    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.

    I live in Alaska and the Sealife Center in Seward is much better. It was an average experience. I felt like the cost was higher than the experience.

    My husband and I visited the Mandalay BAY Shark Reef for my birthday. I lived seeing all the animals there and learning a little about them. It was my favorite site in Vegas. I would definitely visit again if I went back to Vegas. Highly recommend it!

    A nice pace to visit, and there is a touch pool with sting rays for you to experience. A guide was giving a talk whilst we were there and it was very informative. The fish are magnificent, and there is plenty of information available on each of the breeds. Certainly worth a

    What is there is well done and interesting to look at but for the price it's way too short. We bought the MGM 3 for $57 deal and I would definitely recommend that if you're looking for a better price.

    The aquarium is clean and well maintained. The atmosphere is great all around, beautiful designs between the tanks. We loved the 2 underwater corridors the temples and the sunken ship. The high tech arctic experience is included in the ticket, but it has a separate entrance.
