This aquarium is a great option for families with kids, but adults may find it underwhelming. It only takes about half an hour to tour the entire place, and compared to other aquariums the price felt a bit high for the size. Despite this, we still had a good time, but it seems like the experience is best suited for children.

Often when coming to Vegas, people don’t think of family friendly activities and this should be considered one of the top 5 on the Las Vegas strip. located at the back of the casino, not too far of a walk from the parking garage, you’ll find the shark reek aquarium. Make sure to take plenty of photos and enjoy your time in the open space observing the aquarium’s. It’s awesome to see them cleaning them so often!

It was pretty cool. I've definitely been to more elaborate aquariums but this was still worth going! I loved the tunnels you walk through and the room where you can see sharks above or below you. Loved the tacky but cute photos they take of you upon entering that's a nice touch. It was sort of hard to find the place though, no marked entrance and no signs.

Overall not bad, but probably one of the smallest aquariums I've been to. Maybe that's not surprising since it's inside a hotel though. However, since it's Vegas they also charge quite a lot for such a short experience. I took my time, and still managed to finish in under 30 minutes. Length of the experience aside, the place was well maintained & had quite a good variety of sea life. There are a couple distinct zones with their own themes, and a handful of non-aquatic exhibits as well. I think it was worth doing once, but I probably wouldn't spend the money again - unless they had some sort of special exhibit going on.

It's nice. But to be honest I've expected a bit more. We've seen many aquariums around the world and there are much better ones! Part of the aquarium was closed due to renovations, hopefully it will be better in the future! The staff is mostly friendly. At the ticket booth we showed our sightseeing pass, the lady there sent us away because their internet was down (for the last 3 weeks🙄). But luckily I was persistent and asked for a manager. She was really nice, we didn't have to discuss with her, she just asked her staff why she didn't give us a hand written ticket. So we were glad and could go in!

This place is beautiful and super clean! Definitely a must do if you’re going to Vegas with kids! The pricing is very reasonable for an aquarium and they even have a virtual reality section. We were unable to do it as my daughter is 4 and it is 5+ but we were refunded that amount without a hassle. Overall a great experience and a must do while visiting!
