We took our teenage girls to the Shark Reef at Mandalay Bay, expecting to entertain them for 90 minutes, or so. Given the ticket prices, we were sure that there would be plenty of exhibits to explore. Instead, we browsed a handful of large fish...More

It took me about 15 minutes to go through the entire experience and that includes me taking photographs and reading the exhibits-it is very small. I suspect some pet stores have larger displays. That being said the actual exhibits and detail that went into them...More

This was a good way to kill an hour. My kids really loved the ship part and being able to walk over the sharks and have the sharks swim over you.

You would just watch for the price of admission. There are people diving in the tank ... and they are certainly paying for additional experiences. It's a good place to visit for a couple of hours.
