It's pretty nice

It's not a giant aquarium but it is pretty nice. There are a decent number of tanks with things in them. The sharks are the main part of the exhibit. And they are cool.

We were looking for something to do with our toddler, who loved the place. The aquarium is quite small, but its exhibits are impressive--lots of large-scale viewing areas and, as promised, lots of sharks. We went when the aquarium opened at 10, so it wasn't at all crowded. Given the small size, I doubt it would be as much fun... More

This is a pretty small exhibit compared to some of the larger city's aquarium in the states, but worth a break from gambling to check out. The sharks are cool and wild and the exhibit is maintained very well.

We really loved this aquarium, lot's of exhibits and animals/fish to see and good educational element too. I loved the shipwreck and the tunnel well worth a visit!

You want to gamble and see and enjoy the casino at Mandalay Bay?! Well, drop off the kids - with one who is more responsible and older or an adult who doesn't like to gamble and let them see this wonderful sight. You can then reunite and enjoy other pleasures of the Mandalay and a secret - use the interhotel... More

This is a nice little aquarium - a good diversion on a rainy day. Nice variety of fish - and tanks that you feel like you're in. Great family fun.

Price is $20 and worth it. You walk at your own pace. We spent a lot of time petting the sting rays. Also the large shark tank at the end is very cool.

I had low expectation of going here for some reason, but the aquarium is totally great. Although small they've made great use of their space. My kids loved it!

Tickets may be considered a little pricey, but worth it for us. We spent a good two hours in there. Exhibits were like most other places, but still a change of pace if you arent into gambling, etc. There is a tram that you can take from the Mandalay Bay, to the Luxor or and the Excalibur. Makes it nice... More

I have been here more then once and always go back. The whole facility is well maintained. The tanks are huge and filled with many different varieties of fish. Great place to go and relax while in Las Vegas. I highly recommend it!
