Swim in the thrilling Las Vegas shark tank
We’re one of the best pools in downtown Las Vegas and the only one with live sharks! Our Las Vegas aquarium is located at the Tank Pool and has a 3-story water slide open to all ages. As you slide down the yellow tube, you will pass through a transparent section seeing all the sharks and fish swimming by as they watch you inches away from your body. Then splash down with excitement into the Tank Pool at the bottom of the ride. WooHoo! You just swam with the sharks!
See the shark tank water slide Vegas video on the Fremont Street Experience YouTube channel.
