Mandalay Bay set to open aquarium

By Jan Hogan
lasvegas.com Gaming Wire

      Mandalay Bay will open the city's latest attraction on the Strip Tuesday, when it unveils its $40 million tropical aquarium experience Shark Reef.
      The main tank holds more than 1 million gallons of water and features a 20-foot-long acrylic tunnel for surround-type viewing, similar to Sea World's attraction in Southern California. The predator-based attraction features 2,000 animals from 100 different species, with 13 shark species. Also on display will be jellyfish, manta rays, sea turtles, crocodiles and other exotic animals.
      New technology will allow divers in the tanks to talk with tourists and answer their questions. Flat-screen monitors will also present information at each of the exhibits. The tunnel leads to a sunken ship in the middle of the tank which will allow another site to view the fish. For children, there is a touch tank.
      The Shark Reef will be open 10 a.m. to 11 p.m. daily. The cost for adults is $12.95 and $9.95 for children 12 and younger. Locals will receive a $3 discount.
