and so much cool stuff inside! For the kids it's perfect and they support wildlife finds also

    Its neat to see but get your tickets at a discounted rate like we did. It did not look worth the $19 adult price. Neat but for a family too much.

    Go there mad early to get tickets or elsewhere because the wait in line makes you want to cry. Line can end past the wedding photo place :'(

    Buy the season pass. That way if the exhibit is crowded you can just cruise on through and come back a little later

    Not bad for an aquarium in the middle of the desert! It's really humid inside, so style your hair accordingly.

    Well worth the experience. You can pet sting rays if you wish. And be ready for that infamous green screen, don't wear green.

    Sharks can go thru thousands of teeth in their lifetime. Some sharks have over 3,000 teeth in their mouths and may lose over 50,000 teeth during their lifetime.

    Super small aquarium. Only $18 to get in, but you'll be through it in like 30 mins. Cool setup, just not a lot to it

    Did you know that the main shark tank of the Mandalay Bay Shark Reef holds approximately 1.3 million gallons of water.

    Get your tickets in advance at a place where they actually give you a ticket so you can avoid the line.

    The heaviest animal in the Mandalay Bay Shark Reef is the Green Sea Turtle, which weighs between 300 and 315 pounds.

    Don't pay for this, use your comps, it's over priced & packed with tourists who make this 20 min walk through aquarium take an hour. The shark portion is awesome, ill give you that but no worth $

    If you have your OWD license you can swim in the biggest tank with sharks.
