Fodor's Review

Whether you'll actually see the lions in action is as big a gamble as there is in Las Vegas. Nine times out of 10 when you walk through the see-through tunnel, you'll see the big cats snoozing above and below. If you're worried that the habitat is a little cramped, take comfort that the lions don't actually live in Vegas. They're trucked in daily from animal handler Keith Evans's 8½-acre ranch outside of town.

Not much here

There are lions here, but the "habitat" is small and not especially inviting. Usually the lions are asleep anyway. It's free, but here you get what you pay for. If you want to see animals on The Strip, Siegfried and Roy's Secret Garden is notably better.

Boring Lions

I went in the evening and it was crowded. You could barely see the lions, plus they didn't do much. It was cool that the trainers tried to play ball with them which made them a little playful for a few minutes. I'm glad it was free but overall boring.
