Hg2 : The Hedonist

Shark Reef

Shark Reef is of the more family-friendly places to visit in Vegas. The coolest part about Shark Reef, the 90,560-square-foot aquarium with 1.6-million gallons of water and about 2,500 kinds of aquatic life (including 12 types of sharks), is the acrylic tunnel where you can watch schools of fish, sharks, rays and sea turtles swim right at you. Toward the end of this ‘walk-through’ aquarium with a sunken temple and sunken ship theme is another gem-the jellyfish exhibit, where the tanks are backlit in brilliant colors so the jellyfish appear to glow. Especially popular with kids (and curious adults) are the supervised touch tanks, where they can pet hermit crabs, starfish and even some small sharks.
