My son and I went here in early May because he loves aquariums We had Go City Passes that included general admission for this attraction. Access to a day pass for Mandala Bay pool NO LONGER comes with this ticket purchase. We enjoyed everything from the sharks to the Komodo dragon. It takes between 1-2 hours looking at and reading about the exhibits. It does end into the gift shop and they did have some cute items on there with strip prices. A food court is nearby but I would highly recommend the border grill for lunch. I would recommend the aquarium but once you’ve seen it you probably won’t have to go back.
A Very nice place to visit, especially if you have younger children. Plenty of interesting things to see, lots of different habits (tanks) just an overall good experience. It's worth planning to spend some time on that side of the strip as the aquarium will only take an hour or two depending on how much you stay at each attraction.
