Free Kids Attraction in Vegas: Mermaids' Swimming & Stingray Feedings
If you're headed to Las Vegas and looking for things to do with your kids. I would suggest getting off strip to see Silverton Casino Hotel's 117,000-gallon reef aquarium. With over 4,000 tropical fish plus stingrays and sharks, it features interactive stingray feedings and live mermaids.
We were recently there and our mermaid loving daughter loved it. She after all just recently requested for a Little Mermaid Birthday Party. She was hesitant to go near the aquarium at first. But warmed up after seeing all the other kids interacting with the mermaid.
The mermaid made sure she gave each kid enough one on one time before playing with the next kid, and also gave parents that needed time to take pictures. She even did a handful of back flips. Oh show off.. Hihi. I honestly love it and would like the opportunity to swim as a mermaid too. Maybe when I go to Boracay Island in the Philippines. They offer mermaid swimming lessons there. But for now. Let's leave it to the pros at Silverton Hotel in Las Vegas.
Mermaid swims take place:
Thursdays between 2:15 p.m. & 8:45 p.m.
Fridays and Saturdays between 2:15 p.m. and 9:45 p.m.
There's also stingray feeding show but we weren't able to catch it at this trip.
Interactive feeding shows:
Daily at 1:30pm and 4:30pm.
The staff marine biologist are equipped with a full-face communication mask and answers guests' questions during the feeding show.
In addition, the Mermaid Lounge features two 500-gallon jellyfish aquariums lit with LED lights.
