  1. Very Fun, Affordable
    - October 12, 2015

    This was worth the money for us. It was a cheap and fun way to see animals. My kids were all for it! It was a little crowded for my liking. They allowed us to take pictures which I really liked. I captured some great moments. I would definitely go here again!

  2. Fun experience for the kids
    - August 9, 2015

    I felt like the tickets were a little overpriced, but I still enjoyed it. I liked how you could pet the sting rays. And the shipwreck was really cool too!

  3. Not worth the money
    - February 27, 2015

    Tour was short and not worth the money. Go see Bodies or Secret Garden instead.

  4. not bad
    - January 9, 2015

    This was a nice break from the other things we were doing. Not a bad price but there were quite a few people so walking through was a little frustrating. Also was hard to get to the glass to get close. Other than that the stingrays were a great experience since we were able to “pet” them. There we several small sharks and we were fortunate enough to see the elusive turtle. I would go again with someone who hasn’t been there before. But not on my own since there are to many other things to do.

  5. Beautiful aquarium
    - March 10, 2014

    I loved everything about it. They allow pictures all through your visit. They provide friendly, knowledgeable staff with fun and interesting facts. You can let the stingrays and there are many different amazing creatures!! The shipwreck Is quite lovely, and the tunnels a very nice addition, making you feel closer to the sharks! Although its a nice trek through Mandalay Bay, it’s a wonderful, relaxing way to spend an hour away from the hustle of the strip! Adult tickets are $18 each.

  6. Beautiful Aquarium
    - March 10, 2014

    I found it all fascinating! They had a very nice piranha display, a place to pet stingrays, very knowledgeable staff. The shipwreck is a such beautiful scene! Nice and relaxing after the hustle of the strip. It’s a good walk through Mandalay Bay, but for $18 it’s a nice, relaxing way to spend about an hour of the day.

  7. great fun
    - January 13, 2014

    It fun to walk and watch the fish swim around walking down the path to see the fish is great fun watching the sharks swim around. It’s great fun to touch the fish in the little tank to.

  8. Too short for the money
    - August 5, 2013

    It was only $18 but so crowded, typical selfish people staying in one spot not budging for a person who just wants a glance or a photo. Whole thing took less than 20 minutes to go through.

  9. Too short not great
    - August 1, 2013

    $18 an adult not awful but too much for just a short walk through. Was told by staff there was this fish, that type of this and that but I did not see any at all. Very crowded, kids running free, come on parents pay attention to your kids!

  10. not my fav
    - March 28, 2013

    We travelled al the way to the south strip to see this it is miles from the front of the hotel. I found it pricey just to look at the animals, it was rather boring actually and very expensive!

  11. Super fun !!!!!!
    - March 25, 2013

    It’s was really fun it’s so good for kids and adults you see alot of ocean animals and land animals you get to touch stingrays it was fun!!!! go and see it and stay at the hotel to very nice rooms and services

  12. Not worth the money
    - January 10, 2013

    Hubs and I took the kids… can’t remember what we paid exactly per ticket, but I remember it was quite pricey. Was very disappointed with what I saw as they did not have much to offer at all. Kids were unimpressed as well, they were bored within 10 minutes. I would not recommend this venue. Your money is best spent somewhere else.

  13. was ok
    - October 22, 2012

    Not worth the money. Attraction made to seem way bigger than it was no big sharks or sea turtles.

  14. absolutely fun
    - October 2, 2012

    The shark reef aquarium was definitely worth the money. It was a cheap fun way to spend some time relaxing and watching all the various animals.

  15. really fun
    - May 29, 2012

    It’s not as much as I thought it would be but it defiantly was fun. The sting rays were amazing and so was everything else.
