The Mandalay hotel is beautiful but it’s a big hotel and casino. Be prepared to walk a ways and plan accordingly. Schedule a time in advance for the shark reef, that way you don’t need to wait in line to buy a ticket. Only negative was there were a lot of people (adults) in the shark tube and they hung around a bit so it was a little tough on kids to get a great experience. But over all is was good and my grandson liked it.

It was really nice to see the variety of fish and how they survived together. The tunnel was so neat. They did a great job of providing education about the various species represented there. It was a very quick view though. About 1 hour. When I read about the event, I thought it was much bigger. The space they have is action-packed though.
