Need another reason to visit Las Vegas? You got it! Silverton casino has recently opened its new expansion, which houses several beautiful salt and fresh-water aquariums, which are free to the public. Yep – The Aquarium At The Silverton is where you can explore the ocean without getting wet!
The main aquarium at this fun Vegas hotel is a 117,000 gallon artificial reef which is home to over 4,000 tropical fish from all over the world! Can you imagine how many colors would be in that tank!
The aquarium is also home to 3 species of stingrays and 3 species of sharks. Come face to face with your favorite creatures in all their glory!
The aquarium is a beautifully designed octagonal aquarium with viewing on all sides. The front viewing window is an impressive convex window that extends 25’ X 12’ and is one of the largest single piece of curved acrylic in the US. Pretty impressive!
Don’t miss those family interactions and experiences too, such as the Live Interactive Feedings and Mermaid Swims. The Aquarium At The Silverton is also home to two different underwater shows, the first being an interactive fish feeding show where one of their staff marine biologists dives in the aquarium with a full-face communication mask that allows them to interact with guests while feeding the amazing animals.
There is also a question and answer portion where you can ask the diver any question you’d like! So if there is something you have always wanted to know, now is your chance!
An underwater adventure in the desert – pretty incredible don’t you think!
