Fodor's Expert Review Shark Reef
Your journey through Mandalay Bay's long-running Shark Reef attraction begins in the mysterious realm of deep water at the ruins of an old Aztec temple. It's tropical and humid for us bipeds, but quite comfy for the golden crocodiles, endangered green sea turtles, and water monitors. Descend through two glass tunnels, which lead you deeper and deeper under the sea (or about 1.6 million gallons of water), where exotic tropical fish and other sea creatures swim all around you. The tour saves the best for last—from the recesses of a sunken galleon, sharks swim below, above, and around the skeleton ship. Elsewhere you'll find a petting zoo for marine life, a Komodo dragon exhibit, and a special jellyfish habitat. If you plan to visit other MGM Resorts attractions you can save with their three-for-$57 promotion.
